The TTS comes standard with the Audi magnetic ride adaptive shock absorber technology, the Sport button, and a high-performance brake system. The car also gets new 18-inch wheels with size 245/40 tires and a new grille combined with chrome air inlets. A new color combination – spectral silver/black – is available for the interior.

Press release

The Audi TTS, both in Coupe and Roadster body styles, combine enthralling sportiness with cultivated comfort. Its two-liter TFSI with the large turbocharger and many additional modifications pumps out 200 kW (272 hp) and 350 Nm (258.15 lb-ft) of torque, the latter from 2,500 to 5,000 rpm. It accelerates the TTS Coupe with the optional S tronic from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 5.2 seconds, up to a governed top speed of 250 km/h (155.34 mph). With the S tronic, the Coupé consumes an average of only 7.7 liters of fuel per 100 km (30.55 US mpg).

The TTS comes standard with the Audi magnetic ride adaptive shock absorber technology, the Sport button and a high-performance brake system. Visual cues to its identity are provided by the 18-inch wheels with size 245/40 tires and a new grille combined with chrome air inlets. A new color combination – spectral silver/black – is available for the interior.

The dynamic spearhead of the TT model series is the TT RS, which is likewise available as a Coupe or a Roadster. Its turbocharged, inline 5-cylinder engine draws 250 kW (340 hp) of power from 2.5 liters of displacement. 450 Nm (331.90 lb-ft) of torque are available between 1,600 and 5,300 rpm. It nevertheless averages just 9.2 liters of fuel per 100 km (25.57 US mpg).

The TT RS Coupe rockets from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62.14 mph) in 4.6 seconds; quattro GmbH will raise the top speed from 250 to 280 km/h (155.34 to 173.98 mph) upon request. A sound flap in the exhaust system further intensifies the distinctive five-cylinder sound. A manual six-speed transmission with a sportily narrow gearing currently delivers the power to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive. Starting this fall, Audi will also offer the option of the TT RS with a newly developed version of the S tronic that can handle the tremendous torque of the powerful five-cylinder engine. The compact layout of the seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission makes it suitable for transverse mounting in combination with the quattro all-wheel drive system.

The TT RS Coupe with the S tronic launches itself from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.4 seconds. The TT RS Roadster requires 0.1 seconds more for this discipline – a bat of an eye less than with the manual transmission. Distinctive design details, 18-inch wheels and an extremely powerful brake system are standard with the TT RS.

The sport version of the Audi TT also gets a light refresh for 2011. Don’t look for upgrades in the power department, as the turbocharged and direct-injected 2.0-liter motor holds steady at 265 hp.

i guess they just changed them cause they use the vertical ones on the off road like q5 q7 and the all-road a4s and a6s

This really is the best iteration yet. Just shows how much you can tweak a basic design shape. It looks so much more refined as compared to the R8. Don’t get me wrong, I love the R8, but this is sexy where the R8 is brutish.

TTS has just been added of my list that I would always want to drive.

they don’t. the S3, S4, S5, S8 and R8 V10 all have vertical strips. it just so happens that the A4 and A6 all roads and Q5 do, and up until the face lift only the Q7 V12 TDI had vertical strips.

Looks good, though I wish they’d include a manual as an option. Still, a pretty sweet combo with AWD, more power, and good looks.

It looks pretty sharp to me! not my type of color, but life would be boring if we did not have choices in cars, color, body styles and such.

A whole new face-lift car, way better looking than the previous and turtle looking audi TT.

look like they share the same color of the bimmer m3, but the TT’s performance are only half as the m3.

Lovely, a whole new face of the audi. To be honest, I really hate the previous looks of the audi TT.

Although this car is not as good as Iron Man’s Audi, it is still a rocking car. I hope to see one in the streets soon and hope to even get a chance to test drive one.

This overpriced piece of junk does not compete with the SLK or the G37. The TT is a badge engineered and slightly facelifted VW new Beetle, nothing more.

It’s hard to believe that the current generation of the Audi TT Coupe and Roadster has been on sale since 2006 and during that time we’ve seen several different variants launched, here and overseas, including diesel and high-performance RS models.
