Audi TT 20th Anniversary Edition Is An Expensive Tribute

Special Edition / Comments

Audi's funky coupe and roadster are two decades old.

Early last month we brought you details of the 2019 Audi TT 20th Anniversary Edition, but Audi didn't state whether it'd be a global model or not. Today, we have our answer. Audi has released additional photos and announced official US pricing for the coupe and roadster, both featuring several design bits taken directly from the original that still has a loyal following. The coupe has a base price of $52,900 and while the roadster starts at $56,800, neither figure includes destination. To compare, a regular base TT coupe starts at $44,900 and the roadster at $48,400.

Now in its third generation, the limited edition TTs comes with a choice of two exterior colors, Aviator Gray pearl metallic or Nimbus Gray metallic, the latter being exclusive to the US. Homage to the original TT can be found in several places, among them Moccasin brown Fine Nappa leather with custom-made yellow contrast stitching featuring the so-called "baseball" stitching from the original.

Audi even went a bit further with the nostalgia, going back to the TTS Roadster concept study that was unveiled at the 1995 Tokyo Motor Show. Styling examples include high-gloss black exterior trim, unique 19-inch 5-arm-design gunmetal wheels with summer tires, and trumpet-style stainless steel exhaust. There are even OLED taillights normally available on only one other current TT variant, the hardcore TT RS. You'll also find "20 Years of TT" badges on the front fenders.

Step inside and you'll find the S Sport seats, door armrests, steering wheel, and center console all covered in that lovely Moccasin-colored leather. All 20th Anniversary Editions TTs come with the Technology package as standard, which includes the highly regarded Audi virtual cockpit, MMI navigation plus, and smartphone integration. Wireless charging is also standard.

Under the hood is the familiar 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 228 hp and paired to the seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch gearbox. Zero to 62 mph is clocked at 5.2 seconds for the coupe and 5.5 seconds for the roadster.

Audi previously stated only 999 examples are planned, which we assume is global. A precise US allocation figure was not given, but sales are already underway, so chances are it's a first come, first served type of thing.
