Let's start with what hasn't changed. As promised, Audi dropped a 310 PS turbo engine under the bonnet. It is a very impressive 2-liter mill that delivers its maximum output at 5,800rpm and also produces 380 Nm of torque.

With the optional S tronic auto gearbox, the TTS Coupe sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and stops when only when asked to by its electronic governor at 250 km/h. The standard model comes with a manual and requires 4.9 seconds to reach the benchmark speed.

Today, we also leaned that it is very efficient as well, as the S tronic model promises city fuel consumption of 8.3 liters per 100 kilometers. That's largely due to the way in which this twin-clutch gearbox works and to the lightness of the package: just 1,460 kilograms.

TTS Coupe prices revealed

As standard, the all-new TTS starts at €49,100 including taxes with a manual or €51,250 with the S tronic six-speed twin-clutch. There's no other way to put this: it's very expensive. A base Porsche Cayman costs almost the same at €51,350, while the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG costs €49,980.

There are also a few reasons to consider buying the Audi TTS over the more powerful A45. For starters, performance is about the same and four-ring options cost a little less. For example, the awesome Vegas Yellow color is just €340, while red leather seats cost €685.

Making a case against the mighty Cayman is an altogether more difficult thing. If you can't be convinced that a RWD Porsche can be beaten by an AWD Audi, at least know that the TTS is available with all-LED Matrix headlights.
