Audi TT Clubsport Quattro: the full lowdown

Inspired by the Porsche 356, Audi has lopped the top off its TT Roadster to make this speedster version of its two-seater. The TT Clubsport Quattro, unveiled today in Austria, is a concept car to show how far the TT brand can be stretched, but officials freely admit that they are considering a limited production run. It's a TT like no other, squashed and squat, flattened to create a low-slung sports car for those living in dry climates where the occasional rain storm isn't a worry. There's no roof on this speedster at all - slightly at odds with the apparent motorsport roots of this one-off.

The hood is dispensed with altogether, along with the A-pillar, leaving just a tinted, wraparound windscreen. The rollover bars are lower than in the TT Roadster, nestling the same height as the sports bucket seats. Audi has also played around with the single-frame grille; new aluminium inserts emphasise the width and Ingolstadt's four interlocked rings have been switched up to the bonnet. Day-running lights are standard, the mirrors are shrunken items on stalks and you won't spot any door handles, because there aren't any; the doors open by remote, apparently.
