All-new 2015 Audi TT and TT S Roadster revealed, priced from £31,955

All-new third generation Audi TT and TTS debuted earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show.

Audi has now unveiled the open-top version of all-new TT ahead of its next week’s public debut at the Paris Motor Show.

The TT Roadster shares its engines with the coupe, meaning the standard model is powered by a 181bhp 2.0 TDI or a 227bhp 2.0-litre TFSI. More powerful TTS Roadster uses a 306bhp 2.0 TFSI.

The TDI ultra has a pretty amazing fuel economy, delivering in excess of 65mpg with CO2 emissions of just 114g/km. 0-62mph takes 7.3 seconds and the top speed is 147mph.

The base diesel powered TT is exclusively available with front wheel drive, while the 227bhp petrol unit can be combined with either front-wheel-drive and a six-speed manual gearbox or quattro all-wheel-drive linked to either manual or a six-speed S tronic twin-clutch transmission.

The top of the range TTS Roadster packing 306bhp comes with standard quattro drive linked to manual gearbox or the option of S tronic. 0-62mph comes in 4.9 seconds on it way to an electronically governed top speed of 155mph.

Even though the Roadster has received different modifications to its body from aluminium A‑pillars that each conceal a second steel pillar in their interior, which in turn houses a solid steel tube to Internal steel ribbing, the weight of the entry level petrol-powered TT Roadster is as low as 1,320kg.

The retractable fabric top weighs 39kg (3kg less than its predecessor) and is available in standard black, biege and titanium grey. The top can be opened and closed at speeds up to 31mph in 10 seconds.

The TT Roadster will be available to order from mid-November priced from £31,955 OTR for the diesel and from £32,045 for the 227bhp petrol. First deliveries are in March 2015.

The more powerful TTS Roadster will be available to order from early 2015 (prices to be confirmed closer to market launch) with first deliveries in second quarter.
