Plans are underway to develop a hardcore super-light Audi TT, according to Audi’s development boss, Wolfgang Durheimer.
A ‘multi-material’ version of the next-generation TT is being worked with a target of a 1000kg kerb weight, even though it will get a five-cylinder engine, all-wheel drive and a roll cage.
Sources describe the car - which will use steel, aluminium and carbonfibre in the construction of its MQB architecture - as a kind of 911 GT3 for the TT line-up.
Durheimer, who is leading the project’s pre-development work said: “The TT is an icon car for Audi and has a very interesting future”
Audi’s management team will meet over the coming week to consider whether to give the green light to such a model.
