Audi TT Roadster LAUNCHED !!!

                Audi TT Roadster

Editorial Review





 While the re-freshened Audi TT coupe was launched some time back this year, it was evident that soon there will be the roadster version following it. The TT roadster has a cloth top or a soft top as it is called.  It opens in 12 seconds, even while driving at a speed of up to 50 km/h which is neat. For further safety the two massive rollover bars protect the driver and passenger in the event of a rollover. Compared to the Coupé it is just 251 kilograms heavier.
 
 
Looks
 
The design is timeless The fog lights are set in chrome rings. Also sporting a new look are new single-frame grille in high-gloss black and the optional xenon plus headlights. It also has twelve white LEDs arranged in a straight line which act as the daytime running lights. The 2.0 TFSI has a dual exhaust which is neat. . The specific reinforcements in the TT Roadster  include a steel bulkhead, strongly ribbed sills and windshield frame.
 
 
Interior
 
The interior looks stylish with the steering wheel is flattened at the bottom. It has five round air vents and  the typical round-dial instruments have the classic TT look.  There are three new interior colors from which to choose though we like it with some of the red bits thrown in
 
 
Engine, tech
 
The TT roadster will have a 2.0 TFSI petrol just like its coupe sibling. It makes 211 bhp and perfectly suits the car.  It also has a six-speed S tronic gearbox and the famous Audi quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The time from zero to 100 km/h takes 5.6 seconds. The handling and grip are great and coupled with the open top feeling, its just brilliant. The TT roadster will compete with the BMW Z4, Mercedes-Benz SLK and Porsche Boxster.
  
Expected Price of Audi TT Roadster - Rs 50.00 L - 65.00 L
