AUDI TT ROADSTER
Going topless in South Africa is a practice that occurs every day, from Clifton Beach in Cape Town, to Umhlanga Rocks in KZN and nearly everywhere in between is a common practice. A perfect climate for a perfect car.
The Audi TT 2.0 fits that bill – Audi’s smallest topless ride- Audi’s instant classic.
The Audi TT is the roll bar-equipped, topless two-seat roadster and if you prefer the hardtop fastback you can accommodate an additional 2 passengers – but very uncomfortably.
Built on the Audi A4 platform making good use every possible engine/drivetrain combination in the line-up, which would include the legendary quattro all-wheel-drive system.
BMW’s Z4 (once called Z3), Mercedes-Benz’s SLK and Porsche’s Boxster have rivalled this iconic roadster.
