stupid fast II

I thought the 991 Turbo was a relative performance bargain, but Audi’s TT Quattro Sport Concept, aka the next TT-RS, puts the Turbo to shame. It exemplifies the recent trends in the industry with lightweight construction (sub 3,000 lbs) and turbo-fed power (210hp/liter for 420hp!!). Coupled with AWD and a dual-clutch transmission, this things is going to be insanely fast at only 1/3 the price of a 991 Turbo.

While it may seem like a high price for what is essentially a rebodied VW Golf, look at it this way, it has as much power as a 996 Turbo but weighs 600 lbs less. Impressive performance figures don’t necessarily translate to something that’s fun to drive, but they’re not a bad place to start.
