Audi TT-S

Audi TT-S

  The Audi TT-S was introduced at the 2008 NAIAS in Detroit as a sport tuned version of the TT compact sports coupe. The TT-S wears a set of specific split five spoke 19 inch alloy wheels and comes complete with performance enhancing Audi Magnetic Ride suspension. The standard 2.0 TFSI power plant has been upgraded to produce 265 HP and 260 lb-ft of torque which is good for a faster 0 to 60 MPH time of 5.4 seconds.

As we announced a few days ago, a group of scientists from Stanford University have created a robotic Audi TTS to race at Pikes Peak. Today Audi has revealed the official details on the car.

We are talking about a 2009 Audi TTS, powered by a 2.0L Turbocharged I4 DOHC engine that delivers 265 hp, and can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4,9 seconds, while top speed is limited to 155 mph.

The car is controlled via two independent systems: the initial controller development is being done on an XPC target using Matlab and Simulink which are the standard research tools from Stanford’s DDL. The final vehicle controls are being run on ruggedized custom built solutions running a Core2Duo CPU and Solaris operating system that is being developed in collaboration with Sun Microsystems.

Full details in the press release after the jump.

Anytime you’re stopping on a red light and you see an Audi TTS beside you with no driver in sight, then consider yourself one of the lucky few to have seen the robotic Audi TTS that was developed by a group of scientists from Stanford University.

We all know that Stanford has had a long history of producing robotic cars but their latest pet project is far and away the most ambitious undertaking they’ve ever done. To be clear, the robotic Audi TT Audi TT S is far more than just your run-off-the-mill robot vehicle – if you can even get away saying something like that. The folks from Stanford who created the technological marvel have plans on entering their autonomous ride to the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, a rigorous twenty-kilometer race for a car-driven driver, let alone a driverless vehicle. Ambitious as the challenge may be, the robotic Audi TTS clearly has something going for it, not the least of which is posting an ‘unofficial’ speed record for an autonomous car after posting speeds in excess of 130 mph.

We all keep talking about the future of vehicles, but advancements regarding automated driving have never reached this stage so you can bet your bottom dollar that this will not be the last time we hear from those folks from Stanford.

If you’re wondering how did the tuner obtain these kind of performances, you have to know that a special turbo loader was installed, together with a new sport exhaust system and high performance sports catalyst but also with the help of some ECU tweaking. In order to keep the oil temperature at a constant temperature, B&B offers a special oil cooling system, which meets the tuned engine’s requirements perfectly.

The Audi TTS , launched in Detroit in January, will be coming to U.S. dealer showrooms in late 2008. Under its hood lies a two-liter TFSI high-performance engine delivering a mighty 265 hp in the U.S.. This intense power propels the TTS Coupe to 60 mph from a standstill in just 4.9 seconds and on to a governor-limited top speed of 155 mph. The Audi TTS is available as both a 2 + 2-seater coupe and as a roadster.

TTS will compete with BMW Z4 3.0si, Mercedes-Benz SLK350, Porsche Cayman and Porsche Boxster.

The TFSI engine in the TTS takes the two Audi technologies of gasoline direct injection and turbocharging and blends them to form a perfect partnership. Aside from its output of 265 hp in the U.S., it is its peak torque of 258 lb-ft, which is constantly on tap between 2,500 and 5,000 rpm, that makes the compact and lightweight four-cylinder unit so impressive.

2009 Audi TTS will be launched in USA at end of 2008

Compared to the engine it was derived from, the two-liter power unit has been reengineered and strengthened in a number of key areas to ready it for operation in the TTS.

S tronic, which deploys two clutches, is capable of performing extremely quick gear shifts at high engine loads and rev speeds; consequently, the time taken to sprint from zero to 60 mph is cut by a further two-tenths of a second in both the Coupe and Roadster.

Audi announced that the latest TT-S will be the official safety car
at the famous Tourist Trophy motorcycle races next month on the Isle of Man.
