Audi says goodbye to the TT. Last February, the company announced that its beloved sports car was almost at the end of its range, just like the R8 supercar. But none of these vehicles come out without a host of special trims; Audi has a new TT Roadster Final Edition that is absolutely lovely.
The Audi Exclusive Goodwood Green Pearl paint is a nod to the first generation TT, which offered this color as an option. The roof is gray for the first time, as far as we know, and it matches the matte gray bumpers and side profile accents. And since this Final Edition model is based on the S Line version – a first for the third generation TT – 20-inch wheels come as standard.
But Audi has removed most of the S Line badging on the exterior and interior, and instead of the standard brushed aluminum accents, the final edition opts for carbon fiber. The seats are covered in beautiful Palomino Brown leather, which Audi says is a “modern interpretation” of the TT’s original baseball seats. However, it’s difficult to see exactly what the similarities are.
In terms of performance, the TT Roadster Final Edition comes with a base 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated at 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. It takes this TT 5.5 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour, and all-wheel drive and Magnetic Ride Control are standard. This latest add-on is part of the S Line trim and reduces the ride height by 0.3 inches.
If you want one of the latest TT models, you better act quickly. This car is exclusive to the United States and limited to only 50 units total. That’s right, five zero. The Audi TT Final Edition Roadster costs $68,895, including $1,095 destination charge. Buyers in markets like the UK, Japan and Spain, meanwhile, benefit from other unique special edition TT models.
