The concept, which features a newly developed 2.5-litre five-cylinder petrol engine and two electrically driven turbochargers, gets aggressive styling and a total power output of 592bhp.
The transversely mounted powerplant is claimed to propel the latest in a long line of TT show cars from 0-62mph in just 3.6sec and on to a claimed top speed of 193mph.
The heavily reworked TT Coupé is described by Audi’s head of research and development, Ulrich Hackenberg, as a technology concept created to provide a glimpse into the sort of features we can expect to see appear on future models from the German car maker.
“Electric turbocharging signifies a new dimension," he said. "We are close to production readiness with this technology with our diesel engines. Now we are presenting it with a petrol engine, too. We are the first car maker to do this.”
