Audi TT launched on the Chinese car market
Published on July 1, 2015 by W.E. Ning
The new Audi TT and Audi TT Roadster have been launched on the Chinese car market. Price starts at 542.800 yuan and ends at 617.800 yuan ($87.525 – 99.618). The TT is available with only one engine; the ‘EA888’ 2.0 TFSI with 230hp and 370nm, mated to a six-speed DCT, sending power to the front wheels or to all wheels.
The model name is ’45 TFSI’. Audi is using a completely different naming-system in China than in the rest of the world. The Audi TT will compete with other popular sporty cars such as the BMW Z4 and the Mercedes-Benz SLK, and to a lesser extend the Nissan 370Z.
The outgoing TT was massively hip in country, as proven by our Famous China Audi TT Collection™: Pink, Hello Kitty, shiny dark blue, shiny blue, matte blue TTS, orange license, Pink, license (7TT70), Pink, girls & Lambo-doors, pink-orange, gray-blue, red R8, big wing, kiddie ride, gold, children, orange, with tree, pink, and purple.
As usual in China the launch came with a massive ceremony with many speeches, light shows, and other entertainment. We leave you with this fine photo for a proper impression of the festivities. Now, what is on that paper she got in her little hands..?
