The bodywork is a mixture of carbon fiber, aluminum, and glass. It adds about 5.5 inches of width to the car along with a capability for an additional 1500 pounds of downforce. Wide and super lightweight magnesium wheels fill out the new fenders.
The car also does not retain the all wheel drive system, it's front wheel drive. This is likely partially due to weight but also because at this power level the all wheel drive is not necessary. It's simply faster as a race car this way. It is the only front wheel drive car to secure a pole and podium spot during a VLN series race.
Pretty awesome work by 034 Motorsport who could uncork a lot more power from that motor if they wanted to. As is, this is one badass Audi TT which it certainly better be for an estimated $250,000 worth of work.
