Audi TT coupe debuts at New York Auto Show
NEW YORK — The new Audi TT was shown to the U.S. public this week at the New York Auto Show, after it was introduced earlier in Berlin.
The new Coupe will be available in the fall and will be followed later by the Roadster version. The second generation of the TT is longer (165 inches) and wider (72.4 inches) and has an ASF Space Frame that combines aluminum and steel for the first time.
The car has a spoiler in the rear that flips up at 75 mph for maximum down force on the rear wheels. Audi will offer the new TT with a choice of two engines: a 2-liter I-4 direct-injected turbo engine developing 200 horsepower or a 3.2-liter V-6 producing 250 horsepower.
Both engines are combined with a six-speed gearbox, but can also be delivered in combination with S-tronic transmission with double clutch. The 2.0-liter TT has front-wheel drive, and the V-6 is an all-wheel drive quattro.
In the autumn Audi will offer magnetic ride, an adaptive damping system. The new TT will be equipped with automatic air conditioning and a new audio system. Adaptive lighting with corner lighting and a parking system is optional.
The new TT Coupe will hit the markets after the summer and will be joined by the Roadster in 2007.
