Audi TT (8N) 1998-2006

Ingolstadt, 21 February, 2005

Dynamic and light
Audi TT quattro sport

At Audi, TT stands for undiluted driving pleasure. The Coupé captivates the driver with its agility and revolutionary design. Audi now offers something special for this sports car's large band of aficionados: TT quattro sport is the name of the new model in this successful car line. A car that embodies a purist approach to driving enjoyment combined with stunning looks.

More output and less weight – coupled with the superior qualities of quattro permanent four-wheel drive – are the key ingredients of undiluted driving pleasure and perfect handling. The Audi TT quattro sport is an authentic sports car that focuses even more strongly on sportiness and driving fun than the regular TT. It both demonstrates this through its performance and illustrates it through its exclusive two-colour look.

More output and torque

The engine and transmission have undergone extensive changes. The 1.8-litre turbo unit now delivers 240 bhp (176 kW). The torque has been increased to 320 Newton-metres. The Coupé's road performance is very impressive: the TT quattro sport accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and achieves a top speed of 250 km/h. Extensive technical measures have been taken in response to the engine's gain in output. The transmission casing for the four-cylinder engine houses the ring gear of the six-speed gearbox adopted from the top-of-the-range TT 3.2. The bodyshell is the same as that of the 1.8T except for the rear floor, which has likewise been adopted from the TT 3.2. This has made it possible to switch the battery to the rear and thereby optimise the weight distribution.

Powerful motor, powerful propulsion: the TT quattro sport has quattro permanent four-wheel drive as standard, delivering substantially more traction and safety than its competitors. The sports coupé is in addition equipped with S line sports suspension.

Less weight

Making light work: the Audi TT quattro sport keeps a very close eye on weight – conspicuously so, in fact, and in detail too. A mere glance inside the Coupé is sufficient to confirm that its weight has been reduced. The rear bench seat has been removed, instead of which there are now a transverse brace and a net partition for securing items of luggage. Audi has replaced the sports seats with superb Recaro bucket seats that afford maximum lateral support. The TT quattro sport has shed its automatic air conditioning for the sake of weight reduction, and instead has a heating system that weighs twelve kilograms less. Customers who would like to have the air conditioning system can order it at no extra charge.

Compared with a normal TT 1.8T (165 kW), the TT quattro sport has shed 75 kilograms, as a result of which it is even more agile and fun to drive. The sports car's unladen weight is 1,390 kilograms and the power-to-weight ratio is 5.8 kg/bhp.

Two-colour theme provides visual highlight

The Audi TT quattro sport is identifiable at first glance as a very special TT. The striking two-colour finish is the most immediate evidence that it is different. The roof is painted in Phantom Black pearl effect, and the body is available in the pearl effect colours Avus Silver, Misano Red, Mauritius Blue, Silver or Phantom Black. The colours of the vehicle body are also echoed by the backs of the bucket seats. The two-colour paint finish is the most striking visual change, but many other details distinguish the TT quattro sport from other TT models.

The S line exterior package with its special bumpers and modified side sills accentuates its sports appeal. At the rear, the diffusor trim with its two black tailpipes is a particularly noticeable feature. In keeping with the two-colour theme, the air inlets at the front, the exterior mirror housings and the rear spoiler and diffusor are in a contrasting colour.

The TT comes with large 18-inch wheels. The newly designed cast aluminium wheels of 15-spoke design provide a glimpse of the red brake calipers. The wheels are fitted with 235/40 R 18 tyres.

Exclusive materials for the interior

Exclusive materials dominate the interior. The steering wheel, handbrake and gear lever knob are trimmed in Alcantara, to match the Alcantara/leather seat upholstery. There are provisions for retrofitting harness belts both on the seats and on the vehicle body. The exclusive engraving on the glove box handle is another utterly distinctive touch that makes the TT quattro sport different.

The standard equipment includes xenon headlights and the luggage net. The TT quattro sport's specification can of course be extended by such items as automatic air conditioning, available at no extra charge, or an exclusive radio or the navigation system.

The TT quattro sport is the most systematic interpretation yet of a purist sports car philosophy in the Audi TT. It represents a perfect blend of pioneering technology, exemplified by quattro permanent four-wheel drive, and purist driving enjoyment.

The TT family

The successful TT car line comprises two body versions: the Coupé and the Roadster. As well as the 240 bhp engine for the quattro sport, which is available exclusively as a Coupé, there are three other engine versions for the entire car line. The high-torque 3.2-litre, six-cylinder engine developing 184 kW (250 bhp) is available with a choice of 6-speed gearbox or the Direct Shift Gearbox DSG.

Then there are three four-cylinder versions with outputs of 150, 180 and 225 bhp. Finally, Audi supplies a version of the TT with front-wheel drive as an alternative to quattro permanent four-wheel drive.

The Audi TT quattro sport, which is built by quattro GmbH, carries a price tag of EUR 41,600.

I heard that the spoiler has no real affect. It is just to show which car has the handling package. Early models had bad suspension that would seize up after a while, the only suspension then was through the flex in the axles, then they broke, resulting in a crash. The TT's that got the new handling package to solve this, so get a spoiler. It might be a load of rubbish but that is what i have been told.

It's true, the TT had problems from the start, so they added the spoiler and new suspension settings, they where also looking to increase the rear, but the spoiler and suspension settings took care of the problem.

About the post... audi triyng to give the TT it's last breath before the arrival of the new one?

NEW LIGHTWEIGHT AUDI TT SETS SPORTING BENCHMARK

New TT Coupé quattro Sport model is the lightest, quickest and most driver-focused TT quattro to date

New TT Coupé quattro Sport available to order now for £29,355 OTR for first deliveries in May 2005
1.8-litre turbo charged four-cylinder engine with power increased to 240PS at 5,700rpm and torque up from 290Nm to 320Nm between 2,300 and 5,000rpm
Rear seat and spare wheel removed to reduce weight, helping to achieve 0-62mph time of just 5.9 secs and 155mph maximum speed
Distinguishable by two-tone paint finish and sports styling package from the TT 3.2 quattro models, plus exclusive 15-spoke alloy wheels
Revised sports suspension and special interior treatment


A new and even more acutely performance-focused version of the iconic Audi TT sports car joins the range in Britain this month, combining increased power with reduced weight to give driver satisfaction absolute priority. Limited to just 1,000 right-hand-drive examples, the new Audi TT Coupé quattro Sport is now available to order for £29,355 OTR for first deliveries in May 2005.

Inspired by the four-cylinder turbo, 225PS TT Coupé quattro, the new TT Coupé quattro Sport raises its game through engine modifications that increase maximum power to 240PS, produced lower down the rev range at 5,700rpm, and torque from 280Nm to 320Nm between 2,300rpm and 5,000rpm.

To ensure that this additional power makes itself felt as fully as possible, weight has also been pared back compared with the familiar 225PS model. By replacing the spare wheel with a tyre mobility system, and the parcel shelf and rear seat with a stability bar that also improves torsional rigidity for optimum handling, kerb weight has been reduced by 49kg to 1,416kg.

Sharpened by increased power and reduced weight, the new TT Coupé quattro Sport is capable of sprinting from rest to 62mph in 5.9 seconds and reaching a maximum speed of 155mph, which is easily checked by an upgraded braking system derived from the 3.2 quattro models.

Cornering balance benefits as much as straight line speed in the transformation from ‘standard’ TT quattro to TT quattro Sport, not only as a result of the power and weight improvements, but also through revisions to suspension settings and wheel configuration. Exclusive 18-inch, 15-spoke alloy wheels with a slightly increased rim width at the rear (8.5J versus 8J) help to maximise grip and composure in conjunction with the quattro permanent four-wheel-drive system.

Externally, the TT Coupé quattro Sport is marked out by a unique two-tone paint finish combining a Phantom Black colour for the roof, pillars and mirror housings with the option of Mauritius Blue, Misano Red, Avus Silver or Phantom Black paint work for the remainder of the body. Its timeless lines are given a harder edge by the aerodynamic sports styling package normally reserved for the 3.2 V6 quattro models, which is set off perfectly by the striking 18-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, Recaro bucket seats upholstered in leather and Alcantara signal increased sporting intent, as does the Alcantara trimming for the steering wheel, gear knob and hand brake grip.

The launch of the TT Coupé quattro Sport has particular significance as it coincides with the 25th anniversary of the Audi-pioneered four-wheel-drive system that changed the face of international rallying forever and transformed performance road car dynamics in the process in the original road-going Audi quattro of 1980. In 2004, around a third of all Audi models registered in the UK were equipped with the quattro system.
