Get a first look at the Audi TT Roadster, with retractable cloth top and rear spoiler, from the 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Coming available in early 07 the Audi TT freshly revised now available as a roadster, hot little ticket. Let me tell you a little bit about the top because that's interesting. A lot of cars are going to a retractable hardtop these days. That's kind of a style dejure. But they decided to stay with a cloth top that folds down completely flat in the mid section here very much reminiscent of the Porsche Boxster. They have these motorized wings on the side here that allow it to be very flush and a semi hard shell cover. You got these nice polished headrests that remain, of course, for rollover protection. Other details on this vehicle are the engine. There's a 2 liter turbo 4 good for 200 horsepower or there's the V6 3.2 liter good for 250 just like on the hardtop version of the same car. I see the Audi MMI interface there for telematics for the audio, the navigation and the entertainment climate control as well. The top goes up and down in 12 seconds either direction. So, that's kind of the new, the new speed race these days is how fast can each maker get their top up or down, also retractable rear spoiler that goes up and down around 70 miles per hour. This car again comes available early 07 TT Roadster. ^M00:01:09 [ Music ]
