The concept – currently on the Audi stand at the Detroit Motor Show – gives a few clues as to how the next generation Audi TT could look, or it may preview a totally new vehicle to arrive in the future.
On the outside the styling is a mix of rugged and super-stylish – and of course there’s some shooting brake cues as well.
Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, member of the board of Audi AG, technical development, said: ‘The show car combines sex appeal, highly efficient e-tron-quattro technology that produces 300 kW of power yet only consumes 1.9 l/100 km of fuel (equating to 149 UK mpg) and cutting-edge electronic applications.
‘We are offering very concrete glimpses of the near future in this show car.’
The car is powered by a 2.0-litre TFSI engine and twin electric motors, the hybrid machine produces an impressive 402bhp when both power sources are called upon. Top speed will likely be limited to 155mph but the 0-60mph dash could take as little as 4.5 seconds.
