Third generation TT catches the eye
The latest TT Coupe features a fully digital cockpit.
The Audi TT was first introduced to Africa in 2000 and signaled the new era for Audi design in the early 2000’s. The first generation was fairly popular in South Africa having sold 1,968 units between 2000 and 2006. It was followed by the second generation Audi TT which was a design departure from the first generation, but saw the TT take on an elegant silhouette. This model sold a total of 2,840 units in the southern African market. The model range consisted of a Coupé and Roadster, as well as performance models, the TTS and TTRS.
The third generation Audi TT Coupé has taken many of its design cues from the first generation car. The contour of the sills create a striking refracting edge, while the broad wheel arches form their own geometric bodies. The front wheel arch breaches the line of the bonnet, which continues over the door as a tornado line and runs almost horizontally through to the tail as a strong body shoulder. Its rear design and twin tailpipes are also positioned closer to the middle of the vehicle, reminiscent of the first generation Audi TT.
Specifically at the tail, horizontal lines and twin tailpipes underline the impression of the new TT’s sporty width. The third brake light is an extremely narrow strip positioned under the edge of the rear spoiler and plays an essential part in defining the tail light silhouette.
