Is there even 1 time posted here that was acheived with a stardard 6speed manual gearbox?

If there actually is (I doubt) perhaps weights for both the 6MT / DSG can be listed in the sake of accuracy. But as it currently stands it doesn't make since to list the weight for a car (6MT) that didn't achieve the times listed.

Oh did you guys read the new BMW 1M vs. Audi TT RS vs Infiniti G37 Ipl compero from Road & Track?

The Audi is damn quick with that DSG and AWD but I like the 1M BMW would be my choice if I had to pick.

But anyways it was a pretty neat read. If I recall they weighed the cars and the Audi TT RS weighs something like 3350 pounds maybe a bit more or less which isn't too bad. I believe it weighs a little more than the BMW but still not to bad.

You could probably type in key words in goggle / yahoo and look at it yourselves.

Hold on a second I'm confussed...

The times posted here a for an Audi TT S coupe with DSG correct? I mean I seriously doubt the car could run the times posted with a traditional manual when you factor in the power to weight ratio (not that impressive).

So I guess the point is that seeing that the times where achieved with a Audi TT Coupe w/ DSG why is the weight of a manual version posted?

I did check Audi myself as I was courious seeing all the back and forth and they do list the car weighing 3241 pounds. Seeing this is the Car uses for the posted times wouldn't it make since to post the correct weight for the right car (Audi TT S Coupe w/DSG gearbox)?

As far as Motortend , Car & Driver and so on, well they're not always correct unless the weigh theirselves. They sometimes confuse different models (ex: List weight for the regular Audi TT for the TT S and so on.

Anyhow I do find it hard to believe that even the 6 speed manual version weighs 3069 pounds seeing the DSG version weighs 3241 according to Audi. Perhaps they're referring to it's "dry weight" in which case that wouldn't even be right but curb weight is used for all the other cars I've seen listed here. Should apply the same formula for all cars so that there isn't a bias toward any particular brand.

But yeah I would say the currect weight for this car is 3241 pounds seeing the DSG version is the one that acheived the quick times posted here.

@Nin

TheFrank not only realize that Audi is not a US company he even does not realize that only a single laptime of the TT-S here at fastestlaps is from the USA... so 17 of the 18 laptimes are NOT driven with a US spec TT-S Coupe

The TT-RS isn´t on sale in the USA so far so there is no US curb weight claim avaible...

@TheFrank
I still wait for your explaining how MT and C&D can test US spec TT-S quattro Stronic (with AWD AND DSG!!!!) with 3110lbs and 3150lbs if accroding to your cristal ball of truth the curb weight is 3241lbs?

There is no MANUAL version Audi TT-S with AWD.

vs.

the TT-S is avaible with 6speed manual

You guys are in different countries. What is (or isn't) offered in the US is different than what is availible in Germany.

For example, TT-RS doesn't have DSG option in the US but does elsewhere. On this site, the best 0-whatever times (with DSG) are listed even though US buyers won't be able to match those times.

If the best weight is listed (even though US cars weigh more), it's fine if it is correct, IMO

What is availible, options, etc. will change the weight so the weight isn't just 1 number.

if tested cars are heavyer they are mostly loaded with options... all weights are for standart cars without weight adding options!

@The Frank

weight is manufactor claim END OF DISCUSSION!!!!!!!

Audi is a German brand so the only reference that count is their main homepage... there they clearly claim 1470kg is including 75kg driver! Without driver but fuel and liquids the car weights 1395kg!

C&D 3264lbs curb weight is for the DUAL CLUTCH TRANSMISSION version!
The tested car was fitted with the optional $5000 Prestige pack... options always ADD weight..
You should read tests and look not only at numbers

In the compare to the 135i the TT-S was clearly lighter even with options, there the 135i including option toped 3500lbs... why no blabla at the 135i page which is listed with 3260lbs here?

As I said before, the FWD 2.0t Audi TT weighs closer to 3069lbs NOT the AWD TT-S coupe which is closer 3300lbs.

So the weight should be fixed along with the bogus power to weight ratio and 1/8 mile est, etc.


User avatar

TheFrank  7y ago

@ Groeg

Those you got from MT and C&D are for the FWD 2.0T lol!!!

If you look you'll see the weight for the AWD version at 3300lbs!!! lol

Seriously, the car weighs A LOT more than 3069lbs. It's roughly 3300lbs but most accounts.

@ Georg

Un-true cliams? I'm not the one saying the Audi TT-S coupe weighs just 3069lbs!!!

I meant closer to 3300lbs But regardless that's A LOT more than 3069lbs!

Oh here's another:

3264lbs

Audi TT-S weight INCLUDING 75kg driver 1470kg... without 1395kg
1395kg = 3075lbs
the different between 3069 and 3075lbs is the change between modelyears..

Audi USA is to stupid to add the numbers correctly..they took the German weight including driver and claim it as curb weight!

Motortrend
curb weight 3110lbs

car and driver

TheFrank  7y ago

The curb weight for the Audi TT-S coupe ISN'T just 3069lbs.

The true curb weight for the Audi TT-S is closer to 3400lbs or 1470kg. Ref: Car and Driver. Road & Track, Edmunds, Motor Trend, Audi USA, etc.)

The weight currently listed for this car is roughly 300lbs lighter than actual.

So obviously the power to weight ratio is NOT correct and the car isn't near as quick as its 0-X times might have you think.

For example, yes it'll match a 135i from a standing start to 1/4mile but from a roll-on (real world) it gets’ smoked due to inferior power to weight and AWD vs. RWD/ FWD drive train loss.

The car is a wee bit over estimated on this site. But then again that apparently can be said about any > Audi

listed here.

the Reader Motorsport tuned TT-S did run the northloop in mind blowing 7:49min...
changes ... wheel, tires(same size as stock), fully adjustable coiloverkit, larger front brakes, ECU remap to 315hp, Recaro seats..

f900x600-F4F4F2-C-9653d46e-162612.jpg

that turns a 8:29min northloop car into a 7:49min northloop car if you know how to setup the suspension correctly!
At the Hockenheim shorttrack the TT-S reached a 1:12.0min... with 315hp...

@ Apathy

According to at least 1 source, there WILL be a TT-RS in the USA.

http://blog.caranddriver.com/more-details-on-u-s-spec-2012-audi-tt-rs-360-hp-maybe-priced-around-60k/

It may be better than the current TT-RS (updated to more hp)

Finally, a TT with some balls to match its handling. If only they sold the TT-RS in the US.:(

@user 101

there is a mistake on the US audi side...

the 1470kg is the EG-Richtlinie 92/21/EWG weight ... thats curbe weight +75kg driver/luggage...
the US curbe weight is car with fuel without driver/luggage...
1470kg minus 75 = 1395kg

http://www.audi.de/de/brand/de/neuwagen/tt/tts_coupe/informieren/technische_daten_und.html

Leergewicht *1470 kg * Fahrzeugleergewicht mit Fahrer 68kg, Gepäck 7kg und Kraftstoffbehälter zu 90% gefüllt, ermittelt nach der EG-Richtlinie 92/21/EWG in der gegenwärtig geltenden Fassung.

all is correct

I think there\'s a FWD version with a 6 speed manual that may weigh less but this is the AWD version and comes only with auto-man gearbox.

This Audi TT-S weighs a lot more than 3069LBS.. It\'s closer to 3400lbs last time I checked. It may be pretty quick up to 1/4 mile due to AWD and gearing but many other cars with less impressive bragging rights numbers (0-60 ; 1/4mile) will blow its doors off in a test of real world / at speed acceleration where power to weight ratio plays a bigger role. I hate how Audi’s are so damn front heavy.

It\'s definately not under 20 sec to 200. It has the same motor as the Scirocco are, which does 200 in exactly 20 sec. but weights less than the TT-S. Despite the fact, that all wheel drive eats a lot of power after the start.
