2022 Audi TT RS says goodbye with Quattro Heritage Edition

Only 50 in Quattro-inspired colors will be made

One of the coolest Audis around is leaving the united state after the 2022 version year: the turbocharged five-cylinder Audi TT RS. It’s not the end of the whole TT line, the good news is, as the typical TT as well as TTS will certainly continue to be offered, however the RS is going away. Almost extra uncomfortable than a total discontinuation, the TT RS will certainly still be sold globally after following year, suggesting the U.S. is singled out for this disappointment. Yet to soften the blow, Audi is making a run of 50 special 2022 TT RS Quattro Heritage Version versions special to America.

The Heritage Edition’s a lot of unique features are its shade mixes. Five options will certainly be readily available, in maintaining with the vehicle’s 5 cyndrical tubes, with exterior colors based upon ones available on the original Audi Quattro sports car. Each outside shade is paired with an one-of-a-kind interior color. You can see the mixes listed here.

Only 10 of each color mix will certainly be constructed. Each cars and truck likewise obtains a distinct mix of exterior features including 20-inch wheels, aluminum-color accents, black exhaust ideas, OLED taillights and a button from the fixed rear wing to the electrical retracting looter. Inside the guiding wheel and also shifter are covered in Alcantara, with the previous obtaining a 12 o’clock mark in the very same leather as the seats. It additionally gets RS floor mats. Performance-wise, nothing is changed except adding a 174-mph speed limiter. We question any kind of buyers will certainly grumble, though, as the basic 394 horse power and also 354 pound-feet of torque are loads of enjoyable to have fun with.

The Heritage Edition’s exclusivity includes a notable rate premium. It begins at $82,495, which is $8,250 more than the regular TT RS. But the normal one will certainly still be offered if you still intend to order among the sports cars before it’s too late. All 2022 models will take place sale very early following year.
