Audi TT Goes Open Top
The second generation Audi TT is already on the loose. And this new one has been created and designed to be a roadster. If you do remember, the first Audi TT that came out in the year 2000 in the United Kingdom was created to be a coupe that held two doors. Now, as a roadster, this luxury sports car from the Audi brand would also be coming in with two doors as well.
Those car and sports car fanatics who were able to feast their eyes on this vehicle have come to say that the second generation Audi TT model has got many types of radical changes that are covered just right beneath its hood and its Audi performance parts. The construction of the vehicle has also been changed and the suspension technology has definitely been renewed so as to bring a total kind of performance for the vehicle. However, despite such changes, the classic Audi TT reputation as a luxury sports car is still found.
As per this new one, you would have to set aside some £26,915 just to be able to take one home. Orders for the vehicle would be open starting this November. The very first unit would be coming to the United Kingdom by next spring.
What Audi did so as to augment any changes that it did to the Audi TT was to actually keep the original cloth hood which is powered electrohydraulically. This one gives the vehicle the chance to save on some weight. And such a type of cloth hood is much lighter because it makes use of a new type of steel and aluminum for its support framework. Plus, it also works as a sound proof material.
Where does the power of the vehicle come from? Audi says that customers would have two options for its engine. One would be the 2.0 liter Turbo FSI petrol engine that can give the vehicle a boost of 200 PS. Or you can also opt to have the 3.2 liter V6 petrol engine that has the capacity to create 250 PS. Both are partnered with a six speed manual transmission. However, you can also opt to have an S tronic twin clutch automatic transmission but this one would ask you to spend a little more cash for it is only offered as an option.
