Audi will celebrate the end of an era with a special limited edition model to mark the final production of its ground breaking sportscar. Aptly named the TT Final Edition, it’s based on the 45 TFSI quattro variant.
The German car maker has added its own distinctive styling and significant additional equipment over and above the standard model, paying tribute to a vehicle that has received both popular and critical acclaim throughout its 25 year production.
The TT 45 TFSI quattro Final Edition scores more than $14,000 worth of added equipment for just $5,900 more than the standard version, and will be available in four colours; Turbo blue, Glacier white metallic, Chronos grey metallic and Tango red metallic.
The wide single-frame grille with simple quattro badging, large air intakes and LED headlights giving it an aggressive look. This is further enhanced with the addition of an S line Competition Plus exterior package and unique, 19-inch Audi Sport wheels.
Gloss black wheels are joined by a fixed rear wing and exterior styling package in the same colour, including the Audi rings on the front and rear, the auto-folding electric wing mirrors and the exhaust tips, rear diffuser and side trim.
On the side sills, Audi rings decals are a nod to the brand’s motorsport past. Red brake callipers and a muscular competition body kit perfectly complement the TT’s design. Customers can also opt for 20-inch Audi Sport alloy wheels in a 10-Y-spoke design.
A true driver’s car, the TT Final Edition delivers the performance and handling to match its sporty looks. Its 2.0-litre TFSI powerplant produces 180kW of power and 370Nm of torque on its way to 100km/h in just 5.1 seconds.
Mated to a seven-speed S-tronic transmission and with power going down to all four wheels through quattro permanent all-wheel drive, the TT Final Edition delivers razor-sharp handling, enhanced with electromechanical progressive steering and power assistance.
Inside, the limited run model sports a minimalist layout, with a flat-bottomed steering wheel finished in an Alcantara/leather combination, complete with 12 o’clock marker, and coloured interior elements in Slate Grey or Turbo Blue.
The electric S sport front seats are finished in fine Nappa leather with contrasting stitching and S embossing, and feature electric lumbar and side bolsters. Customers can choose between Black with Ara Blue stitching or Black with Express Red stitching.
The leather package also extends to the armrests, door handles and the centre console. Interior ambient lighting enhances the ‘cockpit’ feel at night while inlays in brushed aluminium create the perfect counterpoint to the simple, clean design.
State-of-the-art technology has been seamlessly integrated into the cabin, with Audi’s virtual cockpit plus, complete with a sport display, occupying the central position in front of the driver.
Audi’s MMI navigation has also been integrated into the virtual cockpit, while smartphone connectivity, wireless charging, an 8-speaker sound system and DAB+ digital radio are all standard.
The TT Final Edition also comes with attention assist, side assist and hold assist, Audi’s parking system plus, front and rear, and a rear view camera and visual display. Tyre pressure monitoring is also standard.
The Audi TT 45 TFSI quattro Final Edition is available in strictly limited numbers at Audi dealerships now, and is priced from $88,479 plus on-roads. If you’re keen on one and need finance, talk to CreditOne.
