Audi are celebrating the tenth anniversary of their TT by unveiling the new S version of the car in both coupe and cabriolet form at the Detroit show and adding it to their performance range for the first time.
Naturally it features Audi’s Quattro four-wheel-drive system and power comes from a 2.0-litre turbo FSI four cylinder engine producing 268 hp and 350Nm peak torque. This gives the Roadster a 0-62mph time of 5.6 seconds, a limited top speed of 155mph and combined fuel economy of 29.3mpg.
Suspension, steering and brakes are all revised to complement the enhanced performance while the standard Audi magnetic ride adaptive damping system should give optimum handling composure.
On the outside bi-xenon headlamps are standard along with the Audi family LED strip daytime running lights. At the front is a redesigned front apron with larger air intakes which link to deeper side skirts and 18-inch alloy wheels. While at the rear the revised bumper has four tailpipes protruding from its extended diffuser suggesting it’s performance potential.
Inside, deep-set Alcantara and leather combination sports seats, exclusive ‘S’ instruments with white needles, metal pedals and aluminium trim elements enhance the already pleasant sports interior.
