the third generation AUDI TT coupe and AUDI TTS coupe celebrated their world premiere at the geneva international motor show, characterized by the use of innovative technologies in the engine, controls and displays, including AUDI’s ‘virtual cockpit’. dominated by horizontal lines, the new TT sees the introduction of a broader and flatter single frame grille compared the second generation model. powered by turbocharged and direct injection 2.0 liter four-cylinder engines, the sports car variants deliver up-to 310 horsepower and 280.27 lb-ft of torque. paired with six-speed manual transmissions and standard all-wheel drive, the highest-end TT launches from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.7 seconds before maxing at an electronically limited speed of 250 km/h.

starting in the top corners of the grille, sharp contours run in a ‘V’ across the hood, which incorporates the four AUDI rings, just like on the AUDI R8 high-performance super car. the flat the matrix LED headlights consist of 12 bulbs, featuring dynamic turn signals that light up sequentially in the direction in which the driver is steering. in addition, predictive cornering lights use navigation data to move the cone of light into the curve before the steering wheel is turned, with high beams controllable through individual LEDs.

as with the exterior, horizontal lines and surfaces emphasize the width of the interior. the center tunnel console, which supports the calves when driving fast through bends, and the door panels have similar flowing shapes. the instrument cluster and the multi-media interface screen have been combined to form a central, digital unit, which is known as the ‘audi virtual cockpit’. when seen from above, the instrument panel resembles the wing of an aircraft; the round air vents are reminiscent of jet engines with their turbine-like design. the vents also contain all the controls for the standard air conditioning system and the optional automatic air conditioning system.
