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.
