Audi is further expanding its iconic Audi TT range this week by introducing new, third generation successors to the popular TDI quattro Coupé and Roadster models.
Slotting into the line-up alongside the established front-wheel-drive TDI ultra efficiency champions, the new all-wheel-driven versions are now available to order priced from £34,230, and are due to start arriving with UK customers in the spring.
A six-speed S tronic twin-clutch transmission exclusively partners the 2.0 TDI unit in the new variants, and appropriate distribution of the 184PS and 380Nm of torque that it channels to both axles is the responsibility of the electro-hydraulic multi-plate clutch at the heart of the quattro system.
It incorporates wheel selective torque control for even more precise and agile roadholding in all weathers. Sprint times reflect the traction advantages, with zero to 62mph in the Coupé dipping to 6.7 seconds compared to 7.1 seconds for the TDI ultra, while top speed is a creditable 145mph.
In the Roadster, 62mph takes 7.0 seconds, three tenths quicker than the ultra, with a 142mph top speed.
