First sketches of the new Audi TT released ahead of Geneva Motor Show unveiling.
Good news, curvy sports car fans. The new Audi TT will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. In the meantime, a number of first sketch designs have been released to whet your appetite. Well, what are you waiting for?
While unmistakably a TT, a number of changes can be seen if you look closely. The Audi four rings now sit centrally on the bonnet as they do on the R8, while the grille is now flatter and broader. ‘Dominant horizontals’ and struts inside the air inlets help give the front end a chiselled look.
The new TT will feature LED headlights that can be upgraded to Matrix LED variants, which are said to be three times brighter than a standard high-beam LED.
All models have two large, round exhaust tailpipes unless you opt for the TTS and its four tailpipes. A thin brake light now runs between the two rear lights, part of which will remain permanently lit like daytime running lights.
The dashboard of the 2014 Audi TT is said to resemble ‘the wing of an aircraft’. The centrally-located MMI infotainment display has been replaced by a 12.3-inch TFT display that sits behind the steering where you would normally find dials. By reducing the visual clutter Audi hopes to create a much more driver-focussed environment.
An official list of engines or a price are yet to be confirmed. Unofficial rumblings say the flagship model will feature a reworked 2.5-litre that produces 375bhp. A 275bhp 2.0-litre turbo and smaller petrol and diesel options will also be available.
The new Audi TT will debut on March 6th, 2014. Scroll on down for the sketches.
