The Artistry of the TT Roadster Final Edition

Crafted with a meticulous eye for detail, the TT Roadster Final Edition dons the Audi exclusive Goodwood Green pearl effect, a sophisticated paint selection that echoes the original color palette of the TT lineage. This bespoke green is complemented by the S line exterior package, now gracing the third generation of the TT for the first time and accentuated by the platinum gray matte finish that adorns the bumper and side trims, deliberately devoid of badging to underscore its unique stature.

The convertible top, a tasteful gray that can seamlessly transition the car from a closed coupe to an open-air roadster in a mere 10 seconds—even while in motion—builds on the model’s luxurious versatility. Below, the 20×9-inch 10-Y-spoke design forged wheels are not only visually striking but are engineered to contribute to the vehicle’s exceptional handling dynamics.

Inside the Cockpit: Where Elegance Meets Excellence

The TT Roadster Final Edition’s cabin is a sanctuary of refined style, where the Palomino Brown leather interior creates a rich, tactile experience, recalling the classic baseball stitch seats of the first generation. The addition of Audi exclusive Palomino Brown stitching throughout the cabin complements the leather’s warm tones, while carbon fiber inlays punctuate the interior with a contemporary sports flair.

Engineered to Excite: The Performance of the TT Roadster Final Edition

Beneath its sculpted hood lies a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, a powerplant that delivers a robust 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, paired impeccably with a 7-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission and Audi’s legendary quattro all-wheel drive. This drivetrain ensures that the car’s performance matches its beautiful design. The addition of Audi magnetic ride with a 10mm ride height reduction only heightens the TT’s agility and responsiveness.

A Nod to History, A Leap Towards Tomorrow

The TT name is steeped in racing lore, referencing the storied Tourist Trophy competition, and symbolizing Audi’s competitive spirit. Moreover, this final edition not only commemorates past glories but also the innovative strides Audi has made with the TT—pioneering developments such as the virtual cockpit and OLED taillights.

An Exclusive Acquisition

As we approach the sun set of the 2023 model year, the Audi TT Roadster Final Edition emerges not just as a vehicle, but as a piece of contemporary automotive history, available for a select few to own at $67,800, plus a $1,095 destination charge.

Lastly, this particular edition stands as a hallmark of Audi’s unwavering quest for excellence, weaving together a rich heritage, masterful craftsmanship, and forward-thinking innovation to forge a driving experience that will resonate well beyond the moment its last model rolls off the showroom floor.
