The Audi TT 2.0 TDI Coupe quattro and Audi TT Roadster 2.0 TDI quattro are the first series- production sports cars to feature diesel engines.
170 hp sports car with 42+ mpg
Proven performance, acclaimed styling and over 42 miles per gallon, what more could you possibly ask for in a sports car. The USA is aiming for a 2020 35 mpg standard but Audi raises the bar already today in their latest addition to the TT range, the Audi TT Coupe and Roadster 2.0 TDI which also happen to meet the strict Euro 5 standard.
Let me get straight to the point and throw the numbers at you: 125 kW (170 hp) with 350 Nm torque (258 lb-ft), uses 5.3 liters (Coupe) and 5.5 liters (Roadster) of diesel per 100 km (44.38 mpg and 42.77 mpg), the Coupe is capable of doing zero to hundred km/h in 7.5 seconds with a top speed of 226 km/h (140 mph), the Roadster is just a little slower (7.6 seconds and 223 km/h) while the Coupe weighs just 1,370 kg and the Roadster 1,415 kg.
Of course the Audi TT TDI quattro comes with permanent four-wheel-drive (85% of power goes to the front and 15% to the rear), it will be sitting on 16 inch cast aluminium wheels (255/55 R16), a track width of 1,572 mm and optional is Audi's magnetic ride (shock absorber system).
All we have to do now is wait for the Audi R8 V12 TDI.
