If the Audi TT and Toyota GR Supra make anything clear, it’s that you don’t necessarily have to buy a very expensive Porsche 911 for real sports car fun. The performance is fine and the consumption will surprise you.
Both cars are available with much more powerful engines than the turbocharged tweeliters we tested. However, as far as we are concerned, they leave little to be desired. For example, the 245 hp Audi TT sprints to 100 km / h in 5.8 seconds. The slightly more powerful Toyota GR Supra suffers more from wheelspin, but still needs two tenths less.

That’s how fast the Audi TT and Toyota GR Supra are
If you want to merge smoothly on the German autobahn – safety first, don’t you think – you can immediately go up to 200 km / h. In addition, the backlog of the Audi is up to a full second. You can keep banging until the well-known electronic control cousin closes the tap at 250 km/h. Both cars take the shifting off your hands. In the Audi, a 7-speed S tronic transmission makes life easy for the driver, in the Toyota an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission is at your service. It also comes from BMW and does everything slightly better than the Audi’s dual-clutch transmission. It is more alert, faster and more refined.
That’s how economical the Toyota GR Supra is
Sporty performance no longer has to be accompanied by exorbitant fuel consumption. The Toyota GR Supra in particular demonstrates this convincingly. On average, it burns only 7.7 liters of petrol per 100 kilometers. Converted, that is almost 1 in 13 – including the performance measurements. It looks like a hybrid! Of course it isn’t. in fact, the engine in the GR Supra doesn’t even come from Toyota, but from BMW.
Fuel consumption Audi TT 45 TFSI
With a petrol consumption of 8.0 l/100 km (1 in 12.5), the Audi is slightly thirstier, but we will not send it to the Anonymous Benzinists for it. Incidentally, it is striking that both test cars are quite close to the specified WLTP consumption. In both cases, the practical consumption is only 0.7 l/100 km above. Many electric cars can learn something from that.
Because the powertrain of the Toyota GR Supra is slightly better than that of the Audi TT, the profit on this part goes to the Japanese. Thanks to BMW…
