Inside, Audi R8 GT bucket seats further reduce weight by 48 pounds while the lightweight wheels are 44 pounds lighter than factory units. The TT Ultra Quattro concept is powered by the TT S’s 2.0-liter, turbo-four engine but has been tuned for more performance with 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque.
According to the German automaker, the TT Ultra Quattro concept accelerates to 62 mph 1.3 seconds faster than the TT S, clocking in at 4.2 seconds. Changes aren’t all about weight and more performance though, the extreme TT model also has stiffer suspension, carbon-ceramic brake rotors, an aggressive aerodynamic package, and next-generation tech such as cameras instead of mirrors and a new digital instrument panel.
