After last week’s official unveiling, the 2015 Audi TTS Roadster finally dropped its top in the French capital with the occasion of the 2014 Paris Motor Show. The new vehicle arrives with a 2.0-liter TFSI petrol engine that generates 310 hp (228 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque. As a result, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds, while top speed is 250 km/h or 155 mph.

The engine is offered as standard with a manual six-speed transmission, but as an option Audi offers the six-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission. Power is delivered to the road via the 18-inch wheels wrapped in 245/40 tyres and the Quattro permanent all-wheel drive.

Just like its predecessor, the TTS Roadster arrives with a fabric top that features parts made out of magnesium, aluminum, steel as well as plastic and has a total weight of 39 kg (86 lb). The design is not so new as we already seen the TTS Coupe earlier this year.

Inside, the vehicle arrives with the next-generation digital instrument cluster that consists of a 12.3-inch display that offers a very interesting infotainment mode that focuses on theme such as the navigation map.

There are no details regarding the price yet, but we do know that the 2015 Audi TT Roadster starts at 37,900 in Germany, which means that the new TTS Roadster will be a little bit more expensive.
