Audi Prices TTS Coupe From $45,500; Roadster From $47,500


The Audi TTS, which was revealed at last January's North American International Auto Show in Detroit, is just about ready to be sold in the States, and official pricing has been announced. The TTS Coupe will start at $45,500, with the TTS Roadster priced from $47,500. This pricing reflects a $10,300 premium over the base TT models.
Under the hood, the TTS is powered by Audi's revised 2.0 TFSI engine, cranking out 265 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The Coupe will go from zero to 60 miles an hour in just 4.9 seconds, while the Roadster adds two tenths of a second to that time. Fuel economy should still be relatively good for cars in this segment, with both models yielding 21 city and 29 highway miles per gallon. Power is routed through the S-tronic dual-clutch system capable of 0.2-second shift times and Quattro all-wheel drive is standard. Top speed in both cars is electronically limited to 155 miles per hour.
Audi is also working on an even more powerful TT-RS, though there's still no official word if that car will be coming to America.
