2015 Audi TT Roadster loses its roof in Paris

Auto Tech
[MUSIC] About 6 months ago at the Geneva auto show that [INAUDIBLE] 3rd generation [INAUDIBLE] 2015 model, now 6 months later we've got the roadster version. Just in time for winter. The roadster does away with the token rear seats found in the hard top. Instead you can have power soft top, which is made of magnesium and aluminum components, saving some 6 pounds over the previous version, the convertible. But still you're gonna pay about a 200 pound penalty over the hard top version, weighs about 2,900 pounds. The interior of the roadster's much the same as in the hard top, minus the obvious difference, of course. We're sitting in an S model, which gives nice quilted leather seats, and a lot of other little interior details. Separated from the face model. But the most important piece is this 12.3 inch virtual dashboard situated here behind the steering wheel. You get all the information that you need through this one display including speed, engine RPM, it's controlled by the Audi MMI system. This touch wheel here that we have owned and loved with our other cars. Works great here and Vidia power gives you plenty of performance so it's nice and responsive. This is one of the coolest pieces of car tech we've seen in a long long time. There will be two motors on option for the TT Roadster. Base would be a four cylinder turbocharged diesel motor. 180 horsepower and 55 miles per gallon. This one's got the petrol version if I can get the hood open here. Also four cylinder, also turbocharged. Putting out 310 horsepower, consumption drops to about 30 miles per gallon. But it will get you from zero to 60 in about 4.9 seconds, which is pretty respectable. Base transmission will be a six speed manual, but there will be a dual clutch six speed available as well, if you want to pay a little extra for it. US pricing has not been announced, but look at about 39,000 Euro in the UK to start. They're gonna probably be expecting something in the mid 40s, the US when it's available early next year. Here's Steve at the Paris auto show looking at the new Audio. [INAUDIBLE]
