You know what's ironic... One of my former customers was a hair dresser... And he did buy a TTS... Then an A7... Then an R8... But I DON'T CARE... He was one awesome hair dresser...
Jordan Smith Nov 26, 2012
I think he's just here to troll on purpose. Anyways, I think the TTRS is pretty cool, but the rest are a bit too girly for me.
Michael Davidson Nov 26, 2012
The R8 is a hairdressers car???
William Downs Nov 26, 2012
This kid again he shows his ignorance and lack of knowledge
Car Buzzer Nov 26, 2012
Hairdressers car, just like the r8
Bala Uncc Nov 26, 2012
Like it but its too cute and looks little bit like new beetle
Matt Piccolo Nov 25, 2012
Honestly, I've always though these were sweet little cars! I love to have one!
Drew Humphrey Nov 25, 2012
This car is like the Porsche Cayman: for people that can't afford an R8. Like Jeremy Clarkson said. I'd stick with an Audi S4 before I would stick with an Audi TT.

I agree with Adam, the newer ones dont look at all like chick cars
Adam Beiersdorfer Nov 25, 2012
The newer TT's in person really don't look quite so chick like... They really have improved it tons...
Braxton Omgbased Booker Nov 25, 2012
I can honestly say it doesn't look like a chick car to me any more, but then again thats coming from a guy who likes miatas lol
Tyler Tarbox Nov 25, 2012
Yeah I agree. It's hard to turn a chick car in to something cool and mean looking though
Nick Benz Nov 25, 2012
This just meeds some more curves. Its too cute. It has a lot of potential though
Description: The lightweight TT is tipped to get a similar treatment to the Porsche 911 GT3, trimming excess fat, fitting a roll cage and possible tightening up the suspension to near track levels of firmness. Con...

I understand the reason for the FWD bais, but they could shift some weight around and adjust the anti-roll bars to allow the front to bite in harder. I'm also sure further adjustments could be made to the haldex control logic to keep more power rearward under load.
Adam Beiersdorfer Nov 26, 2012
That means they need to change the transversal engine to a longitudinal one... And that will take a major redesign... But I agree it would make it better
Dave Larby Nov 25, 2012
Plus shifting some weight rearward and changing out the anti roll bars to give it more front end grip.
Dave Larby Nov 25, 2012
They should concentrate on trying to give it a more RWD Bias... To cut it's tendency to under steer.
Michael Riley Nov 25, 2012
ermahgerd the TT RS is my favorite and it will only get better from here on out :D
Jacob Hassing Nov 25, 2012
Adam's right. C&D tested the TT RS with the dual-clutch at 3.6s 0-60 in their comparo of that vs. the BMW 1-series M-thing and the Infiniti IPL G37
Jörgen Nilsson Nov 25, 2012
Well, since 3,6-3,7 to 100 km/h normally takes a lot more hp to do (even if the 4WD helps) I remain skeptical to your stats.
Adam Beiersdorfer Nov 25, 2012
Take a look at all the forums and even places like Motortrend... S8 hitting 60 more than a full second than Audi claims...
Adam Beiersdorfer Nov 25, 2012
Yea... And according to Audi it takes an S6 mid 4's to hit 60... Yet it has been determined to hit in 3.7 secs... If you know anything about Audi... The always list higher numbers on the S models and RS models... But don't take my word for it
Jörgen Nilsson Nov 25, 2012
And yes, I noticed that Adam was talking about 0-60 mph, not 0-62. But who thinks the last 2 mph takes half a second?
Jörgen Nilsson Nov 25, 2012
Now, who do we believe, Audi or Adam?
Jörgen Nilsson Nov 25, 2012
Audi themselves ( states the ttrs 0-100 km/ as 4,6 s. The ttrs plus (some hp more, S-tronic gearbox) as 4,1 seconds to 100 km/h.
Adam Beiersdorfer Nov 25, 2012
Audi TTR-S in auto will hit 60 in 3.6 seconds vs the manuals 4.2 seconds... That's just as fast as a V10 R8 to 60 mph... Now that I've stated the facts as a former Audi Employee... Please tell me how Im wrong...
Adam Beiersdorfer Nov 25, 2012
Feel free to actually fact check me... It's not like I haven't called anyone else out of Audi facts...
Owen Tiernan Nov 25, 2012
@Adam... Yeah, I'm pretty sure it doesn't do that. Nice try.
Adam Beiersdorfer Nov 25, 2012
In Europe with the auto it hits 60 in the mid 3's... Hard to knock an auto when it can pull over half a second to 60 over the manual...
Tyler Tarbox Nov 25, 2012
May not be a looker, but can't argue with 4.1 seconds

A8 was the first all aluminum sedan. Honda/Acura NSX was the first production aluminum car, 1990.
Ceyda Deniz Gurler Nov 26, 2012
And this lights could be white
Coleman DuCharme Nov 25, 2012
*Functional hood vents
Thibault Leroy Nov 25, 2012
@Nick agreed
Nick Schnee Nov 25, 2012
Some hood vents would be cool...
Logan Delony Nov 25, 2012
Needs a meaner front fascia
Adam Beiersdorfer Nov 25, 2012
That wouldn't be a bad hood to have on the road going model...
Coleman DuCharme Nov 25, 2012
Good god what a monster of performance.
