TT clubsport study considered for production

Audi is considering a limited production run for its TT clubsport quattro study, which it revealed for the first time today.

The TT clubsport is a stripped down version of Audi’s roadster in an effort to create a TT in its ‘purist form’.

The chunked up speedster is powered by a 2.0 TFSI engine with even more power than the 260bhp familiar from the Audi S3. The turbocharged four-cylinder unit with petrol direct injection breaks the 300bhp barrier. Power is transferred to all four wheels, making the TT clubsport quattro the first new-generation TT with four-cylinder engine and quattro permanent four-wheel drive.

Ceramic brakes are fitted in the TT for the first time, following suit from Audi’s RS 4, the A8 and S8.

There is a deliberate lack of visual interruptions in the side line and there are no door handles, customers can open the car with a remote control.

A spokesperson at Audi said: “The Audi TT clubsport quattro is a purist driving machine that combines the performance of a sports car with a unique design language.

“It consequently remains a TT on the one hand, while at the same time demonstrating just what is possible with such a fascinating production vehicle. The possible small-series production of this model is being considered.”
