Audi is sending the TT off in style with the launch of the new TT RS Coupe Iconic Edition, limited to just 100 units in Europe of which just 11 examples are bound for British shores.
The bold and aggressive looks of the Audi TT RS Coupe Iconic Edition immediately make an impression. All units are painted in Audi’s famed Nardo Grey and come equipped with standard matrix LED headlights and a gloss black front grille with a matte black frame.
Audi’s designers have also equipped the car with gloss black side skirts, wing mirrors, and badges. A set of striking 20-inch gloss black alloy wheels have also been developed for the car that have a seven-spoke design and sit over a set of black brake calipers. Adding to the bold looks of the sports car are partially frosted rear triangular windows with ‘iconic edition’ lettering.
All 100 examples of the car will also be equipped as standard with the available Aerokit. This adds a pronounced front splitter, canards, and blades in the front air intakes. It also includes a fixed carbon fiber rear wing and a revised rear diffuser, both designed to increase downforce over the rear axle, planting the TT RS to the pavement and improving cornering performance.
Some distinctive touches have also been made to the interior of the TT RS Coupe Iconic Edition. There are RS sports seats fitted as standard with fine Nappa side panels in jet grey and center panels in black Alcantara. Yellow honeycomb stitching adds to the striking looks while ‘iconic edition’ embroidery is also embedded into the Alcantara of the seats. Various other surfaces are finished in black Alcantara with yellow contrast stitching, including the steerng wheel. There is also a numbered badge on the shifter.
Powering the car is the same 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder as the standard TT RS, pumping out 394 hp and 354 lb-ft (480 Nm) of torque. This engine is mated to a seven-speed S tronic transmission powering all four wheels. The Iconic Edition can hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.7 seconds and a 174 mph (280 km/h) top speed. UK prices start at £87,650 ($99,234).
