It's okay to feel conflicted about the prospect of a new Audi TT. We do. The first generation landed in as a prefab classic sporting a visually striking closed.
And soon everyone in the land of petrol and noise was talking about this wondrous new Audi: The German engineers said the styling of the original TT was very Bauhaus.
This sounded important, so when I reviewed the car I pulled a serious face and said: Every single TT you see is being driven down the M23 by a woman with a raffish scarf and orange skin. Audi had made a sports car. It was turbocharged and four-wheel-drive and sleek and dynamic and Bauhaus, and it could zoom along at more than mph, and yet it was bought by people who drove it to the staff car park at Gatwick and left it there while they flew to Miami for a spot of light sex with the co-pilot.
With the power of hindsight I can see why.
They come across as friendly and Noddyish. Plainly Audi has now arrived at the same conclusion, and as a result the new TT has lost the rounded edges. There are sharp creases and acute angles all over it, and I think it looks absolutely terrific. But what I liked even more was the instrument binnacle, because you can set it up to be whatever you want it to be. Speedo and rev counter.

Or a sat nav map, or a radio tuner. Funnily it is a touch narrower than its predecessor, less curvy in the flanks. The TT is an extremely polished machine.
The styling harks back to the original, with a sharper edge between roof and rear deck. But it is the interior that Audi is shouting about, more so than any other aspect of the new TT.
The iconic rotary fresh air vents have been reconfigured: How to explain this? Right in front of the driver is a wide, irregular TFT thin-film transistor display. So you can have the satnav with small speedometer and rev counter, or perhaps larger control displays alongside your MP3 music from your phone. This is deeply impressive, and the way forward for other Audis too.
Interesting too that Audi took the decision here, along with the forthcoming new R8, to direct the information at the driver, with the result that the passenger has a much less satisfactory view of, say, the satnav map. Other future Audis will take a more conventional approach with the map in the centre of the car. So they will wait with baited breath for the new model. And, we think, risk being somewhat underwhelmed when it arrives. Well, it looks so predictably similar to the previous TT.
Yet if you are a TT lover you are going to be bowled over by the new interior, which raises the game to a whole new level.
