The brand new Audi TT has gone on sale
The all new TT model for 2014 from German brand Audi has officially gone on sale. Sales begun on this brand new addition to the range last Thursday with deliveries of the car being guaranteed for the December time. The TT is one of the brands flagship vehicles on offer and has been seen as one of the biggest sellers that Audi have ever had on offer.
The very first TT model was put on the market back in 1998. In 1995 the TT model was shown as a concept vehicle at the Frankfurt motor show and was not guaranteed to ever make the production line. Thankfully it did though and it has made an impact on the global car industry for many years. The TT name actually comes from the famous motorbike event held on the Isle of man. The NSU company used to race in the Isle of man motorcycle race and then went on to become Audi hence the name the TT. With such a big reputation to live up to from it's past success, can the new TT achieve just as much if not more success in the future?
What new changes have gone into this years TT?
So what new features does this years TT model consist of that could help solidify the legacy of the Audi TT model ?. Well during the cars time on the production line, the manufacturers have confirmed that regarding the power this model packs, we see a deliverance of between 181 and 227 brake horse power delivered from the two engine ranges that will go on offer with the car.
The first choice of engine is the 2.0 litre,four cylinder,TFSI and your alternative choice being a 2.0 litre TDI 'Ultra'. The TFSI version of the car will be made available in either Audi's quattro all wheel drive format or front wheel drive. A six speed,manual transmission system comes along with the TT but the choice of a Six speed,dual clutch s tronic, automatic transmission is available too.
Top speeds for this range is limited to 155 miles per hour with the 62 miles per hour area being achieved in six seconds flat. The 'Ultra' range is only offered as a front wheel drive variant and is only capable of reaching 150mph. With less on offer performance wise for the 'Ultra' version of the car, we see that it takes this variant to make the leap to 62 miles per our a total of 7.1 seconds.
A standard version of this TT comes with 18 inch wheels,LED lights and a much more stiff sports suspension system. Other features to come along with the car as standard include a keyless go system,sports seating, Alcantara leather seating and manual air conditioning as standard. The Audi TT has proven to be a fierce contender for that of the RCZ from French brand Peugeot and the BMW 4 series in the past. With these all new additions being thrown into the mix for this years TT, we certainly believe this will very still much prove to be the case once again and even open the door for other top flight contenders.
