2008 Audi TT Convertible

[cars name="Audi"] recently released images of its chopped-top TT roadster. The roadster’s numbers are little different from the coupe’s; Audi’s 3.2-liter, 250-hp V-6 will 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 front-wheel drive only, while the V-6 comes exclusively with all-wheel drive. An electric wind deflector will be available; Europeans will see both a power and a manual convertible top, but 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.
