Quattro AWD now available for 2017 Audi TT TDI coupe and roadster

However, there is a twist to this. Audi’s all-wheel drive technology could only be fitted into a 2.0 TDI engine-powered 2017 TT coupe or roadster if the S tronic six-speed dual-clutch transmission is availed. The resulting variant would be the 2017 Audi TT 2.0 TDI quattro S tronic, which boasts of all-wheel drive agility and excellent diesel economy. Of course, the 2017 Audi TT Coupe 2.0 TDI with six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive (FWD) remains available to order.

Audi TT Clubsport Quattro Study

There is no mistaking the Audi TT shape and design. It is instantly recognisable to all. But has Audi trumped itself with the latest design study on the Clubsport Quattro? The intention behind the study is to design a purist version of the TT. Power is everything in this study.

It combines the latest technology with the most powerful of engines from the motorsports field. The development engineers’ intention was to design an elite, supreme TT, like nothing seen before. The hood and A-post have been removed and in their place is an all-encompassing low windscreen which is evocative of a speedster. The cockpit has a soft tinted window strip. The windscreen is panoramic and there are two ‘camel like’ humps behind the interior where the hood would otherwise be.

This further enhances the vehicle’s sports car image. The rollover bars have been flattened and are the same height as the sport seats. A single-frame grille with dramatic horizontal aluminium inserts, sits dominantly at the front of the vehicle. Unusually the four rings logo is positioned on the bonnet, whereas most Audi models have it mounted on the grille.

Audi brings the TT Clubsport Turbo Concept at Worthersee Tour 2015

At the Worthersee Tour 2015, Audi unveiled the TT Clubsport Turbo Concept, a vehicle that takes its inspiration from the legendary Audi 90 IMSA GTO of the late 1980s. According to the German manufacturer, the vehicle is powered by a 2.5-liter TFSI five-cylinder petrol engine that produces 600 hp (441 kW) and 650 Nm (479.4 lb-ft) of torque.

All that power is transferred via a manual six-speed transmission and the Quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, that can push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds, while top speed is 310 km/h (192.6 mph).

Thanks to the electrically driven compressor, the Audi TT Clubsport Turbo Concept is able to cover up to 16 meters (52.5 ft) within the first 2.5 seconds, 6 meters (19.7 ft) more than a comparable car without this innovation.

Back in April, Audi unveiled the TT Offroad Concept, but for the 2014 Paris Motor Show the German manufacturer brought another concept vehicle based on the TT, the TT Sportback. For those who don’t know, Audi confirmed the development of a third TT body style but we don’t know yet which would be the first concept car to enter the production.

The TT Offroad Concept is an interesting addition, but the TT Sportback Concept makes perfect sense and it would be a better choice for Audi in order to fight the Mercedes-Benz CLA. According to Audi, the TT Sportback Concept unites two concepts to form a new member for a potential TT family and invokes the design idiom of the classic TT.

The concept is powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI engine that produces 400 hp (294 kW) and is bolted to a seven-speed S tronic automatic transmission that delivers the power to the road via the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system.

Audi has just unveiled today the all-new 2015 TT Roadster and 2015 TTS Roadster models, but it appears that the German manufacturer has a big surprise for the 2014 Paris Motor Show: the TT Sportback Concept. Audi seems determined to build a third variant of the TT and if earlier this month we were sure that we will see a crossover version of the TT inspired by the TT Offroad Concept, we are not so sure anymore.

Why? Because a TT Sportback makes more sense as Mercedes-Benz sees some impressive sales for its CLA. A Sportback version of the TT would be a dynamic alternative to the Audi A3 Sedan as well as a better rival for the Mercedes-Benz CLA.

The TT Sportback Concept has a length of 4.47 meters, which means it is longer than the A3 Sedan, but also much wider.

Tazio Giorgio Nuvolari is a well-known Italian motorcycle racer and racecar driver, the one that Ferdinand Porsche called him “the greatest driver of the past, the present and the future”. Even after his death in 1953, the Italian driver is still remembered thanks to the Gran Premio Nuvolari, a well-known race for historic cars where Audi has been a sponsor for 17 years.

At this year’s event which starts tomorrow, the German manufacturer will also debut the Audi TT Nuvolari, a limited edition that pays homage to Tazio Giorgio Nuvolari. Limited to just 100 units, the TT Nuvolari Edition will be offered in a Daytona Grey exterior colour, 19-inch 5-spoke aluminum wheels and a ‘Nuvolari’ lettering above the side sills.

Open the door and you will see the ‘Nuvolari’ lettering on the door sills, a flat-bottomed steering wheel wrapped in leather, leather-wrapped sport seats, special floor mats and a numbered plaque located next to the start button that underlines the limited edition of the vehicle.

Audi has just introduced the third-generation TT Coupe and we will see the TT Roadster at the 2014 Paris Motor Show next month. Still, Audi’s development chief Ulrich Hackenberg revealed the fact that the German company is working on a new TT body style.

This is a clear hint that Audi is indeed working on a crossover version of the TT, previewed earlier this year at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show with the TT Offroad Concept.

This will probably be the most interesting addition in the TT lineup and will be built for customers who want vehicles with a higher riding position than the current coupes and roadsters. If you don’t remember, the Audi TT Offroad Concept was powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI petrol engine developing 292 hp (215 kW) and 380 Nm (280.3 lb-ft) of torque, but also by an electric motor that generates 40 kW and 220 Nm (262.3 lb-ft) of torque.

Back in March, Audi unveiled the 2015 TT, the third-generation of its well-known coupe. The 2015 Audi TT Coupe showed a new design dominated by the horizontal lines as well as by the singleframe grille. Moreover, the all-new TT comes with redesigned headlights that are offered with the Matrix LED technology but also new taillights.

Today, we decided to have a little chat with our source from Ingolstadt and we found out that the 2016 Audi TT Roadster will make it world debut in October, at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. The new TT Roadster will not come with a new design, as it will look almost the same as the coupe version.

In addition, the TT Roadster will feature the well-known roll-over bars with aluminum trim that provide increased safety for driver and front passenger as well as the fabric roof. Just like on the coupe, the TT Roadster will offer a choice of two engines, a 2.0-liter TDI diesel engine and a 2.0-liter TFSI petrol engine.

If you thought that the rumored TT crossover was just a joke, you’d better think again as Audi has just unveiled the TT Offroad Concept at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show a.k.a. Auto China 2014. The new concept car is 4.39 meters (16.2 ft) long, 1.85 meters (6.1 ft) wide and a wheelbase of 2.63 meters (8.6 ft). This means that it resembles the Audi Q3 compact SUV.

Showing a Sonora Yellow exterior, the TT Offroad Concept features clearly drawn lines and muscularly taut surfaces in order to produce a dramatic design. As you can see the vehicle actually follows the same design philosophy as the recently introduced 2015 Audi TT. The front end shows the Singleframe grille and stylish Matrix LED headlights.

When viewed from the side, the relationship between the concept and the Audi TT is even more apparent. At the rear, we can see the taillights inspired by those found on the TT as well as two round tailpipes connected through a blade with a Quattro logo. The interior offers enough space for up to four persons, who can take a seat on the slim sport seats with integrated head restrains.

Audi didn’t stop with the all-new TT and TTS but also unveiled the brand new TT Quattro Sport Concept at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. In our opinion, this new concept car actually previews the next-generation TT-RS.

As you can see from the photos, this new concept car comes with a new body kit consisting of a new front bumper with large air intakes, a big singleframe grille, a front end splitter made from carbon fiber, extended fenders (30 millimeters (1.18 in)), new side sill, a new rear air diffuser with integrated exhaust system featuring two big pipes and a new rear wing.

The design of the car is completed by the 20-inch wheels with a central locking mechanism and wrapped in semi-slick tires but also by the Crystal White paint finish. Inside, we find plenty of Alcantara, even the door handles are in fact a diagonal strip of Alcantara. Moreover, there are two low-set racing buckets featuring black four-point seat belts with white accentuating stripes.

At last, the 2015 Audi TT is official and the third-generation promises to be again captivating due to its emotional design and the dynamic qualities. As you can see the new TT is not a revolution in terms of design, as Audi returned to many of the lines used by the original version and placed them in a new context.

At the first model change in 2006, up to 90 kg (198.42 lb) were saved, and the 2.0 TFSI engine variant of the new TT weighs just 1,230 kg (2,711.69 lb). This makes it around 50 kg (110.23 lb) lighter than its predecessor. The interior was already shown and for those who don’t know, the highlight is that the MMI screen and instrument cluster have been combined to form a central unit called Audi virtual cockpit.

Seven of the colors in the range are new for the TT, and two of these are completely new for Audi: Nano Gray and Tango Red. For the 2015MY, Audi offers the start-stop system as standard on the new TT. The TT 2.0 TFSI and the 2.0 TDI come as standard with 17” forged wheels in five-spoke design.

Audi revealed today the first official sketches with the all-new 2015 TT that will make its world debut next month at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. As you can see from the sketches, the design is inspired by the Concept seen at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, but don’t expect something radical, as the 2015 Audi TT will not show a fancy design.

The front end is dominated by horizontal lines, the singleframe grille is broad and flat, and the two contours form a V-pattern on the hood, The four rings logo now sits centrally on the hood, echoing the more expensive Audi R8. Moreover, the car features new headlights that come with optional LED technology or the newest Matrix LED technology.

Many details seen on the brand new TT are inspired by the original model. The flat greenhouse looks like an entity in its own right. The shape of the C-post, with a slight kink, gives the TT a powerful, athletic look and enhances the impression of tension. At the rear, we find redesigned taillights and the third brake light with a flat strip shape that links them.
