Audi TT & VW Concept 1
In the latest AutoWeek there's a shot of Audi's new concept car at the
Frankfurt auto show the TT. Looks very similar to the VW Concept 1
with a chopped roofline, same wheels and general body shape. AutoWeek
voted it the Best Concept. Copy reads as follows:
"In metallic silver, Audi's neat little TT (for technology and
tradition) is redolent of the prewar Auto-Union racers, yet looks
thoroughly modern. The TT uses underpinnings of the new Audi A3,
which debuts next summer. The TT coupe sits on a shorter wheelbase
and uses the Quattro four-wheel-drive system. Power comes from the
A4's 150-hp, 1.8-liter 20-valve turbo. A roadster version, the TR, is
scheduled to debut next month in Tokyo."
Can't wait to see that roadster!
Also, check out AutoWeek on the web: www.autoweek.com Looks like
they've got some good ideas, could develop into a very nice site.
They changed the layout of the magazine a little too, not sure if I
like any better or worse yet. Now I'm done editorializing.
