Audi TT launched in 1999 and has been a success story ever since with sales of the TT increasing annually along with high levels of acclaim for its design and performance. Available as coup and roadster body styles, both are offered with Quattro four wheel drive and S tronic automatic transmission technology.
The Audi TT 3.2 Quattro TT is capable of reaching a top speed of 155mph and will manage 0-62mph in 5.7 seconds. Audi TT 2008 models come with a 3-spoke flat-bottom leather steering wheel and aluminium interior detailing. All TT models feature front sports seats with fine Nappa leather, climate control and aerodynamic rear spoiler. The spoiler automatically extends as soon as the car reaches 74 mph. Part of the reason for the TTs reputation for supreme road handling and acceleration is Audis Quattro four-wheel-drive technology. Audi pioneered 4wheel drive in performance cars and its success in rallying is proof of its capabilities. The innovative performance of the Audi TT is matched by the bold design, a package which single handedly transformed Audi from a reliable but somewhat dull manufacturer into a more exciting proposition altogether.
You probably want to know what is so special about the famed Audi TT transmission? Well, the S tronic gearbox combines the responsiveness of a conventional 6-speed manual gearbox with the smooth power of automatic transmission. The S tronic gearbox uses a double clutch consisting of two lubricated plates with hydraulically-regulated contact pressure. One engages the odd-numbered, the other the even-numbered gears, enabling gear-shifts to be made in a fraction of a second, with no disruption to the power flow. There is a full choice of auto or the S tronic system, using the gear lever or steering wheel shift-paddles at your disposal. You can also choose short-shift manual transmission. The shorter distance between each shift minimises the effort of changing gears and maximises the fun and performance of your Audi TT.
