That Audi seems to get a kick out of teasing us no matter the time of year is nothing new. Just before the official arrival of Fall in the States, the German automaker gave us a sneak peek at their new drop top, the 2015 Audi TT Roadster. Their latest attempt to fill their showrooms and empty our wallets comes in the form of this just revealed Audi TT Sportback Concept, gracefully refined, yet still incredibly powerful. Unveiled to the press at the Paris Motor Show, the Audi TT Sportback Concept, unlike the growing size and bulk of their rivals, recognizes that it's not just might that makes right; it's form and function, too, in the car world. Offering more of a utilitarian option, the five-door hatchback looks very close to production-ready than the usual concept, complete with Audi's signature big grille, the TT's iconic sloped roofline, and broad fenders. And, in case you didn't notice the available trunk space, Audi made sure to call that out for us, too. Under the hood, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder (it is an Audi, afterall) provides 400 horses and 332 lb-ft of torque via the seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch trans with the trademark all-wheel drive system. Motor over past the jump to see more of what's in store from Audi, which can be hitting showrooms near you sooner than you think.
