Audi ends TT production after 25 years
Production of the Audi TT is ending after 25 years of sales in some markets, but the legendary sports car is being shipped in style.
The current third generation TT has been sold in Australia since 2014. It has been widely reported in Europe and the US that it will be the final version as there is no word from Audi on a replacement.
To commemorate the end of the third generation car and possibly the TT name, Audi detailed a number of Final Edition models. The Audi TT Final Edition range will go on sale in the UK in March ahead of first customer deliveries in April.

At this point, it’s unclear if Audi plans to offer these Final Edition models. The full TT, TT S and TT RS coupe ranges are all still listed on the local website for now, after the convertible and manual variants were dropped in 2019.
We’ve reached out to Audi Australia and will update this story as soon as we hear about it.
Dedicated to the UK, the Final Edition models come in both standard TT and hotter TT S body styles, with both coupé and roadster body styles. They follow the TT RS Iconic Edition, the runout version of the flagship TT with a five-cylinder engine.
On the outside they have a black styling package consisting of a black Audi badging, black door mirrors, black tailpipes and a black fixed rear spoiler.
Convertible models have a black roll bar and wind diffuser, while coupe models get privacy glass.
They also have 20-inch matte gray diamond-cut alloy wheels as standard, with sportier TT S models getting anthracite black alloy wheels with a gloss-turned finish instead.
Buyers can choose from three colors by default: Tango Red, Glacier White, and Chronos Gray.
Inside there’s an extended leather package, an Alcantara steering wheel with red stitching and 12 o’clock marker, and Tango Red accents on the seats, air vents and center console.
Other interior features include a Bang & Olufsen sound system, satellite navigation, keyless entry, reversing camera and front and rear parking sensors.
The Audi TT was shown for the first time as a prototype study at the 1995 IAA. It went on sale in other markets in 1998, with the Australian launch following a year later.
The current TT model is the third generation and has been on sale since 2014. It received a small facelift in 2019.
“Few models have stood the test of time as well as the Audi TT,” said Andrew Doyle, Director of Audi UK.
“The sports coupe’s clean, Bauhaus-inspired lines look just as fresh today as they did back in 1998, and to celebrate the model’s incredible success here in the UK, our Final Edition brings together everything our customers love about this iconic model.”
The Audi TT lineup is currently priced locally from $84,000 before road cost for the 45 TFSI quattro and ranges to $141,300 before road cost for the TT RS.
