What is it with this thing called timing? For a while I waited patiently to lay my hands on the beautiful Audi's sportier TT version, the TTS.

But the timing to receive the vehicle was sad. The car arrived on a Monday, a day after I lost a dear friend to a motorbike accident. Steve Dlamini-Kabini had enormous love for motor cars. He probably would have said something bizarre in an attempt to describe how beautiful and exciting the car was. Dlamini-Kabini was City Press motoring editor.

I looked at the yellow TTS parked in my driveway but said nothing as the Audi fleet manager was sorting out the paper work.

The TTS is a beautiful car indeed, the type that would make you scream if you were not really saddened by this thing called death.

As the week went by I started to appreciate the TTS for the true sports car it is. Car lovers appreciated its beauty everywhere I went, oblivious to my emotional wounds.

Some interesting bunch came chasing after me one Friday evening. I was on my way from my folk's house when I noticed a TT and a Mini Cooper driving behind me.

My first reaction was to pull over at the next filling station. My admirers did the same. It turned out they were not hijackers, they just wanted to have a look at the car. They stood there taking pictures with smiles all over their faces.

The TT driver said he had seen one at the Johannesburg International Motor Show.

After a few minutes of looking at the TTS without saying anything to me, they went back to their vehicles and drove off. The charm of a yellow car that looks like it has just stepped out of the movie I Robot!

The beauty churns out power output of 195kW and torque stands at 350Nm.

The Audi TTS instantly stands out as the dynamic flagship of the TT model line. The standard 18-inch aluminum wheels are a highlight of the exterior design, as are the headlights, comprising newly designed bi-xenon units with LED daytime running lights.

The TTS is an emotional car. You cannot ignore it.
