Then, second generation Audi TT was launched in 2006 and was named the “World Design Car of the Year” in 2007 and it hasn’t stopped as it continues to be a crowd-pleaser thanks to its sleek lines and impressive performance.
An entry-level engine will now be added to the Audi TT coupé range some time this month, providing customers with a more affordable entry into the compact sports car segment. The 1.8T FSI engine being introduced has a power output of 118kW and generates 250Nm of torque. The TT boasts impressive efficiency figures due to its lightweight aluminium body, and the efficiency figures for this particular model remain just as impressive. The combined fuel consumption is 6.4 litres/100 km with combined CO2 emissions figures of 49g/km.
The TT 1.8 TFSI weighs a mere 1 240kg. The body of the coupé weighs only 206kg, which breaks down to 140kg of aluminium (68 percent) and 66kg of steel (32 percent). The Audi Space Frame body of the TT is not only extremely lightweight, it’s also very strong and exhibits very low vibration, providing the foundation for sporty and precise handling, a quiet ride and high passive safety.
Pricing for this model has been confirmed at R392 000 for the manual and R409 000 for the S tronic. All pricing is inclusive of taxes and the standard 5-year/100 000km Audi Freeway Plan.
