As a result of extensive wind tunnel tests, the Abt specialists from Kempten have established an aerodynamic kit which results into more downforce and therefore, a better road-holding with the TT Wide Body. At the Nurburgring, Laurent Aiello has scored two brilliant victories for the Team Abt Sportsline with the Hasseroder-yellow Abt-Audi TT-R. This TT Wide Body not only shares the front spoilers and the extended fenders with the race car, but also the side skirts, a rear wing and a complicated diffuser, which gives downforce at the rear. Several carbonfibre parts also add to the feeling.

The technicians that built the limited wide body have also used racing experience while conceiving the suspension. Christian Abt himself has taken care of the set-up. The professional racing driver opted for Abt wheels of the type A27. ContiSportContact tyres with 235/35 size have been mounted on the front wheels, 275/30 tyres on the rear wheels.

For the road the ride height of the Abt TT is lowered by 1.6 in (40 mm) compared to the standard model. The Abt sports team put a lot of racing knowledge into the TT: a sport suspension with stronger anti-roll bars, sports brakes, a safety bar made of polished aluminium, and a single windscreen wiper .

310 bhp (228 kW) is the result of a power boost that turns the standard 225 hp (165 kW) engine into a racing machine. An Abt turbocharger with intercooler and exhaust system allow the standard power plant to breathe freely. A four-pipe exhaust system made of stainless steel with metal catalytic converters not only improves the appearance of the rear, but contributes to the fascinating sound of the Abt engine. With a top speed of approx. 254 kph and an acceleration from 0-100 kph in approx. 5.6 seconds, the statistics speak for themselves

Looks pretty cool to me. I used to think that the TT just looked like a VW bug that someone stepped on but this one has a lot more testosterone in in.

Abt Sportsline: Custom quattro TT (based on Audi quattro TT) news

http://www.leftlanenews.com/2006/09/...55-horsepower/
Abt Sportsline has announced a new tuning program for the Audi TT with three engine variants: TT-R, TT-Sport, and TT-iS. The range-topping TT-R puts out 355 horsepower and will hit 62 mph in 5.1 seconds. The TT-Sport has a more modest 270 horsepower, and the 240 hp TT-iS strikes a balance between fuel economy and performance thanks to a high-tech engine management system. The front and rear fascias get new intakes, and side skirts complete the sporty look. A rear wing that replaces the TT's pop-up spoiler and 19" wheels complete the package. Images after the jump…

I think it's just the rims and the fogs on the bottom inlets that makes it look that way. change those and I think we have a winner.

I like the rims. I agree, it's the fog and the bottom inlets, not to mention the skid plates in the rear.

I like the new TT, but the back is just too diminutive. The car just looks too front-heavy. It needs a bigger butt!

Press release...

With the Abt TT-R Abt Sportsline celebrated the most amazing motor sport victories in the season 2002. Hardly anyone was able to beat the Abt TT-R. In nine of the ten DTM races at least one of the Abt pilots clinched a podium position, and at the end Laurent Aiello won the DTM championship in the yellow Abt TT-R. Therefore it is no wonder that the Abt team from Kempten has a special relationship with “their” TT and it is a fortunate coincidence that the second version of this sporty Audi model just appears on the market when the family enterprise celebrates its 110th company anniversary. At the same time, this happenstance means a challenge for Abt Sportsline - a challenge the team from Kempten meets by enhancing this exceptional sports car.

The new Audi TT is a model which already combines clarity and form with modern technology in the serial car and therefore offers maximum driving pleasure. “This is the best precondition we can imagine to perfect a car,” explains Hans-Jürgen Abt, managing director of Abt Sportsline - and presents convincing data:

The masterpiece in the new Abt TT model range is the Abt TT-R equipped with a VR6 3.2 ltr. engine and a performance of 355 HP (262 kW). This outstanding sports car offers real racing adventure for the roads. The Abt TT-R accelerates from standstill to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds compared to the serial model that takes 5.9 seconds.

In connection with the Abt TT-Sport models, the Bavarian team has also noticeably boosted the power of the VR6 3.2 ltr. engines . The Abt supercharger kit and modifications of the motor management ensure that the 3.2 ltr. 6-cylinder engine now performs 310 HP (228 kW) instead of the serial 250 HP (184 kW).

Post 2007 Abt Sportsline Audi TT-Sport




Press release...

In connection with the Abt TT-Sport models, the Bavarian team has also noticeably boosted the power of the 2.0 T-FSI engines. They upgraded the serial power of 200 HP (147 kW) to 270 HP (199 kW) with a maximum torque of 350 Nm (serial 280 Nm).

For the new 2-litre TT Abt also offers its innovative intelligentSport-technology. Specific modifications of the motor management allow the Abt TT-iS to be fuelled with standard, super or superplus gasoline. The performance increases to as much as 240 HP (177 kW) depending on the fuel quality. More power – less thirst. With an additional Abt gearbox modification the fuel consumption of the Abt TT-iS can be reduced by up to four litres.

Besides the power boost, the modified design of the Abt TT models was one of the most important factors. In this connection Abt Sportsline has developed special body styling parts that make the TT a real eye-catcher communicating power and dynamics. With an integrated grille element, the front skirt emphasizes the area around the fog lights and single-frame grille so that the face of the Abt TT becomes even more aggressive and marked. The lateral body styling parts continue the dynamical body language and lead directly to the extravagant rear with rear skirt inset and rear wing. In contrast to the filigree serial part the Abt rear wing cannot be folded but is a part that is firmly integrated into hatchback. The result is not only a racier design; it also brings about more downforce. The 4-pipe rear muffler is the finishing touch that perfectly harmonizes with the black rear skirt inset and rear diffuser. To round off the striking overall optical design, Abt Sportsline recommends the 19-inch wheels AR19 and SP1 with tyres sized 255/35 ZR 19.

What is more, Abt has also included a special suspension kit and suspension springs in its product range so as to meet the demands of the power upgrade and modified design.

The new Abt TT with its extraordinary driving performance and body styling has everything a winner needs.
