The new range-topping 2019 Audi TT S has been revealed with the car slated for a local launch in the second quarter of 2019.
Boasting a range of upgrades and highlights, the new TT S looks the part with design elements in a matt aluminium silver look which shine in the Singleframe grille with a TT S badge and the matt titanium black insert.
There is also a new horizontal blade in the bumper which turns up at the ends to form narrow, upright funnels as well as the full-length front splitter, the vertical air inlets and the trim strips featuring the aluminium look.
The rear is dominated by the broadened diffuser with the four tailpipes of the exhaust system. There are also new 18-inch wheels with 18-, 19- and 20-inch wheels from Audi Sport available.
Two new paint colours will also be available known as pulse orange and turbo blue.
Internally the TT S now features an additional sport screen in the Audi virtual cockpit, S sport seats and coloured contrast stitching.
European delivered cars will be powered by 2.0-litre TFSI engine which develops 225kW of power and maximum torque of 400Nm between 2000 and 5300rpm which is 20Nm more than the predecessor. Australian delivered models may not be equipped with this engine due to our hot climate classification.
As standard, the engine is mated with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that sends power to Audi’s Quattro permanent all-wheel drive system.
Also standard are Audi’s magnetic ride controlled shock absorber system.
In coupe guise, the TT S accelerates to triple figures from a standing start in 4.5 seconds, which is slightly faster than the predecessor, whilst the roadster variant takes 4.8 seconds for the same dash. Both body styles have an electronically restricted top speed of 250km/h.
A TT S Competition edition will also be available which offers a sportier connotation with LED headlights, Audi rings laminated on the side sills, privacy glass (coupe only), a fixed rear wing, red brake calipers, 20-inch wheels in high-gloss black and other exterior details in gloss black. Glacier white, tango red and mythos black are available for the exterior paint finish.
Two leather upholstery and trim options are on offer, one in express red with contrasting stitching in granite grey or an ebony hue with contrasting stitching in express red. The seat trims and centre console come finished in slate grey chrome or tango red gloss (coupe only).
Other cabin highlights include the inside rings of the air vents painted red, the gear lever knob and steering wheel rim with red 12-o'clock marking covered in Alcantara. In addition, inlays in carbon come as a standard feature.
The new Audi TT and TT S are set to arrive Down Under in the second quarter of 2019 with local specifications and pricing to be announced closer to launch. Stay tuned!
