New Audi TT previewed in official design sketches

Audi gives TT a sharp new look and revised engines, plus new roadster version before the end of the year

The new Audi TT has been previewed in a series of official design sketches which reveal a car that continues to draw heavily on the Bauhaus-inspired design of the original, albeit with reinterpreted detailing aimed at giving it a more technical look than ever before.

Key among the changes brought to the latest TT coupé is the incorporation of more angular detailing. These official sketches reveal newly shaped headlamps, a sharper looking single-frame grille and reformed air ducts among other new styling elements.

In a move aimed at providing the TT with a closer family resemblance to the mid-engined R8, the four-ring Audi emblem has also been repositioned from the upper section of the grille to the leading edge of a signature clamshell style bonnet.

Traditional cues include prominent wheelarch flares, sizeable wheel houses, a defined shoulder line running the entire length of the flanks from the headlights through to the tail-lights, a heavily curved roofline, a liftback-style tailgate and a horizontal feature line bisecting the tail-lights to provide added visual width at the rear.
