No going back to Bauhaus
Peter Murphy and Walter Gropius stroll into Geneva’;s Palexpo, search at the new Audi TT and proclaim, “This ain’;t a return to Bauhaus, in truth, it appears like it may possibly just be hefty refresh. Dag.” Plainly, that is a fictional situation. Gropius is as dead as Bela Lugosi and Murphy suggests that there will not be any additional Bauhaus reunions. Also, the next TT is constructed on Volkswagen Group’;s new MQB architecture, which means that it is without a doubt a wholly new beast.
Judging from what we have noticed from the over press picture, which hit the web earlier today, the up coming TT largely carries on the silhouette of its instant predecessor. We pulled up some crude detail out of the shadows (mind the artifacts! they’;re sharp!). The real noise is obviously in the more-trapezoidal nose, previewed by the sketch launched a shade more than a week in the past.
Audi’;s also launched a even more sketch — a more comprehensive rendering than the one proven earlier in the month — that illustrates all 3 generations of TT front-end therapies. The Allroad Shooting Brake notion at the Detroit car present was broadly believed to presage the nose treatment method of the sporting coupe’;s following generation. Judging by the illustration, said speculation was extremely much proper-on.
We’;ll have further ideas on the new auto upon its debut at the Geneva motor display in just a few days’; time.
