We may even see the Special Edition in Australia, with Audi's local office confirming it will measure customer interest before putting its hand up.
As with the regular TT S models, the Special Edition coupe and cabrio are powered by a 2.0 litre TFSI engine developing a healthy 200kW and 350Nm.
Customers have the choice of a manual or six-speed S-tronic automatic, sending power to all four 19-inch wheels via Audi’s Quattro permanent all-wheel-drive system.
The Coupe version can achieve 0-100km/h in 5.3 seconds (5.5 for the manual) on its way to a limited top speed of 250 km/h.
The auto also has it over the manual with fuel consumption, achieving 7.7 l/100km compared with the manual’s 7.9 l/100km.
It’s a similar story in the Roadster, which is slightly slower with the 0-100km/h sprint at 5.5 seconds for the auto and 5.7 for the manual. Fuel economy is rated at 7.9 and 8.1 l/100km/h respectively.
Interior features include an “Impulse” leather package in steel grey with the edges and stitching dyed “Imola” yellow. Each car has an aluminium badge on the door trim, stating “1 of 500” rather than an individual number.
Production begins in October, and is limited to a combined total for the Coupe and Roadster of 500 units.
