Production of the third generation Audi TT and TTS coupes has started at Audi Hungaria Motor, the subsidiary of the German automaker that also assembles the A3 Sedan, which is proving so popular in America right now.

The smallest and lightest car so far built on the MQB modular platform, the TT is already available for order with prices in Germany starting at €35,000. UK dealers have also received demonstration models a few days ago and pricing information is pending. Three different versions are available at the moment, a 2-liter diesel with 184 PS, a 2-liter base petrol with 230 PS and available with quattro all-wheel drive or a 310 PS flagship TTS model.

Over half a million units of the previous two TT generations have been built and sold. The German company belies the technology and performance on offer could make the Mk3 an even more successful car.

“The new generation of the Audi TT is the third model that Audi is completely producing in the new car plant at our site in Hungary,” stated Gerd Walker, Automobile Production Director at Audi Hungaria. “The successful model integration on the new production line is an important activity for the GyQr production site: This means that the plant is now operating at full capacity.”

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.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
