Audi TT 3.2: dynamic through and through

A 17-inch dual-piston brake system adapted from the version used on the RS 4 assures an appropriate braking performance. There are floating-caliper brakes with ventilated 334 millimetre brake discs at the front. The rear wheels are fitted with floating-caliper brakes with 265 millimetre ventilated brake discs. In common with all TT models, the new 3.2 quattro has ESP with integral brake assist.

The dynamism of the new top-of-the-range TT version is moreover outwardly in evidence. The main changes compared with the other TT models are the modified rear spoiler and the front apron with enlarged inlet openings and lateral gills. The larger rear spoiler further reduces rear-end lift, in line with the performance gain of the TT 3.2 quattro.

The front apron now incorporates larger openings to cover the higher demand for cooling air, without the aerodynamic properties being affected. The drag coefficient remains unchanged at Cd = 0.32.

The TT 3.2 quattro in addition has xenon lights as standard with range control and titanium-coloured headlight trims. Inside, as well as the shift paddles on the steering wheel this version is distinguished by a gearbox gate in polished aluminium and an instrument panel insert with a speedometer extending as far up as 280 km/h.

The market launch is scheduled for mid-2003.
