Event Coverage: TT Cars & Coffee

[gallery link="file" columns="1" size="full" ids="97696"] By: Louli Kourkounakis, photos by George Achorn Last year, Audi of America hosted a TT Cars & Coffee at its headquarters in Herndon, Virginia. The event was a celebration of the 25 years of TT and a sendoff for the final year of the model. While the weather was a bit to be desired, the turnout was not.

Audi TT: Elements of a Name

[gallery link="file" columns="1" size="full" ids="97505"] by: Steve Johnson In a story written by Nelson Ireson for Automobile Magazine covering the Mark III TT models being driven on the Isle of Man TT’s mountain course, he said the linkage between the car and race goes back to 1938 when the TT Lightweight class was won by former mechanic and backup rider, Ewald Kluge, on a new DKW 250 ULd. We beg to differ. The actual linkage is much more complex and more akin to the building blo...

Find of the Day: Suzuka Grey Audi exclusive TT RS

[gallery link="file" columns="1" size="full" ids="96763"] If you haven’t seen Suzuka Grey Metallic in person, you really need to.

It was also a popular factory offering during the TT RS Mk2 era, so when we spotted a Mk3 TT RS in the same color in inventory over at Audi Wilsonville, we were admittedly curious...

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="90580"] photos: Nick Mercadante I don't think I've ever hidden my love for the 2nd generation TT especially the RS version.
