A prototype of the 2015 Audi TT Roadster has been caught on camera for the first time while undergoing testing in Germany.

The third generation Audi TT Coupe was unveiled back in March at the Geneva Motor Show so naturally the team from Ingolstadt is now putting the finishing touches on its open-top sibling. The TT Roadster was spotted at home in Germany with the soft top up and down showing it will feature an antiroll bar behind the seats.

Also behind those light brown leather-wrapped seats will be a vertical wind blocker so your haircut won't be ruined when driving with the fabric roof down. The rear lid appears to be slightly longer compared to the coupe while the interior cabin will likely be carried over with minimal changes.

The TT Roadster will be available with a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine offered in two states of tune: 230 PS & 370 Nm and 310 PS & 380 Nm in the hotter TTS. There will also be a more economical 2.0-liter turbodiesel rated at 184 PS (135 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft). Gearbox choices will include a six-speed manual and an optional six-speed S tronic sending power to the front wheels or the quattro AWD setup.

An official reveal will likely occur at the beginning of October in Paris, with sales set to start before the end of the year as a 2015MY.
