Say Hello To The Sporty Audi TT S Line Competition Plus

Sports Cars / Comments

Fixed rear wing and gloss black wheels form part of the tasty upgrades.

Today's Audi TT may not be a design icon like the first-generation TT was, but it's still an appealingly sporty compact coupe and, in the case of the fire-breathing TT RS, one of its fastest cars, too. To further entice buyers, Audi has introduced the Audi TT S line competition plus in Germany. Audi's latest TT is sold with the 45 TSFI engine; the turbocharged unit produces 242 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque and comes paired with a seven-speed S tronic transmission. Those outputs fall between the US-spec TT and TTS.

The S Line competition plus is primarily about its appearance, though, with numerous sporty bits and pieces to set it apart. Walk up to the latest TT and you'll notice 19-inch alloy wheels with a five-arm polygon design, finished in gloss black, with 20-inch 10-Y spoke wheels being optionally available.


This same high-gloss black finish is applied to the Singleframe grille, exterior mirrors, diffuser insert, sill trim stripes, and the hard-to-miss rear wing. The familiar Audi rings and the exhaust tailpipes also receive a black finish. Available as both a Roadster and Coupe, the former gets a black hood and a roll-over bar in high-gloss black, while the Coupe features available dark privacy glazing at the back. Curiously, Audi shared just three images of the latest TT and no visuals of the front.

A suspension lowered by 0.4 inches is fitted and features dynamic damper tuning. Seen here in Turbo Blue, the TT S line competition can also be ordered in Tango Red, Chronos Grey, and Glacier White.

Inside, the racy cabin is characterized by dark finishes. Fine Nappa leather is available but leather and Alcantara is standard, along with embossed S logos in the headrests. Audi's bright 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster is standard and there are more splashes of Alcantara, matt brushed aluminum, and color contrast stitching to brighten things up.

In Germany, the TT S line competition has a starting price of €47,316 ($55,744) for the Coupe and €49,655 ($58,499) for the Roadster, with deliveries slated to begin in December. There is no official word from Audi on the TT S line competition equipment line being sold in the US. The future of the Audi TT may be in doubt, but models like the S line competition make us hope that the sports coupe isn't going anywhere.
