The Audi TT 8J is the successor to the first Audi TT and was presented on April 6, 2006 at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin , Germany, and presented from April 7, 2006 at the AMI Leipzig. When the estate coupe was launched in 2006, the roadster variant appeared in March 2007 .


The Audi TT 8J was a completely new vehicle developed on the platform of the Audi A3 8P presented in 2003 , on the basis of which the VW Golf V and Touran I had also been developed. Accordingly, numerous technical innovations were presented: With the second TT generation, the Audi magnetic ride adaptive damper system was offered as an option for the first time . In addition, a further development of the ASF (Audi Space Frame) was used, a material combination of aluminum and steel that made the vehicle lighter while at the same time increasing stability.

The 2.0-liter turbo engine (in-line four-cylinder) with 147 kW (200 hp) and the 3.2-liter VR6 with 184 kW (250 hp) were available at the start of sales . Both could be combined with the S tronic dual clutch transmission (formerly DSG). As an entry-level engine, the newly developed 1.8-liter TFSI engine with 118 kW (160 PS) was presented in spring 2008, while a 2.0-liter diesel engine with 125 kW (170 PS) was also presented.


The facelift of the TT, which was sold from the end of May 2010, was presented at the AMI 2010 .

Externally, the front and rear of the TT have been changed somewhat, the headlights have been revised and new paint finishes are available. The interior also shows only small changes such as applications and new interior colors.

There were several changes in engine technology. The 3.2-l VR6 was dropped from the range and the 147 kW 2.0 TFSI was replaced by the 155 kW engine from the VW Golf VI GTI , which was also equipped with two liters of displacement, and the Audi had one as in the A4 / A5 variable valve control, which provides 70 Nm more torque than the engine in the Golf GTI.

Model base

Technically, the first generation of the Audi TT, like the VW Golf IV and the Audi A3 8L, was based on the VW PQ34 platform , with the rear torsion beam axle of the Golf models being replaced by an independent suspension with longitudinal and control arms in the quattro models .

The technology known from the Golf V and the Audi A3 8P (VW platform PQ35 ) is used for the second generation of the Audi TT . But it was heavily modified because of the significantly larger wheels. The front axle has largely newly developed MacPherson struts with offset swivel bearings, the rear axle is a four-link construction. In order to achieve a weight distribution of 58:42, two thirds of the Audi spaceframe (ASF) was made of aluminum.

Also new is the optional Audi magnetic ride , a special magneto-rheological shock absorber oil that enables the damping properties to be dynamically adapted to the respective driving situation. The adjustment is controlled by an externally influenceable magnetic field, whereby the oil with metal particles in the shock absorbers changes its viscosity and thus its hardness.

As with the A3, the quattro all-wheel drive of the TT does not have the Torsen differential gear that is typical of Audi , but has been taken over from the VW Golf 4Motion with Haldex clutch .

Audi TTS Coupé
Audi TTS Roadster

The TTS is the sport version of the Audi TT and a throwback to the NSU TTS ; it was presented in the second quarter of 2008. The 2-liter TFSI unit with 200 kW (272 hp) is used as the engine. According to the factory specifications, the vehicle takes 5.2 s (Coupé) or 5.3 s (Roadster) from 0 to 100 km / h. The entire intake tract, the exhaust system and the turbocharger have been revised and thus optimized or enlarged in cross-section. A magnetic ride sports chassis is used as standard . The add-on parts have been completely revised. The front apron, rear diffuser and side skirts are specially designed for the TTS. As usual with the S models, the TTS has aluminum-colored mirror caps. The exhaust system has two branches with four oval tailpipes. An exhaust flap is used to comply with the legal guidelines regarding volume in urban areas. The ESP can be regulated in two stages, but cannot be switched off completely. The headlights have been redesigned and contain LED daytime running lights that consist of twelve LEDs. In addition to a six-speed manual transmission, the S tronic automated dual clutch transmission is available at an additional cost . In addition, the TTS has significantly larger brake discs than the less powerful model variants in order to counteract a decrease in the braking force (fading effect) during prolonged use despite the higher engine power.


Audi TT RS Coupé
Audi TT RS Roadster

The TT RS is the most powerful and fastest sports variant of the Audi TT; it was presented in the first quarter of 2009.

It is powered by a heavily modified inline five-cylinder, taken from the US model of the VW Jetta, which is a 2.5-liter TFSI with an output of 250 kW (340 hp). High-strength vermicular graphite cast iron for the crankcase, cast aluminum pistons, forged connecting rods, sodium-filled exhaust valves, and 42 degrees hydraulically adjustable camshafts with two-stage chain drive, TFSI injection technology and steel tie rods, which are derived from the cylinder head (derived from the V10 engine of the R8 and the crankcase are screwed through, in conjunction with the unusually large turbocharger, the unit has a comparatively low weight and a maximum torque of 450 Nm, which is continuously available in the speed range between 1600 and 5300 rpm.

With a manual 6-speed gearbox, the vehicle accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.6 s (Coupé) or 4.7 s (Roadster) and reaches 200 km / h in 15.9 s (Coupé) or 16.9 s (roadster). In addition to the manual 6-speed gearbox, an S tronic 7-speed dual clutch transmission has also been available since September 2010 . With this, the TT RS accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.3 s (Coupé) or 4.4 s (Roadster) thanks to optimized shift times without interruption of tractive power.

Externally, the TT RS stands out from the other variants of the series with a radiator grille with a shiny black diamond grille and bumper with enlarged air inlets at the front, a high-performance brake system with 370 mm composite discs at the front and a diffuser insert and a fixed rear wing in the rear. The exhaust system has two pipes and two large oval tailpipes. In addition, the exhaust systems are equipped with switching flaps. The characteristics of the exhaust system can be changed and set using the sports button in the center console.

Additional data on boost pressure, oil temperature and lap time can be called up via the driver information system; Bucket seats are available on request. With a "sport button", the response to accelerator pedal movements can be increased.

The top speed of the TT RS is electronically limited to 250 km / h as standard, but can be limited to 280 km / h ex works for an extra charge. The power is transmitted to all four wheels via the Haldex coupling (taken from the Golf).
