Audi TT

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.

Pure sportiness and powerful performance, combined with sensational efficiency: the Audi TT Coupé 2.0 TDI quattro and the Audi TT Roadster 2.0 TDI quattro are Audi’s proof that performance and economy can be combined together.

The two-liter engine generates dynamic propulsion with 170 hp and 258.15 lbs-ft of torque, yet the TT Coupe and TT Roadster consume an average of only 5.3 liters and 5.5 liters of fuel per 100 km (44.38 mpg and 42.77 mpg) respectively—unparalleled in the sports car segment.

The TT Coupe quattro with the 2.0 TDI sprints from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 7.5 seconds and achieves a top speed of 226 km/h (140.43 mph).

The Audi TT Roadster, likewise equipped with quattro permanent all-wheel drive, requires only an extra tenth of a second for the standard sprint, and continues up to a top speed of 223 km/h (138.57 mph). Both versions serve as outstanding examples of the success of the Audi efficiency strategy, thanks to their fuel efficiency ratings of 5.5 liters per 100 km (42.77 mpg), a figure that corresponds to CO2 emissions of only 145 grams/km.

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.

The most powerful version of the sporty TT is ready to be launched. The TT-RS will make its official debut this autumn at the Paris Auto Show. This latest spy shots were taken at the Nurburgring, where the latest version of the TT-RS was making the final testings.

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.

After just last week we brought you the first spy shots of the production version TT clubsport quattro, Audi today unveiled a new concept that gets us a step closer to the production version of the TT Clubsport Quattro. The Audi TT clubsport quattro is a purist driving machine combining the performance of a sports car with the unique design language of Audi. Small-series production of this model cannot be ruled out.

The TT clubsport quattro is powered by a 2.0 turbocharged four-cylinder TFSI engine that delivers 300 hp.

The front end is dominated by the powerful single-frame grill painted in high-gloss black. Beneath the headlamps, which feature a strip of LED daytime running lights, are large air inlets covered by horizontally split black grills.

A distinctive spoiler lip optimizes downforce. When viewed from the side, the sharp contours in the sill area are every bit as striking as the boldly accentuated wheel wells, which house impressive (polished) 9x19 inch wheels shod with 255/35 tires. The track was widened by 66 millimeters (2.60 inches) versus the production TT. The rear bumper is designed as a diffuser. The fascia between the two large tailpipes of the stainless steel exhaust system emphasizes the horizontal lines and makes the car look even wider from behind.

Typical for Audi is the generous use of aluminum in the interior of the showcar. The clubsport quattro sports a high-grip version of the flat-bottomed steering wheel from the production TT with aluminum shift paddles. The door pull handle and door opener are also made of aluminum, and their cut-out appearance emphasizes the lightweight design character of the concept car. The pedals also shine with aluminum.

The second distinctive feature of the interior of the TT clubsport quattro is the color orange. Leather in this color provides bright highlights to the arm rests, the sides of the center tunnel, the backs of the bucket seats and the instrument cowl. The orange and white graphics of the instrument cluster clearly distinguishes it from its counterpart in the production model.

Audi unveiled the TT Clubsport quattro Concept last year at the Essen’s Wörthersee tuner show and no one expected back then the car to ever enter production. But this latest spy shots prove the contrary: the production version of the TT Clubsport quattro was caught testing outside one of the carmaker’s offices in Germany.

The new speedster is yet to be announced by Audi but it is expected to be a limited edition model with the only powertrain option being a 300hp turbocharged 2.0L TFSI – the same unit as the concept car. Audi’s S tronic dual-clutch transmission will likely handle shifting duties, while carbon-ceramic brakes may be an option. As this latest prototype looks almost production ready we could see the new car launched by the end of the year but as mentioned Audi is yet to even confirm its existence.
