The car is equipped with a 340-hp TFSI engine, an S-tronic transmission with a differential lock, a modified production suspension with adjustable dampers, and 18-in. alloy wheels.

The hood, doors, and truck lid are made of carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP). The front and rear aprons and the rear wing are sourced from the production Audi TT RS (this is as close as we’ve come).

According to Audi, the vehicle is engineered as being for “affordable motorsport,” with an estimated price of €120,000, which is about $157,000. Of course, if you needed the currency conversion, you probably can’t afford one.
