* Base TTS Roadster
The limited edition TTS Roadster Competition has 2.0 liter TFSI engine that churns out 272 horsepower. It has an electronically limited maximum speed of 155 mph.
Being an all-wheel drive, it offers great road stability and responsiveness during tight corners. Also, the fluid lines in the front of the car enhance the aerodynamics, providing improved downforce, producing better road grip.
The exterior design of the model carries on the legacy of the TTS series. Its front looks very similar to the classic TTS model featuring the generous grill that reaches down the front bumper and the rectangular shaped headlights.
Towards the rear of the car, a new rear wing has been installed. Also, a small and discreet spoiler has been placed right beneath the central breaking light.
Unlike previous models, the TTS Roadster will only have two seats. An overall black theme has been chosen for the 500 units with black leather seats and dark grey elements on the doors and central panel. Also, a new color touch screen can now be seen on the right side of the driver.
The 2013 Audi TTS Roadster Competition is an anniversary edition model. Even if the car will have a bigger engine, fuel consumption does not go over the top. It can work both as a city car or a competition roadster.
