Audi will drop the silk sheet on a brand new Audi TT at the Geneva motor show next month and these initial sketches give us a good look at what we can expect from the sporty replacement to the immensely popular coupe.
First launched in 1998, the Audi TT was an instant hit, and won fans with its compact styling and punchy engines. Now, however, the German marque feels it is time to take things in a new direction.
A new angular ‘singleframe’ grille sits at the very front of the car, while the four ring badge moves up to the bonnet – echoing the Audi R8. The wheel arches have been flared and a deep shut line that runs from wheels to bonnet provides a nod to the original TT.
Modern touches, such as LED headlights and intricate tail-lights, drag the car into the modern era and that’s before we’ve had an official look at the reportedly magnificent interior.
The finished product is also said to have lost a considerable amount of weight when compared to previous generations, with some industry insiders saying it could weigh as little as 1200kg.
Throw into the mix the fact Audi has engines that can easily develop 400bhp and will fit snugly into the upcoming TT’s shapely bonnet, and you have a recipe for one impressive performance machine.
More details will be released at the Geneva motor show early next month but if the news has whet your appetite for an Audi TT, why not take a look at our collection of used models here.
