Audi TT Roadster
Price: Starting at $46,400
Audi’s front-engine 2-seat convertible, the TT Roadster is all-new for 2016 with more focus on the elements of a true sports car. The new design ties the TT closer to the R8 front fascia with a broader, flatter Singleframe grille and standard LED headlights, while retaining signature elements from the original design including the exaggerated wheel arches that push into the hood cutline, round exhaust tips and prominent gas filler door. The TT Roadster is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter TFSI 4-cylinder engine that produces 220 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, combined with a 6-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission with quattro all-wheel drive. The new quattro all-wheel-drive system varies the amount of torque delivered to the front and rear axles based on measuring traction at all four wheels 150 times per 10 milliseconds. For the first time quattro can be controlled by the Audi drive select system, and when in dynamic mode more power gets delivered to the rear wheels.
