Audi unveils GT4 racer
Ditch that bottle of highlights and don your leather romper suit – this TT wants to go racing
Posted: 01 Dec 2010
Fancy yourself a budding Paul Meijer, Eric de Doncker or Joe Osbourne?
Thanks to the advent of the Internet and a 'Google', you can look up these names and realise they are all GT4 racers, a sort of amateur racing series where even the great unwashed (that's you lot) can enter.
And Audi wants you to enter it with this - the TT GT4. Unveiled in Shanghai, this customer racer features a 340bhp TFSI engine complete with an S-tronic transmission with locking differential, adjustable dampers and a full roll-cage. You also get plastic windows, while the bonnet, doors and boot lid are made of CFRP, and 18 inchers. There's also that natty motorsport body, to crush any lingering salon-based ambition you may have...
This GT4-spec TT can be yours for around 101,000 of our Great British pounds (€120,000). It won't eat your face, quite unlike it's DTM-spec bigger brother.
