New Audi TT to launch in 2005, Audi A6 coupe due in 2006

Ingolstadt. Audi is busy developing the successors to the successful TT-series.

The TT coupe -- front- and rear-end design of which will resemble that of the Nuvolari concept car -- will be introduced at the Geneva auto show in spring 2005. It will be available in the showrooms from the summer.

A year later the roadster version will be launched -- again with a classic soft top.

Both TT models will for the first time have aluminum bodies. Production will be moved from Gyor, Hungary to Neckarsulm, Germany. This move is supposed to secure the jobs that will become available once the production of the A2 supermini finishes.

The planning for a large Audi coupe is also taking shape: the 2 + 2 based on the platform of the A6 successor will have a steel body. The car will be presented at the IAA Frankfurt auto show in 2005 and will be available from the beginning of 2006.
