Audi Launches TTS competition Special Edition [Photo Gallery]
The TTS competition is vailable exclusively in the special paint finishes Imola yellow or Nimbus gray and features a fixed rear wing with bars in a matt aluminum-look finish. The interior can only be had in Steel gray leather with Imola yellow accents while the Roadster's top can be had in Black or Gray. Standard 19-inch wheels feature a five-arm “Rotor” design and are shod with 225/35 tires.
All the cars will feature door trims embossed with “1 of 500”, thus further accentuate the exclusivity of the special edition model.
The powertrain is standard TTS equipment, meaning a 2.0 TFSI engine that delivers 272 PS and 350 Nm of torque to all four wheels via quattro and a six-speed S tronic automatic. For the coupes, that means 0 to 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds and for the Roadsters 5.5 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155.34 mph).
The special edition isn't that impressive on paper, but going from standard TTS to TTS competition costs just €1900, well worth it… if you happen to like yellow.
