Audi TT S Roadster (2008-2015)

The Audi TT S Roadster adds another dimension to an already fun car with a lightweight 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. It replaced the V6 car with a lighter engine and a selection of handling improvements. Quattro all-wheel-drive comes as standard which gives sure-footed and predictable handling while the responsive steering keeps it entertaining. The chassis feels stiff, but the ride is supple yet firm, no doubt aided by Audi’s Magnetic Ride adjustable damping system. The TTS body styling is a little flamboyant for a company whose hot cars are usually a bit more discreet.

The latest Audi TT is a little less radical than the car it succeeds, but it has grown up and become a more sophisticated and capable sports car. While it is larger than the previous model a 50% aluminium construction has kept it lightweight and agile. The engine give excellent performance while handling is equally impressive.

The TT’s roof remains the cloth type which keeps luggage space at acceptable levels and again reduces weight. Inside the interior is well finished as we have come to expect from Audi although rear visibility isn’t great with the roof in place.
