2008 Audi TT 2.0T 2dr Convertible (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)
Wait -- let me wipe the silly grin off my face. How much fun can you have in a car? Design, build, performance are all first rate. First Audi I have owned and I am impressed. It's quick, nimble, but comfortable and accomodating. The interior looks and feels so much better than the Mercedes and BMW we test drove (forego the standard Alcantara upholstery - the Napa leather upgrades are worth the extra money). It turns heads wherever it goes.
Ultra-sensual looks with the top down. Brilliant engine/transmission combo (2.0T with DSG). Interior design and build that other luxury manufacturers should emulate. Fairly quiet ride for a ragtop with taut suspension.
Offer AWD with the 2.0T. The torque-steer and wheel slippage can sometimes be almost overwhelming (although I guess I can blame some of that on my right foot). Give it keyless ignition.
