Audi TT gets two sporty appearance packages for the global range
Audi released a brand new variant from the TTS named Competition Plus that plays with materials and colors to put a greater focus on style. Both coupe and convertible models qualify to get the appearance package.
Offered in Chronos Gray, Glacier White, Tango Red, and Turbo Blue, the Competition Plus gains a selection of subtle design details that help it stay ahead of the conventional TTS. Its 20-inch wheels are painted black, its brake calipers are red, and many of its exterior trim pieces are coated in black. Audi’s logo appears on both sides, at the front of the rear wheels.
Inside, the seats are upholstered in black leather upholstery with Express Red or Ara Blue contrast stitching. Several other styling accents (including carbon fibre around the center console) are part of the package.
Power develops from a turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 320 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. It spins all four wheels and uses a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Enthusiasts who select the coupe can reach 62 mph from a stay in 4.5 seconds, as the convertible posts a 4.8-second time.
On sale now in select markets, the Audi TTS Competition Plus has a base price of 61,000 euros (about $72,400) in its home country of Germany, though that figure features a 19% sales tax. Although it initially sounded like we’d obtain the package in the United States, Audi later confirmed it will not be in love with our shores.
Audi detailed another appearance package named Bronze Selection (shown above) which is on the TT and the TTS throughout the second quarter of 2021. Developed by Audi Sport, the firm’s in-house performance division, it leaves the powertrain untouched however it adds bronze- and copper-colored trim pieces inside and outside.
