On the 13th of last September, OnCarX’s team hit the sky to Marbella, Spain to participate in a special launch event of the 2015 Audi TTS.
One thing we got out of the experience is that the TTS is just t-t-terrific!
Over the course of 2 days, we had the opportunity to test drive the TTS around town as well as on the Ascari Race Resort track. It was one heck of a drive!
Sorry y’all couldn’t be there, but we made it up for you … Check out the video for a nice overview of the trip.

Marbella launch highlights the compact sports car’s cutting-edge technology
The new Audi TTS is a compact sports car that fascinates with its emotional design and cutting-edge technology which draws from the first version that rolled out of the production plant in 1998.
Measuring 4.18 metres long with a wheelbase of 2.51 metres, the idea behind the body of the TTS, as well as the TT, marks a new transformation of the Audi Space Frame (ASF) based on the modular diagonal model.
The new TT and TTS sports cars run on a TFSI engine which has at least three variants that produce energy in the range of 184 hp and 310 hp yet use significantly less fuel.
The TTS, seen to be among top cars for sale in the region, also has a sound actuator that works with the optional Audi drive select system for that deep grunting and powerful sound as it sprints from full stop to 100kph in just 4.6 seconds on a Quattro all-wheel drive.
The TTS has an electrohydraulic, multi-plate clutch that brings forceful power to the front wheels during normal driving, but can as well divert it to the rear instantaneously.
The Audi TT and TTS showcase a MacPherson front suspension (MacPherson strut) and a four-link rear suspension; both systems feature Audi magnetic ride suspension.
Inside the TT and TTS is an expression of the sporty character of the new models and its driver-centric features, which makes them even more attractive to aficionados looking to buy sports cars for sale.
Another sensation is the digital instrument cluster with highly detailed, multifaceted graphics at the virtual cockpit which replaced the analog instruments and MMI, and allows the person behind the wheel to switch the 12.3-inch digital monitor between two modes.
The TT and TTS have been around for the past 15 years with these latest models being the third generation of the coupé.
