Audi TT Ends Production with Final Edition RoadsterNovember 3, 2023
The Audi TT is one of those sports cars that doesn’t often end up in the spotlight; and with its inevitable end in sight after the ‘23 model year, it may just end up being one of those cases where people don’t really miss it until it’s gone.
We’re not trying to suggest that all TT’s are worthy of being instant classics or collectibles, but Audi is putting out one final edition that just might. It’s fittingly referred to as the TT Roadster Final Edition, and it serves as the final capstone on three generations of this nameplate.
First and foremost, the name also gives away that it’s available exclusively as a roadster, featuring a gray convertible top akin to the same one used in the 2019 20th anniversary edition, used now to contrast the Goodwood Green pearl paint– a callback to the first generation TT. It’s joined by other matte gray garnishes, integrated into the S line exterior. Down low, the Final Edition rides on 20-inch 10-spoke wheels, wrapped by 255/30 R20 summer tires taken from the TTS. Another TTS carryover is found behind them: The magnetic ride suspension.
The interior is covered in Palomino Brown leather upholstery, a reference to the first gen’s baseball stitch leather. The Final Edition is standard equipped with an extended leather package, bringing the soft coverings over to the door armrests and center console, among additional leather amenities. The steering wheel stitching is a matching brown, carrying down to the shifter lever and even the floor mats. You can also expect some carbon fiber trimmings here and there. Other creature comforts include neck-level seat heating and microphones built into the seatbelts for better voice recognition.
Beyond that, you can expect the same turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four and 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, putting all 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque to work through the Quattro all-wheel drive system.
You can also expect a starting price of $68,895 with delivery– that is, if you can snag one of them, as the Final Edition is limited to 50 units here in the US, available now.
