It is available to order now in 2.0 T FSI front-wheel-drive and 3.2 quattro forms with on-the-road prices starting from £26,915 and £31,535.
Customers can choose from six-speed manual and six-speed S tronic transmissions available for both engine versions.
Operation of the Roadster’s new roof is now completely ‘hands-free’, with no need to attach or detach the hood to or from the windscreen rail. Full opening or closing takes 12 seconds and can be carried out at speeds of up to 19mph.
The new T Roadster also includes an electrically powered rear spoiler which helps to increase down force on the rear of the car, and retracts to sit flush with the body when not required.
Standard equipment includes powered roof and wind deflector operation, sports seats with leather and Alcantara mix upholstery for 2.0 TFSI versions or full leather for the V6, electronic climate control, a new generation MP3-compatible audio system with single CD player, an RS 4-style flat-bottomed leather-rimmed steering wheel and a Driver’s Information System (DIS).
In addition to full leather upholstery, V6 versions add front seat heating, an enhanced braking system, an exterior light styling pack and quattro four-wheel-drive. Alloy wheels are 17-inch Trapez design in the 2.0 TFSI or 18-inch 10-spoke design in the V6.
The convertible TT goes on sale in the UK in April.
