Self Study Program 630 – Audi TT (Type FV)
VAG SSP 630. In future, new models will no longer be identified in self study programmes by their launch year, but will be differentiated by their type designation. The new TT has been assigned to the “FV” model family.
The TT was a revolutionary car design when it was first unveiled in 1995. Its strictly geometrical, formally coherent design language made it an icon with huge charisma. For the third TT generation, the Audi designers have returned to many of these ideas and placed them in a new context that is as dynamic as it is diverse. The central motif was the circle – embodied in the curves of the roof line, and the front and the rear overhangs with their resolutely horizontal lines. From the side, many details of the new Audi TT are reminiscent of the first-generation classic in many respects. Together with the door, the fluid contour of the sill – the dynamic line – creates a striking refracting edge. The rear edges of the door are gently rounded. The broad wheel arches form geometric bodies. The front wheel arch breaches the line of the hood, which continues over the door as a tornado line and runs almost horizontally through to the tail as a strong body shoulder, culminating elegantly at the tail lights.
The door handles feature a sturdy bow-shaped design, while the side mirrors sit atop the body shoulder – their slender bases are designed for enhanced aerodynamic and aeroacoustic performance.
In a design reminiscent of the first-generation TT, the flat glass housing also gives the impression of being a separate entity, and the slight kink in the rear side window accentuates the powerful C-posts. The circular fuel flap on the right side panel opens with a gentle tap. What is new is that there is no fuel tank cap beneath the flap. The filler nozzle slots straight into the tank filler, just like in a racing car.
The tail of the new Audi TT is compact and powerful, the interplay of light and shade serving to enhance the impression of fluidity. Here too, three horizontal lines underline the impression of the new TT’s sporty width.
The third generation of the compact sports car again commands attention with its emotional design and dynamic attributes. Standout features of the new coupe are its innovative driveline technology as well as its new operating and display concept.
New type designation
Due to the fact that there are so many model families, the letters after the number are running out. Audi has therefore adopted a new type nomenclature. After the models of the new A3 generation had been given the type designation 8V, the Audi TT was assigned a new designation denoting its model family and has since received the type designations “8J” and “8N”.
