The Audi TT is one of those cars that you either love or hate, well the Mk1 TT anyway. It was a strange-looking thing with a bug-like look to it. That was in the late 90s and early 2000s, and if you ask us, it was a design that was way ahead of its time. Here at SXdrv we love them, the boss man in particular. Easily evident when you tour his garages and you can count almost ten of the things. The car became a cult-like classic though, and a mint Mk1 TT is something that’s becoming increasingly sought after. What’s not to like? Great design, an interior that’s well laid out and comfortable, pointless rear setas so you don’t need to give anyone lifts, Audi’s iconic Quattro all-wheel-drive system and the top-spec versions featured either a turbocharged 1.8-litre 20-valve or a normally aspirated 3.2 6-cylinder. The 1.8T was very easy to extract power from and the 3.2 had a soundtrack second to none. It’s one of the few mass-produced Audis that’s starting to rise in value, and since the nameplate was recently retired, the values will start rising. After the retirement was announced, a few end-of-range models were created and were snapped up by Audi fanatics in the markets where the cars were available. A few years back the Iconic Edition was one of the last cool ones, and then there was a more recent final edition, and now there’s one more limited number final edition that comes in a roadster form, and it’s sadly a US market offering only.

So this is the Audi TT Roadster Final Edition and it’s awesome, it would be a proper farewell if the car was offered in other markets, we personally know more than 10 people who would 100% buy one, which is a 5th of the planned 50 unit production of these cars. The TT Final Edition features unique design elements that celebrate the heritage of the Audi TT and embody the model’s reputation for transcendent design - the Final Edition features an exclusive Goodwood Green pearl effect, Audi exclusive Palomino Brown stitching, Audi exclusive floor mats, Audi’s magnetic ride suspension and an extended leather package in matching the seats. The interior features a host of carbon fibre inlays to keep things upmarket and sporty. The exterior gets the S-Line package to make it rather visually appealing and to make that special paintwork pop, the car’s soft top comes in grey. The car rolls on 20-inch wheels from the TTS model. Under the hood the Roadster Final is a wee bit of a disappointment, we’d have loved to see the car fitted with that iconic 5-pot powerplant from the range-topping RS cars, instead, it features the turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder lump rated at 170 kW and 350 Nm. This is mated to a 7-speed DSG transmission and power goes to all four wheels via a Quattro all-wheel drive. While it’s the smaller powerplant, it can still hit 100 km/h in less than 6 seconds. The car will cost the equivalent of R1,300,000.

Take a look at the YouTube video that shows off the last of the last for the open-top Audi TT. The limited number car has all the right bits and bobs to make it special including the coolest leather interior possible along with brilliant paintwork. The really sad thing about the last of the last TT roadsters is the fact that it's only available in the States. Maybe some fanatics with lots of money will bring one of these into SA and receive instant Scene Point Boss status?: 2023 Audi TT Roadster Final Edition: A Tribute to Iconic Design | Automoto Network.
