2007 Audi TT Convertible Wallpaper Photo Gallery

[cars name="Audi"] recently released images of its chopped-top TT roadster, along with some preliminary specifications. The roadster’s numbers look to be little different from the coupe’s; U.S. powertrains have yet to be determined, but Audi’s 3.2-liter, 250-hp V-6 will likely make an appearance, along with a 2.0-liter TFSI turbo direct-injection four-cylinder. Like the coupe, the roadster is both longer (by 5.4 inches), wider (by 3.1 inches), and taller (by 0.3 inches) than its predecessor. Wheelbase increases as well, by 1.8 inches. Reinforced side sills and a-pillars are unique to the drop-top.

Like the coupe, the four-cylinder roadster is likely to be front-wheel drive only, while the V-6 should come exclusively with all-wheel drive. An electric wind deflector will be available; Europeans will see both a power and a manual convertible top, but our guess is that we’ll only get the powered version.

By all accounts, the new is everything the last one wasn’t: a soulful, chunky little squirt of a car with the personality to match its carved-from-a-block-of-Bau’s-Haus looks. We can but hope that the roadster version won’t be any different.
