The track-spec Audi TT quattro sport concept makes its world debut alongside the production TT Coupe at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The TT quattro sport concept picks up after the performance-tuned TTS and takes it steps further into the racing circuit, featuring an even more powerful four-cylinder TFSI engine.

"With our Audi TT quattro sport concept show car, we wanted to demonstrate what the new TT's technology can do if you take it a step further. This car is designed for racing - an extreme driving machine for the motorsports enthusiasts among our customers," said Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Board Member for Technical Development.  

The sport concept essentially shares the same similar front fascia as the standard TT with the center section of finished with a black diamond pattern design for a more aggressive sporting character. The rear features a wide carbon fiber air diffuser.
