Audi TTS Competition

The stylish Audi TT first debuted in 1998, and while we’ve only seen two generations of the car over the course of 15 years, some 500,000 examples have been sold. To mark the occasion, Audi has created this special TTS Competition model, available as either a coupe or a roadster and limited to just 500 units.

Competition models are set apart from the rest of the TTS range by their unique paint colors – Imola Yellow and Nimbus Gray. Additionally, the limited-run TTS wears new five-spoke, 19-inch alloy wheels and features a fixed rear wing (like the one on the TT RS).

Leather upholstery is found inside the cabin, done up in steel gray with yellow accents. Of course, there are special numbered plaques on the door trims, simply saying “1 of 500.”

Mechanically, the Competition model is no different than your ordinary TTS. Power still comes from a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine, with 272 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque being sent to all four wheels via Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive. Manual and dual-clutch automatic transmissions are available, both with six cogs, and Audi says the TTS Coupe S-Tronic will sprint to 62 miles per hour in just 5.3 seconds.

Audi will begin producing the TTS Competition this October, though it’s unclear exactly how many models will be offered up for US consumption. Scroll down to read Audi’s official press blast.
