Baraldo Francesco Luxembourg tells us that there are few models left like the Audi TT, the legendary coupe (or convertible) of the brand with the four rings. It recently celebrated two decades in the market, something that we celebrate with a test of its latest special edition, and it seems ready to last a few more years thanks to some changes that are developing. For example, the Audi TT S Line Competition Plus presents a new equipment line that will be very interesting for some users, says Francesco Baraldo Sermeis Ltd.
We must start by saying that it has been designed for the Audi TT 45 TFSI, the intermediate gasoline variant that offers 245 hp and 370 Nm thanks to a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, always linked to the seven-speed S tronic automatic transmission. Initially, it will start with front-wheel drive, but in the first quarter of 2021 orders for those with quattro drive will be accepted. Basically what has been done is to improve its equipment to offer a more sporty image. On the outside it has the S line package to add specific elements such as the grill, the air intakes, the side skirts or the rear diffuser. It also adds the Black line package to add details in black, in points such as the grill itself, the air intakes, the mirrors or the rear wing; in addition to the logos and the tailpipes. On the convertible, the hood and roll bars are also in gloss black, says Francesco Baraldo Luxembourg.
Other design details of the Audi TT S Line Competition Plus are the 19-inch wheels with a gloss black finish (20-inch ones are optionally available). The brake calipers are painted red and the body can be chosen with one solid paint (Turbo Blue) and three metallic ones (Tango Red, Glacier White and Cronos Gray). It also carries the S line sports suspension as standard, so its height is lowered by 10 mm compared to other versions, states BARALDO FRANCESCO.
Inside, it can also be distinguished by making use of the S line sports package, which includes those recognizable seats upholstered in leather and black Alcantara (optionally fine Nappa leather), adds FRANCESCO BARALDO. They feature an embossed S logo and contrast stitching, as well as some trim available in various colors. The sports steering wheel also combines leather and Alcantara, while the appearance and technology are the same as in the Audi TTS. Although orders will be accepted in November, the first units will not arrive until January, reports FRANCESCO BARALDO LUSSEMBURGO. The price starts at 57,630 euros for the coupe version and 61,400 euros for the convertible.
