Handling

Audi TT ultra Quattro Concept makes use of a simpler and a lighter suspension system-unit. This shaves off some weight from the current set-up improving comfort and handling. The coil springs which were traditionally made from steel have been replaced now with fiberglass reinforced plastic. This shaves of 40% of their bulk and still maintaining the overall usefulness.

Lightweight

The engine modifications to the crankshaft, the crankcase, the balancer shafts, the oil sump and bolts have been made lighter by 25 kilograms (55 pounds).

The spokes are made of high-strength aluminum bolted to the wheel directly. This reduces weight by 20 kilograms (44 lbs).

This simply shows Audi's goal that the car was designed to reduce its weight, enhancing performance. The Audi TT ultra Quattro Concept is comfortable and simple.
