Every version of Audi TT and R8 sports car equipped by a new kit will get a screw suspension with two or three adjustments; the all-wheel-drive TT will be additionally supplied with a metal extension on the rear axle. The charged package also includes 20-inch forged wheels in black with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires for R8 and Pirelli P Zero Corsa for TT. Due to them, the carmakers could save the 7.2 kg weight on TT, TTS and TT RS, as for R8, it is up to eight kilograms.

The Germans also improved the brakes: both models have got better cooling, lightweight pads with a titanium body and friction pads. These changes were provided for models with standard brakes and carbon-ceramic ones.

Audi Sport Performance package proposes the inside changes too, which can be identified from a new steering wheel with a bevel rim and an alcantara finishing. The car can offer carbon-fiber understeering switches in the case if the customer needs the robotic transmission instead of the manual gearbox. Especially for Audi TT, the engineers have developed a composite spacer that replaces the rear sofa. In addition, this design increases the car’s body rigidity and reduces the curb weight by 20 kg.
