Audi will be offering a new opportunity to enter the company’s successful motorsport world with a dedicated racing series for the Audi TT. The Audi Sport TT Cup will be held as part of the DTM starting in the 2015 season. This means that, following the successful introduction of the Audi R8 LMS Cup in Asia, Audi is launching another one-make cup in Germany next year. The racing version of the new Audi TT with a weight of only 1,125 kilograms delivers 228 kW (310 hp). By means of a push-to-pass function, the output of the two-litre TFSI engine can be briefly boosted by 22 kW (30 hp).
“The Audi TT is an icon and continues to epitomise powerful sportiness and emotional design in what is now its third generation,” says Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Member of Audi’s Board of Management for Technical Development. “For me it was clear that a driving machine like the new Audi TT belongs on the race track as well. With the Audi Sport TT Cup we have found an exciting approach. The TT is going to thrill fans and drivers.”
