Sun on your face, but no folding hard top

No, it won't have a folding metal roof like practically all other modern drop-tops. But the new-generation Audi TT Roadster will have extra soundproofing in its cloth hood. And it will get a fully automatic `hands-free'operation which takes just 12 seconds to do the business and stows away more efficiently than before.

Torsional rigidity (always a problem with roofless cars) is also claimed to be improved by 100 percent. Audi's Space Frame construction (58 percent aluminum, 42 percent steel) keeps it comparatively light (2849 pounds for the 200-bhp,turbocharged 2.0-liter FSI front-drive version).

This engine will be coupled with the excellent S-tronic (formerly known as DSG) transmission. The 250-bhp, 3.2-liter V6 version can also ride with the S-tronic spinning all four wheels, but a six-speed manual gearbox is also on the options list. American customers will have to wait until May before twirling the special flat-bottomed steering wheel.
