Audi bids adieu to TT moniker with Final Edition model
German carmaker Audi has revealed the Final Edition version of the TT model. The company is discontinuing the iconic moniker after 25 years of production. The vehicle gets a black styling pack that adds a gloss black finish to the badges, door mirrors, rear spoiler, and tailpipes. The sports car is available in two variants, namely coupe and roadster.
Why does this story matter?
- Ever since its arrival in 1998, the TT has been one of the most popular cars in Audi's lineup.
- The vehicle was also used in various motorsport events such as the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) series and 24 hours of Le Mans.
- However, with electrification taking the center stage in recent years, the company has decided to retire the TT moniker.
The sports car flaunts a boot-mounted spoiler and all-LED lighting
The 2023 Audi TT Final Edition retains most of the design elements from the standard model and flaunts a sculpted bonnet, a blacked-out trapezoidal grille, a front splitter, and sleek LED headlamps with integrated DRLs. It is flanked on the sides by ORVMs, frameless windows, flared wheel arches, and 20-inch alloy wheels. Wrap-around LED taillights and a boot-mounted spoiler are available at the rear.
It is backed by a 2.0-liter, turbo-petrol engine
The 2023 Audi TT Final Edition draws power from a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine that churns out a maximum power of 228hp and a peak torque of 350Nm. The mill is linked to a 7-speed DCT gearbox with a "Quattro" all-wheel-drive system.
The car features Bang & Olufsen sound system
On the inside, the 2023 Audi TT Final Edition has a sporty two-seater cabin and features an all-black dashboard with contrasting red-colored trims, leather upholstery on the door handles, door armrests, and center console, keyless entry, and racing-style seats with Alcantara finish. It packs Bang and Olufsen premium sound system and an MMI Navigation Plus infotainment panel. Passengers' safety is ensured by multiple airbags.
How much does it cost?
In the UK, the 2023 Audi TT Final Edition will set you back by £41,910 (approximately Rs. 41.44 lakh) for the coupe variant and £43,660 (roughly Rs. 43.17 lakh) for the roadster model. Deliveries are expected to begin in April.
