Audi bids farewell to the TT brand with the Roadster Final Edition
It was not news that Audi would discontinue the TT and R8 brands in 2024. However, the German automaker has unveiled the TT Roadster Final Edition convertible as a farewell tribute to three generations of the sportscar. The final edition of this convertible will be limited to 50 units and only available in the United States.
Audi TT Roadster Final Edition exterior and chassis
The Audi TT Roadster Final Edition is finished in an Audi-exclusive Goodwood Green pearl effect exterior paint, which was first seen on the TT series in 1998. It also gets an S-line exterior package, which includes matte grey paint on the bumper trim and side trim elements, as well as S-line badging on the rear fender. The grey convertible top, which was previously only seen on the 2019 TT Roadster 20th Anniversary edition, complements the grey accents of the S-line exterior. While nothing much has changed on the chassis front, this Final Edition TT gets adaptive dampers and forged 20-inch spoke wheels.
Audi TT Roadster Final Edition interiors
The interior of the Audi TT Roadster Final Edition is finished in Palomino Brown leather and features the original TT's baseball stitch on the seats, steering wheel, gear lever, door armrests, and centre console. The instrument cluster's airbag cap and hood are wrapped in black leather. The interiors have carbonfibre inlays. Aside from that, the interiors are identical to the standard TT.
Audi TT Roadster Final Edition powertrain
The Audi TT Roadster Final Edition is mechanically unchanged. It has the same 2-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 225bhp and 350Nm and is mated to a 7-speed DCT as the regular model. The TT Roadster also gets a Quattro AWD drivetrain. This sports car can sprint from 0-100kmph in 5.5 seconds.
Audi TT Roadster Final Edition features
On the features front, the Audi TT Final Edition gets a 12.3-inch HD virtual cockpit that supports wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It also gets a 12-speaker Bang and Olufsen audio system. The S sport seats on the TT Roadster have a neck-level heating function as well as built-in seatbelt microphones for optimising Bluetooth and voice recognition operation.
The Audi TT was produced from 1998 to 2023, spanning three generations, but sadly for TT fans, this sportscar will no longer be available in 2024. With only 50 units produced exclusively for the US market, the TT Roadster Final Edition is poised to bid farewell to the iconic series.
