Audi has announced that the company’s TTS competition is set to become available in the United Kingdom.
Built to celebrate 500,000 examples of the TT being built, the TTS Competition is available in Coupe and Roadster variants and exclusively in Nimbus Grey and Imola Yellow respectively, with a TT RS fixed rear wing, while the Roadster roof is available in either Black or Grey. Measuring 19-inches in diameter and shod with 225/35 tyres, a set of silver ‘Rotor’ design five-spoke alloy wheels complete the exterior.
Moving inside, there’s an Impulse leather package in Steel Grey with yellow edging and stitching, a leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel and aluminum badges on the door trims bearing the words ’1 of 500?. Standard TTS equipment includes aluminum inlays, xenon plus headlights, magnetic ride damper control system and rear parking sensors.
Powering the TTS is the company’s 2.0 TFSI engine, which generates 200 kW (272 hp) and 350 Nm of torque, allowing the Coupe to crack 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds with the six-speed S tronic transmission (manual 5.5s) before reaching a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
Just 500 units will be built with 120 of those making it to the UK. OTR pricing starts at £38,860 for the Coupe and £42,320 for the Roadster.
