This is the Audi TT Roadster, a new convertible addition to the latest TT model line, due to be shown at next month's Paris motor show.
Set to go on sale from mid-November, with first deliveries beginning next spring, the Roadster is likely to command a premium of around £2,200 over its fixed-roof sibling, which starts from £29,770.
Aside from the addition of a fully automatic, electrically folding fabric roof, specifications for the Roadster mirror those of the Coupe TT, with Sport and S line trim levels available.
Standard features on Sport models include a 12.3-inch TFT screen in place of traditional dials – which can also optionally display the sat nav – adaptive dampers and 18-inch alloys. S line models are further equipped with larger wheels, full LED headlamps and stiffer sports suspension with a 10mm lowered ride height.
The engine line-up is also carried over and includes a 181bhp 2.0-litre turbodiesel, and a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol unit available with 227bhp or 306bhp in the fiery TTS model (pictured above).
All are mated to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic available as an option. Also optional on petrol models is Audi's quattro four-wheel-drive system, though opt for the TTS (for now the range-topping model) and it's fitted as standard.
After launch, the TT range will grow to include further models, including a performance range-topper in the form of the TTRS - likely to be fitted with a turbocharged five-cylinder petrol engine. There are also rumours of further models, including a TT SUV – hinted by the Audi Allroad Shooting Brake concept early this year – but this has yet to be confirmed.
