Before the TT RS came along in 2009, the Audi TTS was the top-of-the-range TT model.

Under the hood lies a 2-litre turbocharged 4 cylinder engine producing 272 hp. This power source, coupled with either a conventional 6 speed manual gearbox, or 6 speed, dual clutch, S-Tronic transmission allows the Audi TTS to hit 60 mph in just over 5 seconds (5.4 Manual, 5.2 S-Tronic).

The standard-specification quattro permanent all-wheel drive in the TTS features an electronically controlled and hydraulically operated multi-plate clutch, which now works even faster than ever thanks to a new pressure reservoir. If required, all of the drive force can be redirected from the front to the rear wheels within a matter of milliseconds. To make allowance for the high torque (258 lb-ft @ 2500 - 5000 rpm) produced by the turbocharged engine in the TTS, the drive train has been reinforced where required.

Audi has opted for a McPherson front suspension with lower triangular wishbones for the TTS. The suspension is largely made of aluminum, thereby reducing the unsprung weight. The TTS is also fitted with Audi magnetic ride adaptive suspension which uses a special fluid containing minute magnetic particles inside the dampers. At the flick of a switch the viscosity of the fluid can be altered to change the driving experience. In the TTS there are two suspension settings. In “Normal” mode, when oil viscosity is high, the car offers a well-balanced, comfortable ride. In the “Sport” setting, meaning low viscosity, the TTS harnesses all of the potential of its sports suspension, while also lowering the body by 10 millimeters (0.39 inches).

To help reduce the overall weight the body of the Audi TTS uses a hybrid construction method with the rear end being formed from conventional steel, and the front and center sections created from lightweight aluminium.

The Audi TTS has several exterior modifications to help it stand out as the flagship of the TT model line. One of the design highlights is undoubtedly the headlights newly designed bixenon units featuring a horizontal strip of white LEDs that serve as daytime running lights. The single-frame grill in a platinum gray finish is embellished with slender chrome strips, while large air intakes in the restyled front apron add to the performance feel.

When viewed in profile, the large 18-inch wheels and widened, deeper door sills are apparent. As well as a muscular rear bumper, a gray-colored diffuser trim, plus two sets of twin tailpipes protruding from the left and the right side. The spoiler on the TTS extends automatically when the speed reaches 74.5 mph (120 km/h) and retracts again when it drops back to 50 mph (80 km/h).

Inside the Audi TTS are figure hugging sports seats covered as standard in leather and Alcantara. The sports seats are optionally available in Silk Nappa leather upholstery. There is also the option of the Impulse leather package, comprising black trim with silver stitching in the Coupe or chennai brown trim with espresso-colored contrast stitching in the Roadster. As always, Audi's virtually unparalleled build quality is also to be found.
