HERNDON, VA – Audi of America released pricing for the highest performing TT models ever brought to market — the 2009 TTS Coupe and TTS Roadster.
Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price for the TTS Coupe will start at $45,500 and $47,500 for the TTS Roadster.
Building on TT innovations, the TTS models deliver unparalleled performance with the most powerful engine in the TT lineup, superior traction with standard quattro all-wheel drive, extraordinary shift times with the standard S tronic dual clutch transmission, and enhanced driver control with TTS-specific Audi magnetic ride. Audi will begin selling the TTS models in late 2008.
The ultra-efficient, direct-injected, turbocharged 2.0 TFSI engine rewards TTS Coupe owners with both class-leading acceleration and fuel economy. The TTS Coupe races from 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds, and achieves a combined fuel economy of 24 mpg. The TTS Roadster offers comparable performance with a 0-60 mph time of 5.1 seconds and a class-leading combined fuel economy of 24 mpg. Both versions of the TTS achieve an exceptional 29 mpg in highway driving and 21 mpg in city driving based on government fuel-economy ratings. The electronically governed top track speed for the TTS is 155 mph.
The new 2.0 TFSI engine in the TTS produces excellent horsepower (265 hp @ 6000 rpm) and exceptional torque (258 lb.-ft. @2500-5000 rpm), while meeting California's rigorous ULEV II ultra-low emissions standards. With that kind of performance the TTS models demonstrate Audi's strategy of offering cars that respect the environment without sacrificing the thrill of driving.
