Audi TT "Open Sky" Concept Study

15 September 2001

At IAA 2001 in Frankfurt, Magna presented the attractive ""Open Sky"" concept study based on the Audi TT. This additional body top variant combines the characteristic features of a roadster with those of a coupe.

The Audi TT ""Open Sky"" concept study is an independent further development by Magna Steyr, and it is an additional proof of the Austro-American automotive supplier's styling, body top and prototype design know-how and creativity, ably supported by the group's recognized complete vehicle competence. The reasons why the development engineers of the Magna Steyr Engineering Center in Graz decided to base their concept study, which perfectly captures the spirit of the time, on the Audi TT, are simple: they know the Audi TT inside out. After all, the production-fit development of the TT Coupe and the TT Roadster on behalf of Audi AG was their achievement.

The main feature of the ""Open Sky"" concept exhibited in Frankfurt is an easily removable top consisting of two halves made of glass fiber composite. A sophisticated device guarantees that both roof halves, once removed, can be fitted quickly and easily in the boot. At the push of a button, the device activates the roof halves; a further push of the button lets them disappear in the recess.
