The Audi TT Roadster 3.2 quattro

V6-powered TT Roadster 3.2 quattro with unique DSG transmission now on sale in the UK

The World’s first Roadster with automatic transmission that does away with a torque converter, the latest Audi TT goes on sale in Britain this month. The V6, 3.2 quattro is available to order, priced at £31,405 OTR.

The TT is unique in its segment, offering quattro four-wheel-drive and revolutionary Formula One type transmission, the Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) with double-clutch configuration. A key feature of the gearbox is its launch control facility, aided by its sophisticated oil-bathed and cooled clutch system.

The highly successful Audi TT Roadster, now also features a six-cylinder engine - the 3.2 litre power plant delivering 250PS at 6,300rpm, powering 0 to 62mph in just 6.6 seconds with limited top speed of 155mph. Fitted as standard in all Audi TT 3.2 quattro models, is the advanced DSG twin-clutch transmission, which has its roots in motor sport from as far back as 1985 when Walter Röhrl competed in FIA World Rally Series in the Audi Sport quattro S1.

The Audi TT 3.2 Roadster is one of the most fuel efficient ‘automatics’ in the High Performance Sports Roadster segment, delivering an excellent 28.2mpg on the combined cycle, and company car drivers benefit from the TT Roadster 3.2 being Euro IV compliant.

Firmly established as one of the most recognisable and iconic car shapes of it generation, the TT has been the clear market leader amongst compact sports cars. Far exceeding original sales predictions, the UK remains the largest market in the world for the TT. The TT was the first car of its kind to reach production virtually unchanged from its prototype debut in Frankfurt (Tokyo-Roadster) and remains as fresh and desirable as ever.
