Audi TT Ultra Quattro concept, weighing just 1,111kg, hits 100kph in 4.2 seconds

Audi and Volkswagen always celebrate the annual fan-fest in Wörthersee, Austria, with a few hot concepts, and this year Ingolstadt is preparing a 2.0-litre turbocharged TT with a 300kg weight reduction.

Thanks to 306bhp and 400Nm from 1,900rpm to 5,000rpm, this TT Ultra Quattro concept, weighing just 1,111kg, hits 100kph in 4.2 seconds.

That crash diet is due to carbon-fibre and fibreglass body panels, which cut 100kg, while engine mods lose another 25kg and the wheels shave 20kg.

To top it off, there are lighter seats out of an R8 GT, a lightweight racing battery and a titanium exhaust to boot.
