2015 Audi TT drops its top – TT & TTS Roadster for Paris debut

The Audi TTS Roadster (pictured) debuts at Paris 2014

It’s only six months since the new Audi TT arrived at the Geneva Motor Show, but now Audi is ready to show its drop-top version with a debut of the Audi TT Roadster scheduled for the Paris Motor Show next week. As you’d expect, to all intents and purposes, the TT (and TT S) Roadster are pretty much the same as the TT Coupe, with the top chopped off and replaced by a retractable fabric roof – a roof that opens and closes in just 10 seconds – and a bump in price of around £2,000.

That means the Audi TT Roadster with the 2.0 litre TFSI engine with 182bhp, manual ‘box and Sport trim will come in at a bit under £32,000 and the 306bhp TTS Roadster at a bit under £38,000.

The same whistles and bells are on offer as in the coupe, with Audi’s new 12.3″ virtual cockpit screen replacing the traditional analogue instruments as well as SatNav, alloys (bigger on the TTS), Adaptive dampers, Bluetooth and lower suspension for the TTS.

There will be more TT models following on from the Roadster, with the TT-RS expected in 2015 and even a high-riding TT as previewed by the Allroad Shooting Brake Concept.

The new TT and TTS Roadster debut at Paris next week and will go on sale in November, with first deliveries expected in spring 2015 – just in time for some decent weather (we hope).
