Audi has, since 1998, built 500,000 TT: to celebrate this, it is building 500 TTS Limited edition – and 120 are coming to the UK.
The TTS Limited Edition Coupe will cost £38,860, with the Roadster alternative costing £42,320. Both are £2815 more expensive than the standard TTS models.
The price you pay for something that’s strictly limited in edition? Nope – because both models carry £5665 of extra kit.
So, what’s included for the money? Well, both boast an Audi Exclusive paint finish: Nimbus Grey for the Coupe and Imola Yellow for the Roadster. There are also 19-inch five-spoke alloys and a TT RS-style fixed rear wing.
Impulse Grey leather with ‘baseball’ stitching is standard inside, as is DVD sat nav, BOSE stereo, Bluetooth, light and rain sensors and an interior lighting package.
Sadly, the Limited Edition TTS cars aren’t individually numbered. They instead carry a ‘1 of 500’ plaque on the door insert.
As a reminder, the TTS boasts a 2.0-litre TFSI motor producing a helpful 272hp; that equals, in the coupe, 0-62mph in 5.3 seconds. Decent, if not eyeball-popping pace.
The flash TTs are on sale now, doing their own small bit to grow the number of Audi’s groundbreaking small sports car further. Who’d have thought, back in 1998, that it would be such a significant machine..?
