Our R18 with ultra record is a masterpiece. It consists of some-more than 4 thousand particular parts.

Our engineers have redesigned scarcely all of them. With a illusory result: adult to thirty percent reduce fuel consumption. Our name for this potency is Audi ultra.

Our success in motorsport is eventually to a advantage of a customers. Because we put a modernized technologies from motorsport into array production. This send has a clever bequest during Audi:

Just consider of a Audi quattro, a Audi e-tron or of march of a TFSI technology.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Some report it as a “small R8*”, others as “stylish” or a “right one for circuitous roads”.

Those are some of a press comments on a new Audi TT*.

After a coupé, a new Audi TT Roadster is a subsequent prominence in a TT family. It promises a glorious and romantic pushing experience. The manly roadster with a low frontend and streamlined figure has a intensity to turn another pattern icon. Its modernized technical facilities include, in serve to a practical cockpit, a pattern LED headlights and a whole operation of motorist assistance systems. And a TTS chronicle with a 310 horsepower is even some-more absolute than a predecessor.

Audi as a association is creation swell only as boldly as this car: Demand for a reward models is rising in all regions of a world. With some-more than 160,000 units, we have only achieved a best Sep of all time. We have increasing a aim for full-year 2014 to 1.7 million deliveries.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we all feel a certain enterprise for illusory experiences. 150 years ago, Jules Verne asked himself for a novel he was essay what Paris competence demeanour like in a twentieth century. It’s amazing: He likely a executive supply of energy, a Internet and even a vehicle – powered by gas, by a way, like a Audi g-tron models today.

Anyone who wants to change a universe needs this idealist power. That’s what drives us and that’s what we during Audi call “Vorsprung durch Technik”. In a word: What drives us on … is a future. In this spirit, we are now giving we an sense of how we competence serve rise a successful TT family.

Thank you.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am gay to mount here on theatre together with Marc Lichte. we see Marc as an superb immature engineer with huge potential, and we am intensely gratified that he is now with us on house of AUDI AG.

He has a dedicated concentration on a core values of a brand: Sportiness, dynamism, tension and liberality in perfection. And, along with his team, he puts them into a new, groundbreaking design.

Marc Lichte will make certain that any Audi is observable and unique, from a outside, from a inside, and during a initial glance. we consider we will be looking brazen to that as well. Your calm will be rewarded.

I am gay to benefaction we a Audi TT Sportback concept. Isn’t that a good car?

In a video, we have only seen what it stands for: Innovation that is tangible. Performance that is practicable in bland situations and modernized record in any detail, magnificently gentle and discerning to operate. That relates to any Audi, either it’s a judgment vehicle or a array model.

The Audi TT Sportback judgment is a compress high-performance sports vehicle with quattro permanent all-wheel drive. We have total a TT genes with a magnificence of a five-door coupés: a Audi A5 Sportback* and a Audi A7 Sportback*.

Let’s have a demeanour during a light technology: This uncover vehicle is another good explanation of how heading Audi is in this area: The high lamp spotlight is combined by laser. In any headlight, a procedure of 4 absolute diodes creates a cone of light that shines for several hundred meters ahead. The laser light supplements a LED high lamp during speeds above 60 kilometers per hour: a good advantage in terms of prominence and safety.

Let’s have a demeanour during a performance: The Audi TT Sportback judgment is driven by a 2-liter TFSI engine with proceed fuel injection and 400 horsepower, and with an suitable sporty handling. It accelerates from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 3.9 seconds.

In 2014, we showed a extended accumulation of judgment studies formed on a Audi TT pattern idiom: in Jan in Detroit a Audi allroad sharpened stop concept, in Mar in Geneva a Audi TT quattro competition concept, in Apr in Beijing a Audi TT offroad judgment and now in Paris: a Audi TT Sportback concept.

This is a proceed to sound out a marketplace opportunities of these vehicle concepts.

The feedback of a open has been positive. We have not nonetheless announced that judgment will go into array production. But we will find out some-more about that soon.

Thank you.
