Audi TT a purist’s dream

Audi has released details of the Audi TT clubsport quattro study, a look into what would make the perfect TT roadster.

With a cut down wraparound windscreen and no A-pillar to support it, a flat front grille, bucket seats and air inlets, the "sports character" of the TT roadster’s exterior design harks back to classic motorcars of the 1950s.

However, remote control doors, 20-inch alloys, ceramic brakes and a two-litre 300 horse power turbo charged four-cylinder engine ensure that the insides of the TT clubsport quattro are cutting edge.

The immense power of the engine is transferred to all four wheels, making the roadster the first TT to employ four-wheel drive.

According to the study: "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."

Although the new TT roadster is only a concept, Audi has claimed that it is considering a small-scale production of the model.
