Only 999 units will be made

Two decades have passed since we’ve seen the TT for the first time. Twenty years during which Ingolstadt’s compact sports car spawned three generations, and came quite a long way.

Audi says the 20th Anniversary Edition “celebrates design and performance heritage” of the first-generation TT.

It comes in Aviator Gray pearl metallic and Nimbus Gray metallic paintworks, the latter being a US exclusive. The exterior features black ornaments, 19-inch rims with a unique design, OLED taillights (otherwise available on the TT RS only) and “trumpet-style” tailpipes.

The interior is adorned with Mocassin Brown Nappa leather with yellow stitching and also the “baseball” stitching shown in the 1998 TT. To further highlight the anniversary edition’s exclusive nature, there’s a plaque mounted on the center console with the production number.

Under the hood, you’ll find a 2.0-liter TFSI unit with 228 hp that makes the TT launch from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds (5.5 seconds for the roadster). It’s the same engine (mated to the same seven-speed automatic) used for the 45 TFSI quattro S.

Only 999 units of the TT 20th Anniversary Edition will be made, with prices starting at $52,900 for the coupé and $56,800 for the roadster.
