The 2009 Audi TTS is supposedly the ‘S’ of the TT, but falls slightly short

Its base model, the Audi TT came with a 3.2 liter V6 engine that gets you up to 250 horsepowers. Hence, the German Audi scientists decided that in order to give something better, they have come up with the TTS engine which gets you up to 265 horses and 315 in its 2.0 liter TFSI 4 cylinder engine. They upgraded all the engine block, the pistons, the cylinder head and its connecting rods to achieve this. the TTS comes either with the coupe or the roadster versions.

Of course, judging by its base model, this one is surely faster and more powerful where it gets you from zero to hundred in 4.9 seconds and top speeds at 155 mph. The car is fitted with the Quatto all-wheel drive system and is 0.4 inches lower as compared with the V6 version. On top of that, it is also 30 pounds less lighter which lets you get around pretty much quicker. It also comes with an adjustable magnetic-ride suspension with huge lower air intakes as well as quad-tip exhaust pipes.

One big difference between the TT and the TTS is that the original comes with 6 speed manual transmission while the latter is only available in the 6 speed dual clutch S-Tronic transmission although being the ‘S’ version, a manual gearbox would have been perfect.

Essentially, the TTS is supposedly the enhanced or ‘S’ version of the TT but many critics felt that Audi could have done more to beef up the car, otherwise it might fall short of the more established Audi tuners who could take the TT and make a monster out of it. If that happens, the TTS could be pretty much redundant, but otherwise this car do look great in any garage, any porch, any road.
