With a power-to-weight ratio of 3.6 kg/hp, the TT ultra quattro concept sprints to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.2 seconds (1.3s faster) and is capable of reaching a top speed of 173.98 mph (280 km/h).
Various weight-saving measures were implemented, such as R8 GT-sourced bucket seats, CFRP rear-end, roof, center tunnel and B-pillars, along with magnesium floor and hinge reinforcements. The functional wing is manufactured from visible carbon and its base has been made as a supporting component from milled aluminum.
