| The Audi TT goes TDI! Following two victories by diesel-engined cars at Le Mans, this is one more sign that Audi wants to give its TDI a sporty image. |
The TT coupe and roadster will inherit the evolution of the 2.0 Common Rail 140 bhp engine which is fitted to the new A4 (and the VW Tiguan). A version using piezo-electric injectors, boosted to 170 bhp and 350 Nm. This enables 100 km/h to be reached in 7.5 seconds, with a top speed of 226 km/h for the coupe and 223 km/h for the roadster. Where fuel consumption is concerned, these Audi's need only 5.5 litres of diesel per 100 km. The P-Tronic engineers are already working on an increase to the performances f these models, which will go on sale in the summer.
