Audi TT Second Generation 2006-Present

Feb 2, 2008
The Audi TT brand has been in production since 1999, but the second model has just been in production for about 2 years now. The Second Generation TT is strongly based on the Volkswagen A5 platform, and has two classes, which consist of a roadster car model and a luxury sport. The original plans for the Audi TT Second Generation were revealed in 2004, then it was first showcased to the public on April 6th, 2006, and it was dubbed by the internal indicator of "Typ 8J". And like its predecessor the First Generation TT, it was praised by critics for its innovative, bold, provocative look and design, which is has been kept traditional with the brand. The ideals of the original unmatched design of the Audi TT both first and second can be heaped upon to its creative designers Freeman Thomas and J Mays of the Volkswagen's California design studio, as well as Martin Smith for the original concept and designing of the prize winning interior.

The prototypical Second Generation TT production car comes standard with the "3.2 litre VR6 engine" that outputs 250PS (247hp or 184kW). But the car has an additional option of Audi's rendition of direct injection engine in the form of the "2.0 litre Turbo I4", also known as the FSI (Fuel Straight/ Stratified Injection) outputting 200PS (197hp or 147kW). The FSI mechanics was obtained from the specially crafted Le Mans racing cars, which resulted in an overall improvement of fuel capabilities, and enhanced power turnover. This technology was imitated, enhanced, and integrated into Audi's format for the 2.0 litre engine. The transmission of the car came with the basic 6 speed manual drive, but has added the alternative of the DSG refined model as well, along with the "quattro all wheel drive" trimmings being standard with the 3.2 litre V6 engine.

The body-style of the original TT has been augmented and matched up to a higher level of elegance, and style, but still supporting the fundamental traits of the First Generation TT. The car is still being offered in the sheik roadster design, and the 2+2 coupe (4-door coupe), in keeping with the tradition for all the inherited lovers of the First Generation TT car. One of the TT's newer design is that it is manufactured out of aluminum in the front end, and out of steel in the rear end in order to magnify the balance of the car overall. This change also allows the car to be obtainable in both all wheel drive, and front wheel drive. The specifications of the second generation TT includes a length of 4178mm (164.5in); wheelbase of 2468mm (97.2in); a height of 1352mm (53.2in); and a width of 1842mm (72.5).

The TT comes with a couple of new performance intensifying embellishments that makes the car truly unique and allowing for a smoother ride, like the new reactive suspension the "Audi Magnetic Ride" being available as an option for the TT and is firmly based on "Delphi's MagneRide magneto rheological dampers". The "Audi Magnetic Ride" allows the suspension to automatically adapt relying on the present road settings that car might meet. A further addition to its interactive list is the redefined back spoiler that automatically lengthens allowing speeds over 75mph (120km/h), but can also retract at an appropriate location to allow even a low of 50mph (80km/h), which can also be controlled by the driver by utilizing a switch on the dashboard.

The Second Generation TT has captured many awards for the combination of the old with new and complete innovation at its best. The TT was the very first recipient of the "Drive Car of the Year", and outright won "Atuobild's Most Beautiful Car", "Fifth Gear Car of the Year 2006", "Top Gear Coupe of the Year 2006", "World Design Car of the Year 2007", and has been a finalist for "World Car of the Year". In 2004, Audi has announced plans for the next generation TT that will completely be manufactured out aluminum, and would go into the production line in 2007.
