Spy shots of the next-generation Audi TT β€” in both coupe and convertible versions β€” engaged in cold-weather testing somewhere in reindeer country, surfaced on South Africa's Wheels24 earlier today. The new model β€” predicted nearly spot-on by the the spies at Germany's AutoBild in the spec image (bottom) from a few months ago (ok, minus that huge front air dam) β€” loses the radical, Bauhaus-inspired design of the first generation in favor of a more conventional, cleaner shape. It's still a weird little bugger though, which we'll see for the first time in Geneva, if all goes according to gossip.
