The Audi TTS instantly stands out as the dynamic flagship of the TT model line.

Built for fun

YUPies from all over the world rejoice today, finally the hairdresser's car has gone upmarket with its high performance TTS. 272 hp will ensure that you will get from point A to point B fast, and in style.

Audi has re-engineered and strengthened its 2.0 TFSI engine in a number of key areas for the TTS, which now produces 200 kW (272 hp) with 350 Nm of torque between 2,500 and 5,000 rpm. Gas mileage is also impressive at 8.0 liters per 100 km for the coupe with manual transmission, the roadster does a little worse at 8.2 liters per 100 km. The optional S-tronic dual-clutch transmission will drop fuel consumption by 0.1 and 0.2 liters per 100 km respectively.

Power is nothing if you can't put it to the road, and Audi has also thought of that. Hence the magnetic ride adaptive damping system for optimum handling under any road circumstance. There are two options, Standard for a well-balanced, comfortable ride and Sport mode which lowers the car by 10 mm and delivers sporty handling.

This Sunday the Audi TTS will be unveiled at the 2008 North American International Auto Show in Detriot. On a side note, this year also marks the 10th anniversary of the Audi TT.
