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.

    Sixth-generation Mustang gets a leaner face, revised suspension, improved safety equipment and a more power V8. We see how it fares on southern French roads

    Fully-loaded, big-hitting diesel CLS shows the potential perils of ticking too many options boxes on your order form. A good car with a bad suspension combination.

    Super saloon deploys four-wheel drive to improve every facet of its driving experience. Faster and more capable than any, and more exciting than most, of its celebrated predecessors

    More power and an intoxicating soundtrack have breathed new life into our love affair with the biggest, baddest Range Rover Sport variant

    The new Vantage has been developed as a Porsche 911 beater, and our first taste on UK roads suggests it can live up to that bold claim
