Audi TT Moving Closer to R8

cr 466d42d8790a9c39982bf46f566eb67b Audi Tt Next GenerationThe next TT will include the MQB Modular-Transversal architecture.  Audi is looking to its first generation car for its next generation.  It is anticipated that it will have a shorter front overhang and a longer wheelbase relative in relation to the car’s overall profile.  The overall footprint or vehicle size will remain relatively unchanged.

The TT's interior is flawless leaving no history to its VW Golf lineage.  A crafted interior is modern with a bit of flair with its faux suede and leather upholstery.  10 way power seats and navigation system bring the TT to full functionality.

The Audi was one of the pristine cars arriving in the late 90's with its dramatic front and rear profiles.  The Audi TT name is generated from a successful motor racing tradition of NSU Motorenwerke AG which later merged into the Audi Brand.  Both Technology and Tradition have been connected with the TT signature.

The TT was named after the Tourist Tropy race which is held on the British Isle of Man (Motorcycle Race).  The front or all wheel drive is a 2 seat tourer not fully fitting into a sports car or sport coupe or roadster classification.  Its heavy curb weight and soft suspension prevented the full sporty feel and perception.  There are sporty TTS and RS variants, however, if that is your cup of tea.

The TT is all about unique style and relaxing ride.  The optional magnetic ride suspension and all weather traction give the TT some additional offerings.

Rumor: Audi is Working on Next-Gen of TT-RS

Audi TT-RS White

Dear Audi, can we get the Audi TT-RS more power, please? Sincerely, Audi Fans. That is probably what most Audi fans will write when they are asking what they want from their TT-RS sportscar. The story is pretty funny as the idea why Audi created the TT-R is because the fans think that the TT-S is not fast enough. Audi grant the wishes by giving the TT-RS with full power, and yet, it still not enough as many of them are turning to aftermarket and tuning developers to satisfy the quench for more speed.

After profound thoughts and camp-fire with the engineers at R&D department, Audi decided to work on the more powerful version of TT-RS sportscar. As we quoted from autoevolution.com, the Audi TT-RS could be ready by next year. We don’t think that the reason why Audi scheduled the new TT-RS for next year is because the fans want more power. The reason is more like they are going to be massive launching of sportscars next year and it would incomplete if we don’t see Audi tag along, don’t you think?

The engine for the new Audi TT-RS could be in the form of turbocharged 2.5L inline 5-cylinder which has been upgraded to be able to deliver 385 horsepower. Just so you know, the current TT-RS sportscar carries 340 horsepower under its hood. So, how in the world Audi can give those additional horsepower?

We bet that Audi will not only give the new TT-RS sportscar new ECU map. Rumor has it that Audi much likely will be taking off the rear seats and gives new lightweight alloy rims. More power means the Audi TT-RS has to shed some weight and the German automaker could be cutting down the weight of the sportscar up to 60 kg. One more thing, the TT-RS could be carrying a fixed rear wing.

Rumor: An Entry-Level for Audi TT?

 2011 Audi TT

Can you imagine that the Audi TT will be having its entry-level segment or in our term affordable car? No need to imagining as the UK division of Audi has officially announced the new model year for the TT will be offering an affordable version that is powered by 1.8L turbocharged TFSI petrol engine in the form of coupe. Wait… an affordable TT model in coupe version? That is one bold step makes by Audi, don’t you think? So, how affordable will be the TT coupe?

The Audi TT coupe might cost around £24,070 and with that amount of money, you can get power output around 160 horsepower. Not bad, right? Especially if you remember that the engine is already equips with turbocharged. The customers have the privilege to choose between the 6-speed manual transmission as standard option or the double-clutch S-Tronic transmission as the optional feature. There will be two models of the TT coupe namely the Sport and S line.

Taking the manual transmission Audi TT for sprint and you will hit 0 to 62 mph in 7.2 seconds with top speed reaches at 140 mph (225 km/h). As for the S-Tronic model, going 0 to 62 mph can be completed in 7.1 seconds and giving the same top speed. One thing we almost forget to tell you, the manual transmission and S-Tronic model are in FWD a.k.a the front-wheel-drive. You know what those figures remind us? A Volkswagen Golf. Could it be that the affordable TT coupe is the revised edition of VW Golf since the vehicle carries 211 horsepower and can reach the sprint at the exact same time?
