Audi takes the TT back to its roots First unveiled at the 1995 Frankfurt auto show, the new TT sports car is supposedly a modern interpretation of an old Audi favourite, with all the trappings of Volkswagon’s EA3888 turbocharged and direct-injection technology.
With all the rumours flying around online recently, it’s been hard to know exactly what Audi is planning for the third generation 2014 TT (Tourist Trophy)- although it seems at this point some of the more credible conjectures have been pinned down.
The third generation TT sports car will see Audi return the model to its original roots, with a few improvements of course. First unveiled at the 1995 Frankfurt auto show, the new TT sports car is supposedly a modern interpretation of an old Audi favourite, rumoured to contain a two-litre, four-cylinder engine, with all the trappings of Volkswagon’s EA3888 turbocharged and direct-injection technology.
The standard model will therefore deliver a total of 220 horsepower, while the S version will allow for slightly more with its turbo, bringing it up to a total of 300 horses. Changes to the exterior such as the latest six-corner single-frame grille, slimmer and more angular headlights, prominent wheel arches, as well as a more defined shoulder line and rounded rear end are also slated to appear in the new TT model.
If these rumours weren’t juicy enough, there’s even more to be excited about from the TT-RS. With its five-cylinder engine, as well as front and Quattro all-wheel drive systems, the TT-RS promises to be a formidable step-up, packing an impressive 380 horsepower under the hood.
