Audi TT Roadster Back in the Spotlight

Third Generation Audi TT Roadster

Once upon a time the Audi TT was just a shadow of its bigger bretheren. It was lost in the limelight of many other models. But all that has changed this year...

The auto world is now buzzing about this new technological masterpiece that our cherished four-ring brand just recently launched. The Audi TT Roadster and TTS Roadster will be on display for Paris show-goers with all eyes on the new virtual cockpit. This new display and control system has already received the Car Connectivity Award as well as the "Interior Innovation of the Year" award at the Automotive Interiors Expo Awards this year.

Highlights of the TT's new makeover include:
  • It is 21 millimeters (0.8 in) shorter and 10 millimeters (0.4 in) narrower than its predecessor, while the Singleframe grille is wide and flat with the four-ring emblem on the hood of the car similar to the Audi R8.
  • With parts made from magnesium, aluminum, steel and plastic, the soft top weighs just 39 kilograms (86.0 lb) and is 3 kilograms (6.6 lb) lighter than its predecessor.
  • The quattro permanent all-wheel drive has been fully redeveloped; it is optionally available in combination with the 2.0 TFSI engine in the TT Roadster and is fitted as standard on the TTS Roadster. 
  • The newly developed sport seats with integrated head restraints are mounted low. Together, they weigh five kilograms less than the seats in the predecessor.
  • 11 exterior colors will be available, with two that are completely new for Audi: nano gray and tango red.  Panther black, crystal effect, and that oh, so beautiful Sepang blue are also available for the TTS.
  • With the Audi phone box, the cell phone can be conveniently docked in the car and the seat belt microphone ensures excellent voice quality during calls even when the convertible top is open.

The new Audi TT roadster has much more muscular aerodynamics when compared to its predecessor.
