New Audi TT & TTS Coupe Photos Show Vegas Yellow and Tango Red Colors

In 1995, Audi first presented the TT to the world as a concept car. Almost two decades later, the company is about to silence its critics, as there were a few, with an all-new model that impresses through design, performance and economy numbers. Production has just begun in Hungary and with that, the German company is able for the first time to give us a much better look at the configuration possibilities with actual press cars, not digitally created images.

Fresh press photos show both the regular TT and the performance TTS model in the best light possible. The sexy new colors for the two cars are called Tango Red, Scuba Blue, Ibis White and Vegas Yellow. You can check them out and Audi's wide selection of wheel and interior options in the photo gallery below.

Our favorite is the TTS Coupe in Vegas Yellow, a bright color that's combined with LED headlights and black accents for an excellent visual impact. Frustratingly, we still don't actually know what the TTS costs, but we can tell you it's the fastest car ever built on the MQB platform. With 310 PS pulling at all four corners, this 2+2 is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds on its way to an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

Even the regular TT models look quite good in these photos. But it's worth noting that the optional S line body kit has been fitted to all of them. Two engines are available here, a 2.0 TDI rated at 184 PS and the 2.0 TFSI from the Golf GTI, producing 230 PS.

This all-new TT is built on the same MQB platform as the new A3, the VW Golf and SEAT Leon Cupra. But it's lighter than all of them, thanks to extensive use of aluminum and compact proportions. Audi has sold over half a million units of its smallest sportcar until now. The first TT was assembled in 1998, its replacement arriving in 2006. We firmly believe that at least one more engine and a convertible version of the Mk3 two-door will be available within a year.
