2008 Audi TT Quattro

2008 Audi TT Quattro

Audi unveiled the TT quattro 2.0 TDI, a new version of the TT sports car powered by an all-new 2.0 liter TDI engine. The engine is available on the Coupe and Roadster versions.

The two-litre engine generates dynamic propulsion of 258.15 hp and 170 lb.-ft. of torque, but the TT Coupe and TT Roadster consume an average of only 5.3 liters and 5.5 liters of fuel per 100 km (44 , 42.77 mpg and 38 mpg), respectively - without precedent in the segment of sports car.

Audi is once again setting standards, this time with the new Audi TT and its TDI-engine model that combines powerful and pure sportsmanship sensational performance effectively. The Audi TT coupe 2.0 TDI quattro and Audi TT Roadster 2.0 TDI quattro is the first mass production of sports cars typical of diesel engines. It is an imperative Union:

The two-litre engine generates dynamic propulsion of 125 kW (170 hp) and 350 Nm (258.15 lb-ft) of torque, the TT Coupe and TT Roadster and consume an average of only 5.3 and 5.5 liters litres of fuel per 100 km (Mpg 44.38 and 42.77 mpg), respectively-unprecedented in the segment of sports car.

Audi is the pace with this excellent summary of dynamism and low fuel consumption, as it has done for many years: since its inception in 1989, the TDI engines of the brand with the four rings were paving the way for the The most vivid proof of efficiency and technology serving as the tone for the entire automotive industry. Today, these powerful, sophisticated and highly fuel-efficient engines represent a smart modern take on sportsmanship. The term victories achieved by Audi R10 TDI diesel race car at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and in the American Le Mans Series are impressive evidence of the enormous potential of this technology.

The dynamics of diesel Audi stimulating exercise influence not only in the races, but also in the series production models-and now, in fact in a sports car. The TT Coupe Quattro 2.0 TDI with the sprint from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 km/h) in 7.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 226 km / h (140.43 km/h) . The Audi TT Roadster, similarly equipped with quattro permanent all-wheel drive, requires only an extra tenth of a second for the standard sprint, and continues to a top speed of 223 km/h (138.57 km/h). Both versions serve as outstanding examples of the success of the strategy effectively Audi, thanks to their energy efficiency ratings of 5.5 litres per 100 km (42.77 mpg), a number that corresponds to CO2 emissions only 145 g/km.
Powerful, refined and efficient: The 2.0 TDI

The new system of common-rail injection is equipped with very modern piezo injectors, whose eight-hole injection nozzles can perform up to five separate sequences injection per cycle. This fine degree of modulation creates a modest increase in the pressure in the combustion chambers, which has significantly reduced the noise level. The system of 1800 bar pressure fuel can form a fine dispersion, allowing precise, highly efficient combustion.

The turbocharger is also part of a new generation, and works with adjustable blades that allow the couple to build quickly. The positions of swirl flaps on the intake manifold are controlled by electric motors, in order to adjust the airflow to the current load and engine speed. The geometry of piston engine has been modified, and the acoustics of the drive belt of camshaft have been modernized. Just as they did in the previous model, two balance shafts to reduce vibrations that arise in the crankshaft drive.

The cumulative result of these advances is a high engine speed of 5000 rpm and, more importantly, the improvement of thermodynamics in the combustion chambers. This means that the engine can run on a maximum of 60 percent of the exhaust gas recycling, which has been carefully cooled radiator. This results in a drastic reduction of NOx untreated, with the 2.0 TDI already reached the threshold values of the future Euro 5.
Dynamic road performance

The 2.0 TDI in the Audi TT Coupe and the Audi TT Roadster delivers 125 kW (170 hp) at 4200 rpm and sends a full 350 Nm (258.15 lb-ft) of torque to the engine crankshaft at speeds between 1750 and 2500 rpm. Quiet operation and low vibration, the model provides a great amount of electricity as low rpm and is very sensitive to the input from the accelerator. His supreme power in the development of this engine produces its own unique, fascinating, as a strong, intelligent motor sports.

The Audi TT Coupe 2.0 TDI quattro easily leaves gasoline power behind the competition during acceleration and judgement. The sprint from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 km/h) in only 7.5 seconds and never looks back until it reaches 226 kph (140.43 mph). The TT Roadster accelerates to 100 km/h (62.14 km/h) in 7.7 seconds and keeps up to 223 kph (138.57 mph).

These models of the first sports car diesel consume an average of only 5.3 liters and 5.5 liters of fuel per 100 km (44.38 and 42.77 mpg mpg), respectively, corresponding to emission CO2 of only 140 g/km and 145 G/km. In doing so, they have established a benchmark that represents a real quantum leap in the segment of sports car. With the TDI engine in the TT series, Audi establishes once again his role as the market leader in diesel. The brand with the four rings is progress and starting from the top.

In keeping with the theme of athletic performance, Audi has combined his two diesel engines of sports cars with highly effective six-speed manual transmission with short trip lever allows the driver to move quickly, easily and accurately. The housings for these transmissions are made of lightweight, high-tech materials magnesium. Relatively long final reports of transmission were used to put the transmission in line with the TDI engine.

In light of their high torque values, Audi is to equip two of its new models TT quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The heart of this system is electronically controlled, hydraulically actuated multi-plate clutch, which is located at the rear of the car for better weight distribution. This usually clutch distributes up to 85 percent of engine power to the front axle and 15 percent for the rear axle, in extreme situations, it can divert up to 100 percent of the power either to the axle.

Efforts to reduce the weight of vehicles are also part of the strategy effectiveness of the four rings mark. Both sports cars are very light: 2 + 2 seating TT Coupe weighs about 1370 kg (3020.33 pounds) when empty, while the two-seater TT Roadster with hood weighs about 1415 kg (3119.54 pounds ). Behind these low body weight is an innovative hybrid construction developed by Audi. Front components are made of aluminum and the use of space technology Frame; rear components are made of steel. This solution ensures that the context is as rigid as possible and optimize load distribution between the axles.

The Audi TT Coupe and TT Roadster are dynamic, emotion-packed sports cars. As was the case with previous models, these cars are impressive for their powerful design, which continues the momentum on flows inwards. The cockpit nods contains multiple grounds of the circle, and the sport steering wheel with his flat bottom rim is the part of the driver like a glove. The sport seats are deeply set, offering a sitting position and strong support sporting side. The back of the rear seats, twice in the TT Coupe, the trunk space will increase from 290 to 700 cubic litres (10.24 - 24.72 cubic feet). The Roadster (250 litres, 8.83 cubic feet) comes with a practice-through hatch loading upon request.

The sport suspension also extraordinarily dynamic features. The front suspension is pivoted on an aluminum subframe and has extensive runway is 1572 mm (61.89 inches).

A very precise steering rack directly with a system of steering ratio provides a strong link between the driver and the road. Attending servo steering, which decreases as the speed increases, is generated by an electromechanical drive that is even more effective than hydraulic pump.

The coil springs and shock absorbers in the four-link rear axle are located in separate areas. Links are also finely differentiated: The layout of the trailing links, which absorb the forces of propulsion and braking is relatively soft to promote a comfortable ride. Connections to cross three links per wheel, however, are rigid in order to direct the forces in the body with precision.

The Audi TT coupe 2.0 TDI quattro and Audi TT Roadster 2.0 TDI quattro roll, the 16-inch, equipped with cast aluminum wheels with 255/55 R16 tyres. Behind the wheels are big disc brakes with platelets, which develop high friction coefficients. The stabilisation programme ESP supports the neutral to slightly understeering feel the TT-the finishing touch to an overall picture of the dynamics of exciting, exhilarating driving pleasure and stability, you can count.

Audi magnetic ride, a high-tech shock absorber system available as an option, is an adaptive system that resolves the traditional conflict of interest between comfort and handling. A magneto-rheological fluid circulating in the shock absorber change the direction of the magnetic particles within milliseconds when electricity is applied, changing the general characteristics of the fluid and, in turn, alters the damping characteristics. The driver can choose between "Normal" and "Sport" programs flipping a switch.

Standard equipment for both new models TT reflects the sporty and sophisticated in the series. Faux aluminum accents to add a glow grey inlays and various other components within. The steering wheel sport comes with a leather cover wallet. The system climate control (standard for the TT Coupe) regulates heating and ventilation depending on the level of sunlight. The driver and the information system chorus audio system complement the standard equipment.

A wide range of high-tech equipment is available in the form of options, including a very modern generation of audio gear, electrically adjustable front seats, adaptive light dynamic cornering light system and two navigation systems with a user interface based on the Audi MMI concept-a cup above the competition.
