Audi TT Coupe 3.2 quattro: Cementing cult-car status

Audi TT Coupe 3.2 quattro
According to this review the Audi TT Coupe 3.2 quattro is cementing the cult-car status of the Audi TT. So right.

I tested a 2008 3.2 quattro MT6 (manual transmission V-6), and this car left a lasting impression due to its combination of performance and nimble handling.

The look

The first generation TT was an image-buster, a car ahead of its time. It looked like a futuristic concept car that someone took for a joyride. The design adhered to pure geometric lines, and the TT paved the road for all future Audis that followed.

This time around, the TT is 5.4-inches longer and 3.1-inches wider than its predecessor, but only 0.2 inches higher. I like the big, single-frame grille, present on all Audis, that serves as the TT’s shield as it charges forth down the road.

A great optional feature on the test car was Audi’s high-tech damping system, Audi magnetic ride. The shock absorber pistons on the TT do not contain conventional oil, but instead use a magneto-rheological fluid in which microscopically small magnetic particles are enclosed. When a voltage is applied

to them, they alter the damping characteristics within milliseconds. I could choose from “standard” and “sport” setting with flick of a switch.
