Audi‘s TT model has been central to the brand’s primary mid-range sports-car offerings for the past decade and a half. Now, for the Beijing Motor Show, the German automotive powerhouse has flipped the TT into a new offroad concept, featuring a hybrid engine that puts out 408 horsepower. A more and more common occurrence for all-wheel drive hybrids, the concept TT splits the propulsion between a front-located 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder combined with a 40-kilowatt electric motor, and for the rear axle an 85-kilowatt electric motor. The contours of the cabin resemble Audi’s Q3 model, yet the offroad TT possesses a lower profile with larger 21-inch wheels and a redesigned bumper. While the concept shows a road-ready exterior that might look out of place amongst other more experimental concepts, Audi has no plans to put this new ideation into production, but these new images do hint at how a more rugged TT model could be introduced.
