2014 Geneva Motor Show LIVE: Audi TT quattro Sport Concept

Besides introducing their biggest asset this year in Geneva, the third generation of the sport TT model, Audi managed to surprise us all with a very good concept – the TT quattro sport.

While Mercedes-Benz and BMW are coming to the Geneva auto show with big models – like the new generation of the C-Class sedan or the i3 and i8 eco sub brand models, Audi only had a relatively small announcement, as the TT model, albeit a true sports coupe, is only marginal to the company’s sales.

So, surprise, surprise, here comes the TT quattro sport – a model which no one saw coming, a feat hard to realize in today’s rumor wind mill. Setting itself apart from the new TT, the quattro sport concept adopts a more aggressive styling, with uncommon 20-inch alloy wheels, a CFRP splitter and other design cues that set it apart – like the matrix LED headlights and bigger air intakes.

The true heart of the concept is, by far, the engine – Audi managed to squeeze from a 2.0-liter no less than 420 hp (309 kW)/6,700 rpm and 450 Nm (331 lb-ft) of torque at 2,400 to 6,300 rpm – which amounts to an astonishing 210 hp per displacement liter, more than what their R18 2001 Le Mans-winner.

With a dry weight of 1,344 kg (2,963 lbs), the Audi quattro sport concept goes to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds, aidded by the all-wheel drive system and the S tronic dual-clutch gearbox.
