AUDI IS PRODUCING a limited-run version of its latest newly-updated TT to mark twenty years of the model being on sale. It is called the TT 20 Years and will be available in either coupe or roadster form, with total worldwide production limited to 999 examples.

Drawing inspiration from the original TT Roadster that debuted at the 1998 Tokyo Motor Show, the TT 20 Years will come in a choice of two exterior colours: Arrow Grey or Nano Grey.

The car will feature 19-inch metal gloss, dark grey, five-spoke alloy wheels and gloss black brake callipers. Other exterior design elements include the company’s latest Matrix OLED rear lights, and the car will wear special anniversary badging.

The interior of the car also harks back to the original concept which featured upholstery inspired by the leather of a baseball glove. With fine Nappa leather in Moccasin Brown with Panuka contrasting stitching throughout, the interior of this special edition TT looks exceptionally good.

Powering the limited-run TT is a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, which is referred to as the 45 TFSI, under Audi’s somewhat confusing naming strategy. It produces 245hp and 370Nm of torque and is good enough to see the car reach 100km/h from rest in 5.9 seconds. It also gets a seven-speed S tronic automatic gearbox and an all-wheel drive transmission.

It’s not yet clear how many, if any, examples will be allocated for the Irish market, but with just 999 units to be made available globally, demand for this car should be high.
