Introduced in 1998, the Audi TT was a style icon and affordable halo car for the Audi brand. The first generation car differed little from the concept car, which debuted in 1995. The original TT was designed Freeman Thomas, who also penned the New Beetle, and J Mays, who would later go on to head design at Ford.
What does TT stand for?
TT is short for Tourist Trophy. Audi chose the TT name in honour of the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy motorcycle race, which NSU (a company later taken over by Audi) ran in successfully and frequently.
