Audi TT Open Sky or the vainly forgotten concept of 2001

May 30, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

In 2001, the guys from the German company Audi presented a concept called Audi TT Open Sky. The car was shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Audi announced that it was going to stop the further development of the Audi TT sports coupe after the current generation of models ceased to exist. It will happen in a few years. At the same time, we heard from representatives of the brand that the legendary car will definitely receive the receiver. Perhaps the basis of the novelty will be the concept of 2001.

  Since the concept of the Audi TT Open Sky debuted at the motor show in the German city of Frankfurt am Main just a few days after the tragic events in the US (September 11, the twin towers), it is completely understandable why very few people remember this car. Honestly, only this week we caught this concept. Based on the original TT, the concept was developed by the guys from Magna Steyr with the blessing of the guys from Audi.

The concept of Open Sky was a very interesting car. He combined the best of both worlds: the silhouette of a coupe “with the freedom to ride” that a roadster can offer

 He had two removable roof halves made of fiberglass composite. They are neatly folded in the cargo hold, in case the driver wants to experience a sports car like a convertible.

  The original press release talked about the “complex device” in the trunk for storing the top of the roof. Pressing the button installed inside activated this device to extend the two halves. And pressing it once again lowered the roof in the deepening of the cargo floor.

Not so long ago, we wrote that journalists for the first time captured the prototype of the “charged” Audi E-Tron S.
