With lines reminiscent of the original, but refined to be taut, muscular, athletic and poised, the new Audi TT will be making its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show. For the third generation of the compact sports car, the designers have reinterpreted a host of ideas from the first TT generation from 1998 – in a dynamic, diverse way — including the positioning of the traditional four ring logo, which now sits centrally on the hood, echoing the R8.
Inside, the styling evokes the clean sports car character of the new Audi TT. The center console and door trims have flowing, matching shapes, while the dashboard resembles the wing of an aircraft. The round air vents, a classic TT feature, evoke the engines and incorporate the air conditioning controls. This solution – and the elimination of the central MMI monitor, now replaced by the Audi virtual cockpit – pave the way for the dashboard’s remarkably slim architecture.
The third generation of the Audi TT, the design icon, has been systematically refined in every department, both inside and out – resulting in a pedigree sports car. It is particularly notable for its sharper lines, which have been defined very dynamically and precisely. Throughout the entire car, the interplay of surfaces creates incredible tension.
