The new TTS Roadster combines the dynamic ride of a sports car with the driving experience of an open-top two-seater.

Audi has unveiled the TTS Roadster which will make its official debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show.

"The concept of designing a compact roadster following clear geometrical rules formed the original idea for the Audi TT in autumn 1994," says Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Board Member for Technical Development at AUDI AG: "From the first generation on, it has been a sports car for the senses - a driving machine with an authentic design. With the new TT Roadster, we have developed this concept in a consistent manner and further improved the technical experience in the car with innovations such as the Audi virtual cockpit."

The new TTS Roadster combines the dynamic ride of a sports car with the driving experience of an open-top two-seater. The basis for this consists of struts in the underbody and body that considerably improve both the torsional rigidity and the ride comfort.

The 2015 Audi TTS Roadster is sporty, compact and low-slung stance on the road. At 164.4 inches, the two-seater is 0.8 inches shorter than its predecessor. Featuring a width of 72.1 inches, the new TTS Roadster is 0.4 inches narrower than its predecessor and has a height of 53.3 inches (0.1 inch less). Its drag coefficient is only 0.30 with the top closed - number one in the compact sports car segment.

The quattro permanent all-wheel drive has been fully redeveloped; it is fitted as standard on the TTS Roadster. During regular driving, its electrohydraulic multi-plate clutch optimally distributes the drive torque between the front and rear axle depending on driving conditions, road characteristics and driver type.

Audi TTS Roadster's Exterior Design

The front of the open-top sports car conveys power and energy through its accentuated horizontal lines. Similar to the Audi R8, the Singleframe grille is wide and flat - the four rings are positioned on the hood in the style of a high-performance sports car. On the standard version, the air inlets are connected to one another and divided by two vertical slats.

Two vertical lighting elements are also positioned in the headlights and emit the daytime running lights. Audi optionally supplies the headlights in LED technology. The headlights will also be available in the new Matrix LED technology shortly after the market launch - in this case, the high beam is produced by small, individually controlled light emitting diodes. In the Matrix LED headlights, the indicator featuring a dynamized display - another brand innovation - runs in the direction selected by the driver.

When viewed from the side, many of the details invoke the first generation of the design classic. The shoulders have a muscular look and the sill contour forms a strong light-refracting edge. The broad wheel arches form their own geometric entities.

At the rear, horizontal lines again underscore the width of the open-top sports car. The bars in the standard LED rear lights, which adopt the motif of the headlights, are permanently illuminated. The third brake light - a flat strip on the edge of the luggage compartment lid - connects the light silhouette at the rear. A diffuser incorporates the tailpipes of the exhaust system. At speeds of 74 mph (120 km/h) and above, a spoiler is electrically extended from the luggage compartment lid to provide additional downforce on the rear axle.

As with all Audi Cabriolet models, the new TTS Roadster also features an electrically actuated fabric top. The electric drive with the two electric motors performs opening and closing in 10 seconds, even when driving at speeds of up to around 30 mph (50 km/h).
