Earlier today we revealed you folks the all-new 2015 Audi TT Roadster, but now it’s time to take a closer look at the more potent 2015 Audi TTS Roadster. Just like the TTS Coupe, the TTS Roadster is equipped with 2.0-liter TFSI engine that produces 310 hp (228 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque.
With these numbers, the TTS Roadster is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.
The 2.0-liter TFSI engine is available with a manual six-speed transmission, while as an option the model gets the six-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission. Power is delivered to the road via the standard Quattro permanent all-wheel drive and the 18-inch wheels wrapped in 245/40 tyres.
Behind the wheels we find newly developed aluminum fixed-caliper brakes on the front axle As you can see from the photos, the TTS Roadster features an electrically actuated fabric top, which is 3 kg (6.6 lb) lighter than the predecessor.
Thanks to parts made out of magnesium, aluminum, steel and plastic, the soft top has a weight of just 39 kg (86 lb). The TTS Roadster gets as standard the driving dynamics system Audi drive select (available as an option on the TT Roadster), which allows the driver to adjust the engine sound. Audi offers the TTS Roadster several exterior colours such as Panther black and Sepang blue, while the interior is available in black, rock gray, palomino brown and red.
The interior gets the next-generation digital instrument cluster that replaces the analog instruments as well as the MMI monitor. The vehicle features a big 12.3-inch display and besides the tachograph and rev counter, there is also an infotainment mode that focuses on theme such as the navigation map. In addition there is a third theme that is focused on the rev counter.
The standard TT Roadster starts at 37,900 euros in Germany, but pricing for the TT Roadster is yet to be announced as it will be available at the start of 2015.
