AUDI is releasing a special edition of its TT sportscar to mark the end of production of its iconic model.
On sale from March, priced from £41,910, the TT Final Edition is available as a coupe or roadster and also being offered as a high-performance TTS.
First deliveries are due in April.
The TT was first introduced at the 1995 Frankfurt Motor Show as the Audi TT prototype study. It wasn't until three years later that the iconic silhouette of the showcar made the transition into production with only minor cosmetic alterations.
The Mk1 TT is considered one of the most influential car designs of all time and the original's elegant simplicity can still be seen in today's model 25 years later.
"Few models have lasted the test of time as well as the Audi TT," said Andrew Doyle, director Audi UK. "The crisp, Bauhaus-inspired lines of the sports coupe look as fresh today as they did back in 1998 and to mark the model's incredible success here in the UK our Final Edition combines everything our customers love about this iconic model."
Designed to sit towards the top of the TT's specification range, the Final Edition is highly-specified and features exclusive design touches.
The Final Edition is marked out by the black styling pack with black Audi rings and badging, black door mirrors, black tailpipes and a fixed rear spoiler also finished in black.
Roadster models also have rollover bars and wind diffuser finished in black. TT S Final Editions ride on Audi Sport seven-spoke rotor, anthracite black alloys with gloss turned finish.
Inside, extra comfort and convenience features bring the driver-focussed cabin of the TT Final Edition to new levels. The armrests in the doors, door pull handles and trim on the centre console are all finished in leather as part of the extended leather pack.
An Alcantara steering wheel with red stitching and 12 o'clock marker is special to the Final Edition, along with the Tango red inserts on the seats, air vents and centre console (coupÃ© only). Further enhancements include Alcantara-trimmed seats with decorative red stitching and red piping on the floor mats.
Audi's Technology Pack is fitted as standard on TT Final Editions, adding MMI Navigation Plus with MMI Touch and Audi Connect Infotainment Services which allows owners to access live information such as local fuel prices and the weather forecast via the MMI system's high-speed Internet connection.
Pricing for the Final Edition coupe quattro starts from £46,525 with the TTS costing from £54.685. The roadster costs from £43,66, £48,275 in quattro form and £56,435 for the TTS specification model.
To coincide with the launch of the TT Final Edition, Audi has streamlined its model offering of the sports coupe in the UK by reducing the line-up of 11 model derivatives to six: S Line, Black Edition, Final Edition, S Final Edition, RS and RS Sport Edition.
The UK is one of the largest markets for the TT. In 2022, a total of 2,672 UK sales represented over 33 per cent of global sales volumes for the model.
