Yep, you did read that subheading correctly—this is a €114,000 (P6.53 million) Audi TT. Gosh. Of course, it isn’t just any TT—this is the TT RS 40 Years of Quattro. In fact, to give it its proper name, it’s the TT RS 40 Jahre Quattro, because this thing will only be available in Germany.
Just 40 examples will be produced, too, each one signifying a year since the original Quattro was first unveiled at the 1980 Geneva International Motor Show.
Mechanically, the special edition seems to be just a fully optioned TT RS. That means the wonderful 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbo engine makes no more power, but there’s still 395hp and 479Nm of torque. There’s also all-wheel drive (or else it wouldn’t be a very fitting tribute) with torque vectoring tech that can brake an inside wheel during cornering.
There’s still the same seven-speed S tronic paddle-shift gearbox and the 3.7sec 0-100kph time, too, and the limiter is removed for a top speed of 280kph.
What’s new, then? Well, those fantastic white 20-inch wheels and the retro decals hark back to Walter Röhrl’s 1987 Pikes Peak-winning Quattro S1, and there’s a slightly more aggressive aero kit as well as a new hood vent.
On the inside, buyers can replace the rear seats with a carbon-fiber strut brace that saves 16kg and improves torsional rigidity. There’s plenty of alcantara too, plus the all-important special-edition embroidery and numbered badging. Classy.
What do we think?
