2012 Audi TT Dynamic Digital Brochure
No longer do you have to request or download an Audi TT brochure. Our digital brochure lets you explore these innovative technologies, right now, right here.
The secret to making a bold entrance.
You're not the type who has to go looking for extra attention—it finds you anyway. That's why you're drawn to the TT. If the iconic design draws envious looks, so be
it. You have better things to think about. Like the way your TT intimately connects you to the road or the way it makes your pulse race every time you carve through the
apex of a mountain road.1
And when you consider the attention to detail like brushed aluminum decorative inlays and perfectly placed bolsters on the luxurious standard leather and Alcantara® seating surfaces, it all becomes even more irresistible. Add to all of that a collection of innovative technologies designed to keep you on top of your game, and you'll surely think the TT was tailor-made for you.
.01 – Audi quattro® / 0–60 mph in 5.3 seconds1,2
Thirty-plus years of quattro® technology has brought you this—all-wheel drive with a focus on superior handling. Experience confidence-inspiring
performance like you've never felt before.
.02 – ASF® Aluminium Space Frame
Using a combination of aluminum and steel cuts down significantly on weight, while helping maintain strength and increasing rigidity. Lighter body weight works with
TT performance systems to help give you quicker acceleration, improved braking and exceptional handling.
1 Always obey local speed and traffic laws. 2 TT Coupe: 0–60 mph in 5.3 seconds. TT Roadster: 0–60 mph in 5.6 seconds.
Doesn't ask for looks. Steals them.
Stir the senses. Go beyond sheet metal and find soul. That's what your TT was born to do. And nothing is more electrifying than one look at the TT. Every line comes at you
with purpose. The dramatic profile is unmistakable, and the high-gloss black Audi Singleframe® grille, pronounced wheel arches and air inlets work in concert to highlight
the highly assertive design. And with distinctive LED daytime running light technology announcing your arrival, there will be no doubt who is showing up.
The first thing you'll notice is an interior design like no other. As you look around you'll also discover how it closely follows the distinctive design ethos of Audi. A driver-oriented cockpit welcomes you as you enter. Luxurious standard leather and Alcantara® seating surfaces offer bolstering in all the right places. While metallic inlays give it a modern, clean feel, and a multifunction sport steering wheel helps keep you in full command. This is luxury with more than enough character.
.03 – Xenon Plus Headlights with LED Daytime Running Light Technology
Look sharp, with standard xenon plus headlights complemented by 24 LED clusters, one for each hour of Audi domination at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
.04 – Aluminum-trimmed Pedals
A solid look, and grippy to the touch, aluminum-trimmed pedals call attention to the vehicle's performance roots while adding a little more style for your feet to appreciate.
.05 – Flat-bottom, Aluminum-trimmed Steering Wheel
Further expressing its sports car DNA is a steering wheel designed for spirited driving.
.06 – Aluminum Trim Accents
Adding to the overall sophistication of the interior are aluminum trim accents and brushed aluminum decorative inlays.
Remove obstacles to your happiness.
Sometimes you want to think in terms of SPF as much as RPM. Top down, with the sun flooding the cabin, you find the easy charms of the TT Roadster with the touch of a button.
Better yet, you don't have to worry about the RPMs either, because the sports car heritage of the TT Roadster delivers them too. Take on the open road with joyful abandon.
Because in here, you can always act on your impulses. Rain or shine.
Just as arresting as the exterior styling, the TT Roadster interior offers sophistication with more than a dollop of sports car panache and luxury. The available high-touch baseball optic leather seating surfaces offer superior support, and elevate the cabin's distinctiveness.
.07 – Retractable Acoustic Soft Top
Designed with special noise dampening properties, the TT Roadster offers a top constructed of canvas, lightweight aluminum, and steel. It opens with a simple
push of a button and can be closed at speeds under 31 MPH.
Let the sun in. Then let it all hang out.
The aggressive side of TT. You didn't get a TTS to play nice. So play hard with a potent 265-horsepower 2.0 TFSI® engine, featuring a strong stance and dramatic curves
to showcase a performance profile that backs down to no one. Add a bold S model Audi Singleframe® grille with aluminum optic doubleblade crossbars, and a rapid-fire
Audi S tronic® dual-clutch transmission with launch control to define its muscularity. The exclamation point comes when you make the run from 0 to 60 mph in a blistering
4.9 seconds.1 Just to rub it in.
.08 – Sport Seats with Silk Nappa Leather Seating Surfaces
Luxurious and substantial, they feature contrasting stitching and prominent side bolsters.
.09 – 19" 5-segment-spoke Design Alloy Wheels
The high-performance design is complemented by summer performance tires2 that help deliver enhanced handling.
.10 – TTS Steering Wheel
Ergonomically designed with shift paddles for spirited driving, the TTS steering wheel features unique contrast stitching and emblems.
1 Always obey local speed and traffic laws. 2 See wheels page of this brochure for important safety information regarding summer performance tires.
Keep it together even when conditions fall apart.
Shaping power as it tames the conditions, legendary Audi quattro® all-wheel drive is more than a security blanket for your TT—it's a performance feature. Funneling power through
Audi quattro® helps provide solid traction, of course, but also crisper handling in nearly all kinds of driving conditions. Optimally balanced, Audi quattro® adapts as conditions
change, which means better cornering and surer grip, helping you concentrate more on the joy of driving your TT and less on what Mother Nature has up her sleeve.
Specially tuned for even more dynamic handling, Audi S magnetic ride offers a chassis lowered by 10 mm along with firmer spring rate. The added control comes from the direct and precise contact with the road and anti-roll bars for additional support. Both help reduce body roll during hard cornering and enhance overall performance, inviting you to drive your TTS the way it was meant to be driven. Activate Audi magnetic ride by engaging sport mode, and along with enhanced handling, you'll also get a more amplified exhaust note.
.11 – Center Differential
To help give you optimal traction in practically every situation, the center differential can distribute power to the front and rear wheels individually.
During normal driving conditions, it directs 85 percent of the torque to the front wheels, but in extreme circumstances, it can transfer up to 100
percent of the torque to one of the two axles.
.12 – Audi Magnetic Ride
Take control of the handling characteristics with a push of a button. The available magnetic struts are filled with a special fluid that can change its
viscosity instantly by introducing an electromagnetic charge, helping give you the right dampening forces for nearly every situation.
Perfect equilibrium from zero to forever.
Just as in nature, the balance of power in your TT is in constant flux. Good thing the engine and transmission find perfect harmony, adding
up to an altogether exhilarating experience. The perfectly tuned TFSI® engine helps provide a flawless yin to the advanced S tronic transmission's yang,
achieving a remarkable level of performance, almost indefinitely.
Audi S tronic transmission
The concept behind one of the world's most advanced transmissions is simple: provide near-constant power. This is accomplished by having two clutches, two input shafts and two independent gear clusters giving you confidence that you'll be in the gear you select the instant you select it. And that translates into big performance numbers.
2.0 TFSI engine – TT
Light, agile and powerful, the 2.0 TFSI engine puts out 211 hp and combines Audi valvelift system, variable valve timing, FSI® direct injection and turbocharging to prove performance doesn't have to lack efficiency.2
2.0 TFSI engine – TTS
No matter if you're passing on the highway or accelerating off the line, the 2.0 TFSI engine delivers an experience that's never less than engaged. Forged internal components are designed to support the 17.4 lbs of boost that the turbocharger provides. The result is a purposeful 265 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque that hardly misses a chance to make a powerful impression.
.13 – Dual Clutch Using two clutches that operate independently, gear shifts take place in a mere 0.2 seconds. One clutch controls the odd gears (first, third, fifth and reverse), while the other one controls the even gears (second, fourth and sixth). This helps one to always be ready to engage power and delivers seemingly lightning-quick gear changes.
.14 – Launch Control
Get off the line even quicker with the help of Audi launch control. Working in concert with the dual clutch S tronic®, it optimizes launch rev speed and
tire slippage, so you can expect faster off-the-line acceleration.1
.15 – Turbocharger
Using the energy from the spent exhaust to drive a compressor wheel, the turbocharger compresses the intake air and forces it into
the cylinder. The result. Increased power, torque and efficiency.2
1 Always obey local speed and traffic laws. 2 22 city/31 highway/26 combined mpg (2011 TT 2.0 TFSI with Audi S tronic dual-clutch transmission). EPA estimates.
Your mileage will vary. 3 TT Coupe: 0–60 mph in 5.3 seconds. TT Roadster: 0–60 mph in 5.6 seconds.
Caress the road. Then make it submit.
This is where you take it to another level. The unmistakable Audi look and fierce stance give the TT RS Coupe a powerful presence. Add to that a potent powerplant
and serious performance components, engineered with strength in mind. Then top it off with an interior worthy of such a vehicle. Now what do you have? A surefire
way to make every road seem as if it were made for you.
Designed with performance driving—and drivers—in mind, the interior of the TT RS blends function with form like no other. From the supportive sport seats with oversized bolsters to the track-inspired steering wheel to attractive metallic inlays, everything in here shouts extreme performance.
.16 – Dual-branch Exhaust System
By controlling the activation of flaps in the exhaust system, a striking engine sound is created.
.17 – Audi quattro®
This much power is useless, unless you can transfer it all to the road. That's where the legendary Audi quattro® all-wheel drive system comes into play.
Giving you solid traction on almost any road surface, Audi quattro® helps ensure that every time you push the accelerator, your command will be met with
an instant response.
Don't think stopwatch, think countdown.
Sure, there are numbers to time it. With 360 hp pumping through a 2.5 TFSI® five-cylinder and streamlined styling, the TT RS Coupe achieves 0–60 in 4.1
seconds.1 That's a blistering number, of course, but it's a bit of a narrow view of what this sports car delivers. In terms of pure engine output, it promises
to take no prisoners with a riveting exhaust note that plays when you hit the throttle. Its lightweight design enables more than straight line speed, and
some serious stopping power. And poised for acceleration, you might think its upper limit is the last few feet of the exosphere. But assuming you stay roadbound,
the only limits you might encounter are the ones mandated by law.
Brakes and suspension
With all this power, you need the ability to decelerate quickly and in control. With the TT RS, you can count on 14.6" oversized, ventilated front rotors to help give you incredible stopping power, while Audi S magnetic ride and sport suspension tuned specifically for the TT RS help give you confidence, even on the sharpest turns or during the fastest stops.
.18 – 6-speed Manual Transmission Staying true to its high-performance roots, the TT RS Coupe comes equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, specifically designed for quick gear shifts and a deeper connection to the road.
.19 – 2.5L Five-cylinder TFSI® Engine
It's not just the 360 hp and 343 lb-ft of torque the 2.5L TFSI® produces that make the TT RS engine a serious performer, it's how that kinetic potential is
delivered. With a lightweight ASF® aluminum space frame girding the vehicle, an ultraresponsive six-speed manual transmission and a design that helps reduce the
drag coefficient to a very low .32, the TT RS uses its direct-injected, turbocharged power plant with a lusty efficiency,2 moving weight faster than bulkier frames with
bigger engines. It is an agile, intelligent distribution of power that takes nothing away from the throttle–but only adds to its overall performance.
.20 – Aerodynamics
When you're moving this fast, proper aerodynamic features are absolutely necessary. A rear spoiler helps provide the necessary down-force needed
for optimal control.1
1 Always obey local speed and traffic laws. 2 See www.fueleconomy.gov for EPA estimates. Your mileage will vary.
Your world, right where it should be.
In today's world of constant connectivity, you expect to be able to maintain it anywhere. That's why we integrated the available highly advanced Audi Navigation
plus system.1 It not only helps find the best route to your destination, but also helps you skirt traffic and find a place to eat along the way. And
when you need to make a call, you can count on the available BLUETOOTH® mobile phone connectivity to make it happen with ease. Of course, you need
to be entertained along the way, so we've included SiriusXM Satellite Radio to get you from coast to coast without skipping a beat.
.21 – Audi Navigation Plus
The intuitive Audi Navigation plus is available to help ensure you'll be able to quickly input your next destination with
minimum distraction. And with the Audi real-time traffic feature, you can bet you'll get there without the gridlock.1
.22 – Bluetooth ®
Staying connected has never been more important. That's why your TT features available BLUETOOTH® mobile phone connectivity for simple, handsfree
functionality. With a simple push of a button on the steering wheel you can make and receive calls.
.23 – Satellite Radio
With more than 180 channels, you can drive from coast to coast and never run out of something to listen to. From music to news to talk radio,
it's a good bet that SiriusXM Satellite Radio has whatever you're in the mood for.
.24 – Audi Music Interface
Now you're in control. The available Audi music interface helps give you seamless iPod® integration. Your iPod® can be controlled through the audio
system and steering controls, and with two standard SD card slots for your MP3 music, your entertainment options just keep getting better.
.25 – BOSE® Sound System
Specifically tailored to suit the interior of your TT, the available premium BOSE® sound system helps deliver crisp and bold sound to
every seat, giving you an acoustic listening environment that rivals any live performance.

Unwavering protection. That's an understatement.
Your safety is not just another selling point for us. It's our highest priority. And to prove it, we went ahead and
included the most advanced safety features available, starting with the innovative ASF® aluminum space frame
that not only helps improve handling with its lightweight design but also helps provide incredible protection in
the event of a collision. Then there are our sophisticated driver control systems that help you avoid trouble before
it can start. And of course we provide a comprehensive airbag1 system to help protect you if the unthinkable
becomes inevitable. All this, so you can enjoy your TT in total confidence.
ASF aluminum space frame
Reduced weight and increased rigidity, that's exactly what the ASF aluminum space frame is all about. By using a combination of aluminum and high-strength steel, lightweight ASF technology helps deliver a significant drop in vehicle weight while still retaining body strength, thus adding up to all-around better performance.
By implementing a number of ingenious features, we have raised the bar on braking ability. The brake disc wiping system activates in wet conditions, gently pulsing the brakes to help dissipate water buildup, resulting in more effective braking when you need it most. We've also included the intelligent brake assist system, which is able to detect sudden hard braking and instantly applies full stopping power, helping to significantly reduce braking distance and increase peace of mind.
.26 – Crumple Zones Strategically placed in the front and rear, these crumple zones are designed to compress and deform during a collision and help absorb impact energy as it passes through the frame.
.27 – Six Standard Airbags
Helping protect you from almost all angles are six standard airbags, front-impact airbags for driver and passenger, driver
and front-passenger knee airbags, and seat-mounted, side-impact head and thorax airbags.
.28 – Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
Helping you stay on course in most conditions, Electronic Stability Control utilizes Anti-lock Brake System, the traction control of Anti-Slip
Regulation and electronic brake force distribution to help maintain control. When it detects a loss of traction, it automatically cuts the throttle
and applies braking force individually to each wheel, helping to steer your vehicle where you intended to go.
.29 – Roll Bars
Built into the TT and TTS Roadster are heavily reinforced roll bars, designed to help protect you and your passenger in the event of
a rollover. In addition to helping provide another level of safety, they also add to the overall visual muscle of the roadster.
This is a dramatization and does not depict what will happen in a collision. All bags will not inflate in real-world collisions, and, if multiple bags do deploy,
they will be in various stages of inflating/deflating and will never all be inflated at the same time. 1 Airbags are supplemental restraints only and will not
deploy under all crash circumstances. Always use safety belts and seat children only in the rear, using restraint systems appropriate for their size and age.
Imagine a cherry on top of your sundae. Sweet, right? Now imagine a cherry that helps protect your TT in the garage. Or carries your bikes for a serious weekend on the trails.
Or makes heads turn as you drive by. Audi Genuine Accessories are the little extras that make your Audi even sweeter. Designed by the same visionaries who designed your vehicle,
all accessories feature a tailored fit and the expert craftsmanship you'd expect from Audi. They are also backed by the 4-year/50,000-mile Audi New Vehicle Limited Warranty,
or the accessory's 12-month/12,000-mile limited warranty, whichever extends longer from the accessory purchase date.1
