Audi’s iconic TT bows out with Final Edition model
After 25 years, Audi is wrapping up production of its TT with a special edition version, ahead of a rumoured EV replacement
Audi is bidding farewell to its iconic sports car, the Audi TT, with a Final Edition model, as its production ends later this year.
The TT Final Edition will be available as a coupé or roadster, as well as in the high-performance TTS version, and will go on sale in March, priced from £41,910.
First deliveries are expected in April, and can come finished as standard in Tango Red, Glacier White or Chronos Grey metallic paint.
The original TT was first introduced in 1995 at the Frankfurt Motor Show as the Audi TT prototype study, and production began in 1998.
Featuring exclusive design touches, the TT Final Edition opts for a stealthy look, with a black styling pack, black Audi rings and badging, black door mirrors, black tailpipes, and a fixed rear spoiler also finished in black.
Roadster models also benefit from rollover bars and wind diffuser finished in black.
Inside, the TT Final Edition boasts leather-finished armrests in the doors, door pull handles, and trim on the centre console as part of the extended leather pack.
An Alcantara steering wheel with red stitching and 12 o'clock marker also feature, while Tango red inserts can be found on the seats, air vents, and centre console (coupé only).
Audi’s Technology Pack, which adds MMI Navigation Plus with MMI Touch and Audi Connect Infotainment Services, are included as standard.
Meanwhile, TTS versions also come bundled with the firm’s Comfort & Sound Pack, which includes a Bang & Olufsen sound system, a reversing camera and parking sensors.
To coincide with the launch of the TT Final Edition, Audi has streamlined its model offering of the sports coupé, reducing the outgoing line-up of 11 model derivatives to six: S Line, Black Edition, Final Edition, S Final Edition, RS, and RS Sport Edition.
The move comes as the UK remains one of the largest markets for the TT. According to Audi, In 2022, a total of 2,672 UK sales represented over 33 percent of global sales volumes for the model.
Following more than two decades of being on the market, the Audi TT is poised for a major change as it transitions into an electric vehicle. It has been reported that rather than remaining a compact sports car, the TT is to become something else entirely - a stylish, four-door electric crossover, which is expected to arrive next year.
