German Test between TTS Roadster, Z4 Roadster and the new SLK. Winner is the TTS. SLK was doing also very well; very strong engine! On page 7, you will find performance test results. Even though the TTS Roadster weighs 300 Pounds more than the Z4, it ouperforms it quite well.

By the looks of it this TTS with also a manual which in DSG form would knock about 0.5s off it's 0-100mph time and being a Roadster is adding about another 0.3s to this time. That means the stock TTS Coupe with DSG will be as quick as a stock 335i and almost as quick as a stock S5.

Very impressive if you ask me.

P.S.
What Handling track do they use?

...dont know about the handling course.
Well, I also saw a test with a coupe, which was slower from 0-62 miles than this roadster. I guess those figures in the test are as good as it gets. I order to follow an S5, it sure needs a chip; add also an exhaust and you might be quicker.

Audi seriously needs to sit down and think about the number of models they have out right now or will be coming out in the next few years. It's getting crazy stupid and to top things off unless you're driving a S-something your engine options are under powered and the car itself is overpriced.....definitely not worth it.....

That was a useless comment that only showcases your obvious ignorance of everything discusses thus far coupled with utter self-absorption when it comes to driving. Just because we donít drive shitty little cars here and we donít have to suffer through inefficient driving systems which we self-rationalise into something better doesnít mean we all drive POS muscle cars.

I drive my Z4M on downtown Torontoís pothole ridden streets all the time. No bent rimsÖ and I am fine, as is my fiancťe. Perhaps your delicate dierre is not quite used to the suspension and chassis of a proper sports car. As far as I recall, Top Gear and 5th gear both loved the Z4M. The Z4MR ran a very respectable time around the ring and the Z4MC is faster, according to BMW.

Yes, Audi developed the Gallardo on its own. It had no help from that company in Sant'Agata. Of course. Audiís are great driving cars, but they are no BMWís. I would know since Iíve had one Audi and 2 VWís.
