New TT set for Paris

The roadster TT looks sportier than ever and will cost around £2,200 more than the Coupe


Audi has unveiled a new member to its new TT family, six months after the TT Coupe was first shown. Set to debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show next week, the Audi TT Roadster will be available to order from mid-November with first deliveries in spring 2015.


The new TT Roadster features a fully automatic fabric hood and will carry a premium of around £2,200 over the equivalent Coupe. As specification for Sport and S line versions of the Roadster will mirror the Coupe, expect prices to start from £31,970 for the 182bhp 2.0 TDI Sport.Yellow Audi TT


Other engine choices will include a 227bhp 2.0 TFSI and a 306bhp TTS, both available with a six-speed manual as standard or an optional six-speed duel-clutch S Tronic gearbox for £1,370 extra. Quattro four-wheel drive is optional on the 2.0 TFSI model and standard on the TTS Roadster.


The standard kit on Sport models includes Audi’s swish new 12.3-inch virtual cockpit screen in place of a traditional instrument cluster, sat-nav, adaptive dampers and 18-inch wheels. S line models gains an inch bigger wheels, full LED headlights and a 10mm drop in ride height.


The Audi Roadster won’t be the final member of the new Audi TT family either. Besides a scorching five-cylinder TT-RS, which is deep into development, Audi is reported to be toying with the idea of a TT-SUV and a TT-Shooting Brake.


We’ve already seen what a jacked-up TT looks like with the Allroad Shooting Brake Concept shown at the Detroit show earlier this year, and reports suggest another shooting-brake-shaped show car will make its debut in Paris next week.
