When Audi launched the first TT generation in 1998, it soon became clear that this coupe — which was quickly followed by an equally attractive roadster — was, quite simply, a design icon.
No fewer than 275,000 vehicles were to be built, a figure that no one had expected.
It was no surprise that everyone at Audi took particular pains as far the second generation was concerned — after all, it's not easy to reinterpret an icon.
This book describes the long journey undertaken by the designers and engineers before the new model boasted the form and technology that made it worthy of the TT name.
The result affords not only an enthralling reinterpretation of the classic design, but also outstanding performance — as demonstrated by the many positive tests and road reports in trade journals.
Those captivated by the TT will value this book about its development.
