If you ask me, the earlier generation of 3. Audi TT was one of ugliest models in the whole Audi range thanks to its rounded shape and features. With the 2015 Audi TT, the German automaker has got rid of most of the ugly bits and the new generation model looks a lot more sharper. The 2015 Audi TT was also unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. Under the hood, the 2015 Audi TT comes with three engine options to choose from. The base variant is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder TDI engine with standard stop-start that puts out 184 hp and 280 pound-feet of torque. It will go from stand still to 62 miles per hour in a not so impressive 7.2 seconds and this variant has not been confirmed for the USA as of now. The two variants US will get are: the base model of TT will be powered by Audi’s popular 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 230hp and 272 pound-feet of torque. For those who looking for more grunt, the top of the line Audi TTS has 310 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque to its disposal from its 2.0T engine. It does the 0-62 mph run in just 4.7 seconds and the top speed is electronically limited to 155mph.
Why do we love it? Giving it the much needed design overhaul, Audi has given the model a new lease of life. The sharper bodylines and reshapes frontend has made the new Audi TT a good looking entry level sportscar.
Price – The base price is rumored to be close to $54,000 2. 2015 BMW M3/M4
Introduced at the end of last year, the 2015 M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe sporting the company’s new nomenclature for the first time is definitely one of the best cars to go on sale this year. There is no doubt that the two high-performance versions of the new 3 and 4 Series are drop dead gorgeous. In the new models, the naturally aspirated V8 has been swapped for a twin-turbocharged 3.0 liter inline-six engine. The 3 liter inline-six makes 425 turbocharged horsepower which is marginally better than the 4 liter V8, but what’s more interesting is that the power evenly spread over a broad rev range of 5,500rpm to 7,300rpm – which guarantees linear power delivery.
Why do we love it? There is a long list of reasons why we absolutely love the new BMW M3 and M4, but to sum it up, when we tested the car, we could hardly find any faults with it.
Price – The prices start at $62,925. 1. Ferrari California T
At the Geneva Motor Show this year, Ferrari unveiled the new California that now comes with a turbocharged engine. Named 1. Ferrari California T, it is the first car by Ferrari to come with a turbocharged engine after the iconic Ferrari F40 that was introduced back in 1987. A new 3.9-liter V8 engine with forced induction powers the California T. Ferrari says that there is zero turbo lag from its innovative new engine, which produces 560 hp and 557 pound-feet of torque.
Why do we love it? The Ferrari California was long due for a design and styling upgrade. The refreshed styling of the California T isn’t quite according to our expectations, but the subtle changes have made a world of difference. The Ferrari California is now a very attractive option in its price range.
Price – The base price of the 2015 Ferrari California T is $240,000
