The Audi TT is a compact sports coupe from the German automaker that was first introduced in 1998 with a 1.8T power plant before receiving a 3.2 Liter V6 making 250 HP and was refreshed back in 2007. Since then Audi has upgraded every member of the TT line to use their Quattro all wheel drive system as well as a few diesel burning mills to go along with the new 250 HP 2.0 Liter TFSI motor and is able to go from 0 to 60 MPH in only 5.9 seconds.
Audi unveiled the TT Clubsport quattro Concept last year at the Essen’s Wörthersee tuner show and no one expected back then the car to ever enter production. But this latest spy shots prove the contrary: the production version of the TT Clubsport quattro was caught testing outside one of the carmaker’s offices in Germany.
The new speedster is yet to be announced by Audi but it is expected to be a limited edition model with the only powertrain option being a 300hp turbocharged 2.0L TFSI – the same unit as the concept car. Audi’s S tronic dual-clutch transmission will likely handle shifting duties, while carbon-ceramic brakes may be an option. As this latest prototype looks almost production ready we could see the new car launched by the end of the year but as mentioned Audi is yet to even confirm its existence.
OSIR Design is a well-know tuning company among Vw and Audi owners due to the high quality of their Carbon fiber accesories. The tuning company developed a new body kit for the Audi TT which consists in a new front grill in order to make the car look even better, a carbon fiber front lip, a new set of side skirts, a carbon rear valence available for the dual exhaust system. Already planned are the Carbon fiber add-on mirrors as well as a Carbon fiber hoof. More pictures after the jump!
Audi is expanding the TT line with a new entry-level engine: the 1.8 TFSI. This highly efficient four-cylinder engine with turbocharger and direct injection, with 160 hp and 184.39 lb-ft torque, lends the TT Coupé and TT Roadster sporty performance. A second innovation rounds out the program: The 2.0 TFSI now is also available with quattro all-wheel drive.
With its 1,798 cc of volumetric displacement, the 1.8 TFSI is able to achieve power similar to that of a naturally aspirated V6 of years past: With engine output of 160 hp, it features peak torque of 184.39 lb-ft available between 1,500 to 4,500 rpm. The undersquare engine meanwhile offers great fuel efficiency – with the Coupé using just 6.7 liters per 100 kilometers (35.11 mpg) and the Roadster using 6.9 liters per 100 km (34.09 mpg).
The 1.8 TFSI, whose torque flows to the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission, offers responsive, light-footed, high-revving and powerful performance. It propels the Audi TT Coupé to 62.14 mph in just 7.2 seconds, and on up to a top speed of 140.43 mph; for the Audi TT Roadster these figures are 7.4 seconds and 138.57 mph.
Audi launched the TT Coupe 2.0 TDI quattro and TT Roadster 2.0 TDI quattro - the first series-production sports cars in the world to be powered by diesel engines.
The new two-liter, four-cylinder engine delivers dynamic thrust, with a power output of 170 hp and 258.15 lb-ft of torque.
The TT Coupe quattro with the 2.0 TDI sprints from zero to 62.14 mph in only 7.5 seconds and achieves a top speed of 140.43 mph. The Audi TT Roadster, likewise featuring quattro permanent all‑wheel drive, takes just two-tenths of a second longer in the standard sprint discipline and has a top speed of 138.57 mph.
The Coupe consumes on average just 5.3 liters of fuel over 100 km (44.38 mpg), representing CO2 emissions of only 139 grams/km; the figure for the Roadster is 5.5 l/100 km (144 grams of CO2/km).
The car you see in the photos was at the begining a stock 2008 Audi TT powered by a 3.2-liter V6 engine capable of delivering 250 hp. HPA decided to customize this vehicle and added a twin turbo, a dual air-to-air side-mounted intercoolers and a high-flow fuel-supply system. The result was an outstanding 565 hp and some outrageous performances: 0-100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds and a top speed close to 320 km/h.
The tuning company choosed to equip the car with a performance clutch and a reprogrammed mechatronic upping the launch control revs from 3000 rpm to around 5000 rpm. In order to make the car more special, HPA Motorsports added a custom Lamborghini Gallardo orange paint found also on the 19-inch Moda MD3 wheels wearing Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT tyres. If you decided already to buy this car you have to know that the customization programme is available $60,000 and the price includes also the LSD Lambo doors.
Is not that the TT or the R8 are not sportier enough already, but Audi thought there might be people that want more! Audi’s Quattro GmbH development chief Stefan Reil dropped a hint that intensified, lightweight versions of the R8 supercar and TT sports car are under serious consideration.
With the R8 Sport, Audi will probably take a similar approach to performance as it did with the 2005 TT Quattro Sport, built in limited numbers during the last several months of the previous generation’s production run, although it never made it Stateside. That car featured a slight increase in horsepower for its turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a tauter suspension calibration, Recaro seats and a slight reduction in weight, primarily due to the removal of the rear seats/parcel shelf and the spare tire.
This means that the R8 Sport will have an output around 500 hp. It will also feature carbon ceramic brakes, the aerodynamic drag and the top speed will be increased.
Both R8 Sport and TT Sport will debut sometime in 2010.

Audi will add a new version to its TT line-up at the 2008 AMI in Leipzig from April 5-13. The new version, the 1.8 TFSI will arrive at the dealerships in early summer.
The 160 hp Audi TT 1.8 TFSI will be available as a coupe or a roadster. The coupe speeds from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in just 7.2 seconds, with average fuel consumption of just 6.7 liters per 100 km (35.11 mpg).
Audi added a new version to the TT line-up: the TT 2.0 TFSI quattro,a model powered by a TFSI four-cylinder version that draws its power from a displacement of 1,984 cc. The new version will go on sale in April.
The four-cylinder engine responds spontaneously to the throttle and is ultra-refined. It transmits 280 Nm (206.52 lb-ft) of torque to the crankshaft at just 1,800 rpm, and is able to keep this pulling power constant all the way up to 5,000 rpm. The nominal power output of 147 kW (200 hp) is delivered between 5,100 and 6,000 rpm. With a top speed of 238 km/h (Roadster 235 km/h), the Coupé can sprint from 0 auf 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds, while the Roadster requires just two-tenths of a second more.
MotorPasion put their hands on the first official images of the Audi TTS, that will be unveil in just a few days at the Detroit Auto Show. It will be offered in both coupe and roadster versions, and we might add both look amazing!
