The new Audi TT 2.0 TDI quattro -
Powerful performance with maximum efficiency
Ingolstadt - Audi is once again
setting standards, this time with the new Audi TT and its TDI
engine—a model that combines pure sportiness and powerful
performance with sensational efficiency. The Audi TT 2.0 TDI
Coupe quattro and Audi TT Roadster 2.0 TDI quattro are the first
series-production sports cars to feature diesel engines.
It’s a compelling union: The
two-liter engine generates dynamic propulsion with 125 kW (170
hp) and 350 Nm (258.15 lb-ft) of torque, yet the TT Coupe and TT
Roadster consume an average of only 5.3 liters and 5.5 liters of
fuel per 100 km (44.38 mpg and 42.77 mpg)
respectively—unparalleled in the sports car segment.
Audi is setting the pace with this
synthesis of excellent dynamism and low fuel consumption, as it
has done for many years:
Since debuting in 1989 the TDI
engines from the brand with the four rings have been paving the
way for the world’s most successful efficiency technology and
acting as trendsetters for the entire automobile industry.
Today, these powerful, refined and highly fuel-efficient engines
represent a modern, smart take on sportiness. The run of
victories achieved by the Audi R10 TDI diesel race car at the Le
Mans 24 Hours and in the American Le Mans Series are impressive
evidence of the tremendous potential of this technology.
The dynamic diesel engines from
Audi exert an exciting impact not just in racing but also in
series-production models—and now indeed in a sports car. The TT
Coupe quattro with the 2.0 TDI sprints from zero to 100 km/h
(62.14 mph) in 7.5 seconds and achieves a top speed of 226 km/h
(140.43 mph). The Audi TT Roadster, likewise equipped with
quattro permanent all-wheel drive, requires only an extra tenth
of a second for the standard sprint, and continues up to a top
speed of 223 km/h (138.57 mph). Both versions serve as
outstanding examples of the success of the Audi efficiency
strategy, thanks to their fuel efficiency ratings of 5.5 liters
per 100 km (42.77 mpg), a figure that corresponds to CO2
emissions of only 145 grams/km.
