Audi TT RS Coupe iconic edition: farewell top coupe version for Europe.

Following the R8 mid-engined petrol supercar, Audi is preparing to say goodbye to the younger TT sports car and introduced its limited special version RS Coupe iconic edition for Europe with a unique aerodynamic body kit.

At the end of last year, Audi announced the farewell TT RS Coupe Heritage Edition for the United States, but then it was not yet known what the fate of the entire TT family would be.

The situation cleared up this spring, when the British magazine Auto Express, citing the head of Audi development department Oliver Hoffman, reported that the production of the current third generation Audi TT would end in 2023 and he would not have a direct successor.

Instead of the TT, the German brand will offer its customers a fundamentally new electric sports car — perhaps larger and certainly heavier.

Well, European petrolheads can console themselves with a farewell special version of the Audi TT RS Coupe iconic edition, which will be released in an edition of 100 copies at a price of 113,050 euros each.

The main feature of the iconic edition version is the advanced Aerokit aerodynamic body kit that increases the downforce at high speeds: a double front splitter, side flaps and developed sills, an enlarged diffuser in the rear bumper and a large fixed rear wing on the trunk lid.

The Aerokit is finished in high-gloss black, as are the 20-inch wheels, brake calipers, mirror housings and grille, and iconic edition badging is etched into the tinted rear side windows. Body color — only gray Nardo Grey.

In the cabin of the farewell sports car, the buyer will receive upholstery in nappa leather and Alcantara with yellow stitching, commemorative inscriptions and embroideries, a number plate and a top Bang & Olufsen audio system.

The technical filling is standard for the RS version: a 2.5-liter petrol “turbo” produces a maximum of 400 hp. and 480 Nm, it is docked with a 7-speed «automatic» S tronic type DCT (with two clutches).

The drive is full, the power to the rear wheels is taken by a multi-plate clutch with electro-hydraulic control.

The suspension is equipped with adaptive dampers Audi Magnetic Ride. Curb weight — 1475 kg. The coupe accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, with a top speed of 280 km/h.

Orders for the Audi TT RS Coupe iconic edition are already being accepted, but deliveries will not start until the first quarter of 2023. The price of 113,050 euros seems biting against the background of the standard Audi TT RS Coupe (from 72,500 euros), but for collectors these are trifles, then reselling a limited model can be even more expensive.

We add that the peak of Audi TT sales in Europe, according to the CarSalesBase resource, fell on 2007 — then 38,335 copies were sold, in 2021 the demand was 5812 units, in the first half of 2022 — 2749 units.

For comparison, let’s say that the leader of the compact sports car segment in Europe is now the BMW Z4, from January to June of this year it sold 4132 units.
