"With our Audi TT quattro sport concept show car, we wanted to demonstrate what the new TT's technology can do if you take it a step further," explains Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Board Member for Technical Development. "This car is designed for racing - an extreme driving machine for the motorsports enthusiasts among our customers."
Audi TT quattro sport's Exterior Styling
The flat Matrix LED headlights and the broad Singleframe grill dominate the study's front end. The grill's striking frame displays the quattro logo and holds the dark diamond-pattern grill.
Through their pronounced edges, the substantial air intakes - which also feature diamond-pattern grills - appear almost like inserted airboxes. They thus illustrate a key element in the new Audi TT's design language: elements like the greenhouse and wheel arches create the impression of being individual bodies, thus producing the typical tension. The show car rests on 20-inch wheels with a central locking mechanism and semi-slick tires.
A splitter made of carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) stretches toward the front to round off the front end at the bottom and increase the downforce on the front axle.
The silhouette of the Audi TT quattro sport concept - which features a paint finish entirely in Crystal White - is athletic and dynamic from every angle. Typical for a TT, the wheel arches form the classic semicircles. They extend 30 millimeters (1.18 in) further than on the series-production car on every side, giving the car's stance on the road a decidedly confident air. They are connected by powerfully accentuated sill trims. Their lower segments are made of CFRP. Together with the splitter and the rear diffuser, which stretch all the way to the wheel arches, they form an aerodynamically effective contour.
On the rear, the wide CFRP diffuser that extends beyond the vehicle silhouette underlines the show car's racing character. Delineated by vertical edges, the diffuser surrounds two large, fully circular tailpipes that are located further outward than on the series-production car; large air outlets are positioned on the sides beneath the taillights. A large, fixed wing increases the downforce on the rear of the Audi TT quattro sport concept.
