Although we know that Audi’s next-generation TT will be underpinned by the versatile MQB platform, concrete evidence of the actual design remains elusive. The latest hints, however, point to a more aggressive look inspired by the likes of the quattro concept.
Audi enthusiasts website Fourtitude has developed a number of renderings on the back of design head Wolfgang Egger’s recent assertion that the firm’s future design direction will see a greater visual distinction between models as hinted at with the recent reveal of the Audi Crosslane Coupe concept.
The suggestion is that, with the new TT, Audi is looking to reintroduce the wow-factor of the very first iteration. To this end, Fourtitude’s renderings take in more aggressive lines and a number of frontal and flank design cues lifted from the eye-catching quattro concept.
Wolfgang Dürheimer, Audi’s head of research and development, has also suggested that the TT’s more aggressive design could potentially be the catalyst for a high performance TT model tipping the scales at around 1 000 kg, possibly utilising carbon fibre elements and a powerful five-cylinder petrol engine.
Although these ideas are still some way from being confirmed, it’s still exciting to see that the next-generation TT has the potential to look more purposeful and create some mouth-watering spinoffs.
