The new Audi TT* and the TTS* are driving machines – powerful, lightweight, efficient and consistent. A drive down winding country roads or a quick detour to the racetrack allows this character to shine. The Coupé turns into corners spontaneously, virtually instantaneously, and powers through them with unwavering calm, guided throughout with utmost precision by its sensitive steering. As the car approaches its high limits, it begins to understeer ever so slightly – the effortless controllability is another character trait of the TT and the TTS.
Thanks to the newly developed quattro all-wheel drive system, the compact Audi sports car combines dynamics and safety for a totally new driving experience. The all-wheel drive software controls the hydraulic multi-plate clutch differently depending on the driver’s style and the setting of the control systems for handling that ranges from stable to highly emotional.
The driver just has to turn sportily into a corner and the clutch can direct a portion of the torque from the front to the rear axle. As soon as the driver steps on the accelerator, the forces literally press the car into the corner – spontaneously, with no trace of initial understeer. The Coupé turns precisely into the corner in the event of a load change. The clutch works together with the torque vectoring system under load to permit safe, controlled drifts à la rear-wheel drive on low-grip surfaces. The front axle straightens out the car when exiting the corner.
All three engines offer tremendous power even at low engine speeds. Up to 380 Nm (280.3 lb-ft) of torque means a high level of driving comfort. There is another side to the 2.0 TFSI in the TTS, however. Drivers who push the powerful four-cylinder will experience the power of 228 kW (310 hp), rapid revving to nearly the 7,000 rpm mark and a well-composed, powerful sound. Its performance figures – 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.6 seconds – place the new Audi TTS into a league with the big sports cars.
