The TT is possibly one of Audi's most versatile models. You can get your TT in a coupe or roadster model. There are also options for convertible lovers in the TT. This car has received some new trim and molding on the body to keep its looks all new and some added horsepower to keep this model competitive with Europe's top performing sports coupes. Now with a 265 horsepower engine shoveling out 258 foot pounds of torque, the Audi TT's turbocharged four cylinder engine performs very well for its small size.
The smaller engine does not stop this roadster from performing like a champ, the dual clutch automatic transmission and Quattro all wheel drive system give this vehicle some amazing cornering abilities and plenty of fun when you are pushing it to the limits. This vehicle is meant to ride 2 and there is very limited storage for those who are traveling in it. The rear seats are there, but almost unusable for any normal sized human being.

Performance & Handling

Upgraded for the hot TTS model, the turbo four makes 265 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque sent to all four wheels via a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive.
