The new Audi TT Coupé is offering a Tiptronic automatic option for the first time. The new TT Coupé 178bhp is now available to order priced at £20,725 OTR, or £22,125 OTR in automatic form.
Standard equipment includes 16-inch seven spoke alloy wheels, leather and Alcantara upholstered sports seats, electronic climate control, a leather-upholstered sports steering wheel (with tiptronic shift controls for automatic models) and a Driver’s Information System.
Thanks to the Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) and Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) traction control, the 1.8-litre turbo charged four-cylinder engine channels its power to the front wheels.
Via the standard five-speed manual gearbox, the unit carries the sports car from rest to 62mph in 7.8 seconds and, on to a top speed of 142mph. With the latest six-speed Tiptronic automatic gearbox installed, the same sprint can be covered in 8.4 seconds, and maximum speed tails off only slightly to 140mph.
