Audi TTS Competition celebrates 500k TTs soldThu, 15 Aug 2013
The Audi TTS Competition (pictured) celebrates 500k TTs built
It started off as something of a hairdressers car, but over the course of its 15 year history – and two iterations – the Audi TT has grown to be a credible sport car and a decent seller for Audi. That’s meant a total of 500,000 TTs have been solid since the TT first hit showrooms back in 1998, so Audi are celebrating with a new limited edition model – the Audi TTS Competition.
The TTS Competition will be limited to just 500 units and will come in a choice of either Imola Yellow and Nimbus Grey, as a coupe or a roadster.
Extra goodies – apart from the bespoke paint job – are a set of new 19″ alloys and a fixed rear wing that looks like it came off the TT RS, steel grey impulse leather on the inside with yellow stitching and a plaque denoting the TT as “1 of 500″.
Under the bonnet things are the same as the regular TTS, but as that means 268bhp from the 2.0 TFSI engine – enough for 0-62mph in 5.3 seconds (well, as long as you opt for the six-speed S tronic).
We have now idea how many – if any – of the TTS Competition’s run of 500 cars are coming to the UK, but we’ll update when we know.
