AUDI has taken the wraps off a new high-performance TT series range-topper in the form of the TTS – and it will come to Australia in the third quarter this year, just in time for summer.

With more boost and beefed-up internals, Audi 2.0-litre TFSI engine in the TTS ramps up to 200kW of power and 350Nm of torque.

Even in detuned ‘hot weather’ trim, the 197kW output of Australian-spec car will still put it 50kW up on the regular turbocharged TT and 13kW up on the 3.2-litre V6 version.

Unveiled at the Detroit motor show in both coupe and convertible guises, the Audi TTS is distinguished by new bi-xenon headlights with a strip of white LED daylight running lights similar to those introduced on the A5/S5, and also a revised nose with bigger air intakes and a chrome-embellished platinum grille.

The new all-wheel drive range-toppers are expected to be priced around $100,000 in Australia.
