It was in the Frankfurt Auto Show of 1995 that the world was totally stunned by a concept car from Audi. It was called the TT. We can't make any comments on the reaction that this car received
from the public. They say, you see, that a picture is worth a thousand words.
The TT actually made it into production only 3 years after its introduction as a concept car. And yes, it is a car that is as wonderful to
drive as it is to look at.
Audi really raised the standards in the small sports coupe class to a very high level. The 1.8 litre turbocharged 180bhp and 225 bhp versions bring the performance levels to another class.
The roadster version that followed the coupe in 1999, is another beatiful piece of automotive art.
The TT remains a hugely succesful car as far as sales are concerned too. Expect to face at least a 6
month waiting list before you get your hands on one.
There has been some speculation over the late '99-early 2000 recall of all Audi TT's in order for a rear wing spoiler to be added and some suspension
setttings changes to be made to the wonderful coupe, after owners expressed their concern over "strange" handling reactions in high speed cornering. It actually seems that perhaps Audi was a bit too early in bringing
the TT into production.
In anyway, we cannot look away from the fact that Audi actually had the guts to bring such a radically looking car into productiom. A radical car which still remains a super reliable, easy to
use every day car.
