Audi TT

  The Audi TT is a compact sports coupe from the German automaker that was first introduced in 1998 with a 1.8T power plant before receiving a 3.2 Liter V6 making 250 HP and was refreshed back in 2007. Since then Audi has upgraded every member of the TT line to use their Quattro all wheel drive system as well as a few diesel burning mills to go along with the new 250 HP 2.0 Liter TFSI motor and is able to go from 0 to 60 MPH in only 5.9 seconds.

Audi has prepared three of their signature models: the A3, TT and R8 with one of the greatest navigation system available at the moment. The new Audi navigation system plus with MMI is being priced between 2,270 and 2,565 Euros; that is depending on which model you choose.

The heart of the unit is the 800 x 480 pixel, high-resolution 6.5 inch screen. Route calculation is now blazingly fast thanks to a latest-generation processor clocked at 600 MHz. In addition to the recommended path, the split-screen display now also shows speed limits taken from the navigation data for freeways and highways. In topographic map view, the driver and front passenger can scroll vertically, horizontally and now also along the route as they wish.

Audi’s R8 super car is a dream: razor sharp bodywork, over 400 horse power behind your head and a set of eye catching rims. Unfortunately, that kind of superior automotive status comes at a sizable cost. That is why the German tuning firm Prior Design have come up with a very aggressive R8 inspired aero kit for the last generation Audi TT, bringing super car fashion to the masses.

Up front the TT wears a new front bumper complete with horizontal carbon fiber blades stretching across the oversized intakes. The rear bumper is equally as speed inspired, they are tied together nicely by the new side skirts and the TT’s already wide fender bulges. The tuner kept everything unchanged under the hood, the 3.2 Liter V6 making 250 HP being sent through Quattro, Audi’s proven four wheel drive system.

So if the Audi R8 is your dream car, but for whatever reason isn’t in your garage, the Prior Design TT is not a bad substitute. By combining the looks of Audi’s halo car, the R8 with a solid German engineered power train, Prior Design made a good car into something special.

Audi seems to be the preferred canvas to show off car art. While these cars from the Essen Motor Show aren’t quite as unique or brilliant as the Romero Britto A4 , these are some custom paint jobs most enthusiasts wouldn’t mind having in their garage.

Sales will begin in the summer of 2009.

Audi announced today that year-to-date car sales of its sedan and sports car models for 2008 rose to a total of 30,767, a 7.5% increase over last year’s figures. Audi claimed a growing share of the luxury auto market, 6.8% in May, thanks to strong sales of the A4 , A4 Cabriolet and TT models , with robust sales in key markets.

With growth throughout the year, Audi car sales contrast sharply with weaker sales among other luxury automakers weighed down by economic volatility and rising fuel costs. While German luxury automakers BMW BMW and Mercedes Mercedes -Benz posted year-to-date declines or only nominal (less than 1%) growth, respectively, in passenger car sales, Audi car sales into early summer grew consistently over the corresponding five months in 2007. Audi’s strong showing in May earned it its highest share of the luxury auto market so far this year.

“In a tough market, luxury buyers are retreating from legacy prestige and putting increased value on style, performance and fuel economy — progressive elements that define Audi’s ‘new luxury,’” said Johan de Nysschen, executive vice president, Audi of America.
