SPORT TEASER
Audi TTS

Posted

Audi is taking the wraps off a new sports car - the Audi TTS, the top of the TT model line. Under its hood lies a twoliter TFSI high-performance engine delivering a mighty 200 kW (272 hp). This intense power propels the TTS Coupe to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) from a standstill in just 5.2 seconds and on to a governorlimited top speed of 250 km/h (155.34 mph).

Designed to appeal to a young and dynamic clientele, the TTS represents the Audi brand's Vorsprung durch Technik (“advancement through technology”) in its very latest form. The TFSI engine in the TTS takes the two Audi technologies of gasoline direct injection and turbocharging and blends them to form a perfect partnership. Aside from its output of 200 kW (272 hp), its peak torque of 350 Nm (258.15 lbft), which is constantly on tap between 2,500 and 5,000 rpm, makes the compact and lightweight four-cylinder unit so impressive. The two-liter power unit has been reengineered and strengthened in a number of key areas to ready it for operation in the TTS. Thanks to its excellent efficiency, the sportysounding TFSI has an average fuel consumption of just 8.0 liters of fuel per 100 km (29.375 mpg) in the Coupe when partnered by the six-speed manual transmission, while the figure for the roadster averages 8.2 l/100 km (28.659 mpg).

These figures are improved by 0.1 and 0.2 l/100 km (by 0.372 and 0.716 mpg), respectively, if the optional S tronic dualclutch transmission is fitted.
