2023 Audi TT Celebrated With New Limited Edition Before Being Retired for Good

Unless you've been living under a rock recently, then you know the Audi TT and R8 are about to face the chopping block. This makes for a good opportunity to celebrate them, and this is what the four-ring brand's Spanish arm is doing with the smaller model.

Based on the Audi TT Coupe 45 TFSI and limited to 25 copies only to commemorate the model's 25th (and final) year of production, the new proposal is strictly offered in Spain and features some enhancements over the regular car.

Each unit features the S Line Competition Plus Package and comes with a set of 20-inch wheels with a Y-spoke design. Customers can choose between three exterior colors, which are called the Nogaro Blue Pearl Effect, the Glacier White Metallic, and the Tango Red Metallic.

Moving to the cockpit, the new limited-run variant of the Audi TT gets the S Plus sports seats, a flat-bottom multi-function steering wheel, and several carbon fiber accents. Here, the German company also mentions the blue or red stitching depending on the exterior hue. Other gear includes the virtual cockpit, Audi Connect, the brand’s smartphone interface, and the Audi sound system. Matrix LED headlights are also on deck and don't cost any extra pennies.

More on the pricing of the car in a few moments, as first we have to mention the engine, too. And since it builds on the 45 TFSI variant, it is clear that it uses the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit. It kicks out 245 ps (242 hp/180 kW), channeled to the permanent all-wheel drive system via a dual-clutch S tronic transmission. A quick look at the technical chart reveals this model has a 250 kph (155 mph) top speed and can deal with the 0 to 100 kph (0-62 mph) acceleration in a hair over the five-second mark.

Now, about those pricing details, the brand's Spanish arm says the new limited-edition TT Coupe, whose production is capped at only 25 copies, will start from €72,800 (equaling $77,232 at the current exchange rates). The car will be available from November, and it's a pity we don't get it in the United States, where the TT, as well as the R8 supercar, are listed as heritage models on the official website.

Before calling it a story, we will remind you that despite sounding the death knell for the TT and R8, Audi might eventually bring them back, albeit with an electric twist. Chances are the TT might borrow some cues, nuts, and bolts from its bigger, more powerful, and much pricier sibling, the R8, for the electric era. Nonetheless, you may want to take this alleged information with a pinch of salt, as it is a mere rumor for now.
