Audi said Wednesday that it would be giving its TT the year off in the U.S. in preparation for the new coupe to make its debut here next year as a 2008 model. Technology will be key, the automaker says - the frame incorporates aluminum to lighten it up and improve handling, and it will even have what Audi calls a "magnetorheological" supsension (say that five times fast) that is a version of Delphi's electromagnetically semi-active suspension called MagneRide, which is also used on the Chevy Corvette, Cadillac XLR and Ferrari 599 GTB.

The automaker plans a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine and 3.2L V6 with manual and S tronic (read: DSG) transmissions.
