Audi TT facelift hits Nurburgring for some track time

Audi TT facelift hits Nurburgring for some track time

Audi has been preparing a mid-life update for the TT coupe and the roadster for quite some time now. The sports car has been spotted on many occasions undergoing cold weather testing. Now, our spy sleuths have caught the refreshed TT at the Nurburgring where it can put down some track timebut found the condition to be wet and pouring.

As we have established from the previous appearances, the new and updated Audi TT will only have some minor cosmetic updates to the fascia and rear bumpers. We can see a prominent design update for the tail lights in the new pictures. There is a new sharper lighting signature in the headlights whereas the bumper seems to get redesigned air vents. The rear bumper is completely cladded but the diffuser is the same as the one seen on the current TT Coupe S Competition Line. 

The characteristic grille, however, appears to be meshed on the test mule compared to the horizontal slat ones on the current car. The TT received its last major update in 2014, and the new-gen TT is still a few years away. So this subtle update will keep the two-door sports car fresh for the next couple of years. If Audi plans to keep this update on the sports car for another two years we expect to see some more updates on the headlight and taillight design as well.

Powertrains will remain unchanged as the update is not skin deep. However, there are rumours that there will be a slight bump in power figures to keep things interesting. The 2.0-litre turbo-petrol produces 220bhp in the base TT while the S variant pumps out 292bhp. The range-topping RS’ 2.5-litre unit breathes out 400bhp of power in the current configuration. There is no word on any update to the driveline at the moment. Audi hasn’t revealed any details about the increase in power either.

Expect the new TT to be revealed later this year at any major auto expo as a 2019 year model. Sales will commence early next year
