THE first TT Roadster was a car that in design terms lost nothing in the translation from coupe to convertible, and the new roadster also upholds the simple, fluid style of its coupe sibling. Even though soft-tops are often all about style, this one is an accomplished performer too, with a balanced, lightweight body powered by an energetic four-cylinder engine or smooth V6. Audi has maintained open-top tradition with its fabric roof, claiming a folding steel roof was too heavy and cumbersome. For the first time in the Roadster, there’s also a V6 quattro variant. Despite only being available as an automatic, for a premium open-top car, the TT Roadster not only looks good – but performs and handles well too.
