Audi TT Cup racecar looks stunning at Audi Forum Neckarsulm

The Audi TT Cup was the star of an exhibition a few days ago in Germany at Audi Forum Neckarsulm.

Now that the inaugural season of the TT Cup has ended, the racecar is taking a well-deserved rest and one such example was showcased in Ingolstadt along with several road-going models. Not only does it look very aggressive, but the new body is also very aerodynamically efficient and much lighter than the standard car. Through various weight-saving measures, Audi Motorsport’s engineers were able to lower the vehicle’s weight to 1,125 kg, so it should be significantly more nimble than the stock car.

Its heart and soul is a race-spec version of the TFSI 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 310 PS and in excess of 400 Nm. The hardware package also includes an electronically variable active differential and an S-tronic 6-speed gearbox while the headlights benefit from matrix LED technology. Developed specifically for overtaking, the push-to-pass function will squeeze an extra 30 PS from the engine.

The first season of the Audi TT Cup ended last weekend and Jan Kisiel took the win and received the trophy made by Audi’s apprentices in Neckarsulm and he also got €150,000 worth of parts for the R8 LMS.
