We have all heard or read comments from people saying that the TT is a “haidressers” car, much like the Mazda Miata and Volkswagen Beetle.
Now I certainly don’t think so and my opinion on this is that you should drive whatever you like and don’t care about others. But aside from the small & curvy look, what else makes it a “chick car” in people’s mind? I believe even Audi tries to market it to both men and women.
Why? Take a look at the Audi Sport TT Cup drivers. Anything different? No less than four female drivers took part in the event held in Austria. Mikaela Ahlin-Kottulinsky and Gosia Rdest as full season competitors. Rahel Frey and Doreen Seidel as special guest starters.
Doreen Seidel? Yes, she’s no less than the 2008 Playboy Germany playmate of the year! But wait, a playmate racing an Audi TT should appeal to men, no? You bet. But women too as they see a bunch of women that race TTs around the globe. This means that handle well, right? Have a look at their “girl Power” video…
