150 Audi TT ‘20 Years’ editions due on sale in 2019

A special edition variant of the latest Audi TT celebrates the model’s 20-year production run

Audi has released a new special edition version of the TT. Limited to 999 examples globally, 150 of which are coming to the UK, the “TT 20 Years” edition will be on sale in early 2019. UK prices are yet to be confirmed, but we expect them to be around £46,000.

Audi’s turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine will be fitted to the special edition models in two states of tune. The 40 TFSI will have 194bhp and 320Nm of torque, while the 45 TFSI will have 242bhp and 370Nm of torque. 0-62mph figures stand at 6.6 seconds for the former with the latter at 5.9 seconds.

As standard, both engines will be mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission, with the 45 TFSI allowing the option of a manual. Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system will also be available for the 45 TFSI, but only with the seven-speed gearbox.

The interior of the Audi TT 20 Years edition will pay homage to the 1995 Audi TTS Roadster Concept, with the seats, door panels and centre console trimmed in moccasin brown Nappa leather. There will also be unique badging and a serial number sewn into the steering wheel and gear knob.

Available in either coupe or roadster guise, the “TT 20 Years” edition will be treated to exterior tweaks including 19-inch alloy wheels, an updated front bumper, new exhaust tips and Matrix OLED headlights. Audi’s S-Line package is offered as an optional extra, and outfits the special edition model with a more aggressive body kit, sports seats and a 10mm drop in ride-height.
