New sporty TT to cost slightly more a Z4 Coupe Sport, less than Cayman
14 February 2008

Audi has opened the order book on the new go-faster, 268bhp TT – the TTS – today. The coupe version will cost £33,380 – that’s slightly more than a BMW Z4 Coupe 3.0si Sport, but a couple of grand less than a base 2.7-litre Porsche Cayman.If you’d prefer an open-top TTS, it’ll cost you £35,380 – putting it in the questionable position of being more than £2k more than a Porsche Boxster.The car comes as standard with a six-speed manual gearbox; a twin-clutch S-tronic automatic transmission is a £1400 extra.Daytime running lights, adaptive magnetic ride dampers, 18in alloy wheels, two-tone leather seats, exclusive ‘S’ instruments and aluminium cabin trim are also part of the deal.

Our Verdict

Audi TT

The Audi TT remains a design icon, and is now a car that’s genuinely fun to drive no matter what engine or trim you choose

£3.5k for an extra 18 bhp and a few non-essential goodies, mmm... fools and their money...

Just get the lower priced one remapped for £500 for about 60bhp increase.

This is what forums are all about... good advise Gentlemen :-)

Or just buy a Z4 Coupe or Boxster instead!

Anyone considering a TTS please do contact me.

If you buy a 'normal' TT then pay me rather than Audi the £3,500 surcharge, I'll happily let you have the keys to my Coupe; hey presto an extra 220bhp and I throw in a free body shell and fittings!

Your Coupe - is it an 'R811 ***' reg in Portofino Blue? Looks a lot like my old motor...

17 February 2008

Sorry fella, she is a Portofino but not a R811 reg. Considering how few were sold here and how many must have been scrapped by now, I'm amazed how many I see on the road.

£194 per extra BHP, doe Audi seriously think about the customer! Thats a digusting amount of money for an 'S' bagde, just get a chip!

[quote Schwenck]Sorry fella, she is a Portofino but not a R811 reg.  Considering how few were sold here and how many must have been scrapped by now, I'm amazed how many I see on the road.[/quote] Its a great car, I had a red 16V Turbo followed by the Porto 20V Turbo which I only got rid of due to getting company car. Its amazing really that 10 years after my old 20V Turbo was first registered, the majority of coupe-style motors out there are slower, less 'bespoke', way more expensive and less economical. The 20V Turbo does 155mph, zero to 60 in just over 6 secs, has tremendous third-gear acceleration, a beautiful interior that still looks great today, decent economy and sounds fantastic --- yet you can pick one up for pennies (I only got £2k for mine, sold last year).

Get a remap for £500 and use the savings to spec the S line suspension, the 19 inch 255 35 ZR 19 wheels and tyres and the electronic /magnetic dampers and then it will be every bit as quick as the heavier TT-S and a lot cheaper too.
