Audi working on TT GT4, but not just yet
Audi Sport is evaluating producing a GT4 version of its successful TT racer.
The Ingolstadt brand already runs the singlemake TT Cup series in support of the DTM German touring car series. The TT Cup operates for productionspec versions of the two-litre 310bhp TT RS.
Audi has this year announced its new 2.5-litre turbocharged 395bhp TT RS Coupe model for the road, and rumours have persisted that Audi Sport has begun evaluation work on making the car its new GT4 platform.
While Audi is a major producer of GT3 machinery – it last week rolled its 200th new-generation R8 LMS GT3 off the production line – has never produced a GT4 car.
Audi Sport’s Chris Reinke told Daily Sports Car that the TT was being looked at for a new customer car, but played down talk it would be imminent.
“The green light for a GT4 car is a little way off – we have done some evaluation work, but it is not the car I expect us to offer as our next customer racing option, that’s more likely to be a Tcr-spec car,” said Reinke.
TT Cup car will likely form basis of a GT4 car in the future
