AUDI PLOTTING HARDCORE TT
Mooted track day special will establish TT as a true driver's car, or so Audi hopes...
in reality bothhave failed to hit the mark, and as a result, the TT is still lacking that edge it needs to bring it into the pantheon of truly sought-after drivers’ cars.
Audi is hoping to change that, according to an Autocar story that quotes Audi development boss Wolfgang Durheimer (ex of Bentley), who signalled his desire to build a more extreme version of the next-generation model.
According to the story, the new car would be constructed from a mix of different materials in an effort to keep weight down, possibly as low as 1000kg, and would feature some sort of cheeky roll cage.
Audi’s management team are apparently meeting this week to consider whether or not a model like this would get their approval, so its fate will be sealed pretty soon. But until it is, we want to know what you think. Would a hardcore TT succeed? Is it what people want right now? Would PHers consider buying a TT ‘GT3’, were such a thing to enter production? And could it help the TT range as a whole to shed its slightly posey image?
