The classic Audi Sport Coupé ups the ante on horsepower and performance with the TTS. From the high torque across all RPMs to the incredibly adaptive suspension via Audi Magnetic Ride, the TTS never stops delivering.
The 2.0 TFSI® under the hood of the TTS unites two great Audi technologies : FSI® direct injection technology and turbocharging. The direct injection technology enables torqueTorqueTorque is what causes rotational speed to change. Just as greater net forces cause greater linear accelerations, greater torques cause greater rotational or angular accelerations.Torque and output levels to be increased while the turbochargerTurbochargerTurbochargers are the most usual means of forced aspiration used on motor vehicles. Turbocharger provides high torque over a greater rev range. The result is an impressive 265 hp and 258 lb/ft of torque, which enables the TTS to move from 0 to 100 kph in just 5.1 seconds.
One of the world’s most advanced automatic transmissions is designed to deliver near constant power. This is achieved by using two clutches, two input shafts and two independent gear clusters. The result is nothing short of incredible performance with lightning fast shift speeds. Drivers also have the option of utilizing a sport mode and engaging the gears themselves via the shift lever or steering wheel paddle shifters. S tronicS tronicS tronic, Audi's revolutionary direct shift gearbox (formerly DSG) combines the advantages of a conventional six-speed manual-shift gearbox with the qualities possessed by a modern automatic transmission.S tronic ® also facilitates a launch control program for optimal acceleration from standstill.
The legendary quattro®quattro®Audi quattro® permanent all-wheel drive, has had over a 30-year-long tradition.quattro® system offers sure-footed traction and enhanced driving performance. With the ability to send 100 per cent of the drive torque to the front or rear axle, it can instantaneously adjust to the driver’s needs, depending on road or driving conditions. The quattro® all-wheel drive system gives the car superb driveability, high acceleration capability, and outstanding cornering and handling stability.
The standard BOSE® Sound System offers dynamic noise-compensation, 8-channel amplifier and 12 loudspeakers including centre speaker and tweeters in the dashboard, mid-range speakers and woofers in the doors, as well as low-mid-range speakers, tweeters and a woofer in the rear side panels. The system has a total output of 255 watts and includes an AudioPilot® microphone mounted in the ceiling, which monitors interior noise level.
The principle of intelligent lightweight design is employed to particularly good effect in a sports car such as the TTS Coupé. The Audi Space Frame® (ASF®ASF®The Audi A8 is the first North American car with an aluminum body built according to the Audi Space Frame® principle. ASF® ) offers high body rigidityRigiditySufficiently high static and dynamic body stiffness are prerequisites for many desirable vehicle characteristics.Rigidity and strength thanks to its composite construction using aluminum and steel. The ASF® helps achieve body shell weight reduction upwards of 48 per cent (approx. 100 kg) compared to conventional steel. This also improves the car’s overall weight distribution and handling characteristics, on top of the increased performance and efficiency.
All Audi TT models come standard with a Driver Information System. The information displayed here includes data from the onboard efficiency program for fuel consumption, directory and call information via Bluetooth®Bluetooth®Bluetooth® is the name of a group of wireless technology standards that allows different types of electronic devices to interact via short-range radio waves.Bluetooth® , data pertaining to the current audio operation as well as speed. However, for TTS, a lap timer is also added to the Driver Information System for those who desire to take the TTS on track to push the car’s, and their own, capabilities.
Standard on the TTS, adaptive headlights help you to see further and see earlier in poor light conditions and especially in bends. The dynamic cornering lightDynamic Cornering LightThe dynamic cornering light is part of the adaptive light system and illuminates your way by pivoting the headlight module to follow the twists and turns in the road ahead.Dynamic Cornering Light swivels the headlights in the direction of travel, following the degree of turn of the steering wheel. As a result, it effectively illuminates the path of the road ahead.
Audi magnetic ride continuously adapts the suspension damping to the changing driving situation. It does this automatically and in just fractions of a second by means of an electronically controlled magnetic field. The Normal and Sport modes allow the basic setting to be adjusted individually as desired, with Normal being more balanced and comfortable and Sport being more dynamic. With Sport mode, the car becomes increasingly more agile and overall handling ability is improved. Additionally, when Sport mode is selected, a number of additional characteristics of the car are enhanced. There is a more spontaneous accelerator response, audible engine noise is enhanced and the steering feel becomes more direct. The overall driving experience is significantly heightened with Sport mode selected.
The TTS comes standard with silk Nappa leather seats. The seats feature coloured inserts as well as contrast stitching to give the car a sportier, yet luxurious feel. The seat backs are also embossed with 'TTS'. In addition to their great looks, the seats are also bolstered to provide improved lateral support.
