Following the reveal of the limited-edition R8 Coupé V10 GT RWD, Audi has whipped the wraps off another limited-run model, celebrating innovative design and dynamics with the TT RS Coupé iconic edition. 

TT RS iconic

Limited to only 100 units across Europe, the TT RS iconic edition is “exclusive” and “performance-focused”. The special-edition variant celebrates the TT’s success story spanning almost a quarter of a century. According to the German brand, “[The] TT RS Coupé iconic edition stands out with its legendary five-cylinder performance combined with sporty design elements, both in the exterior and interior.”

“The name of the Audi TT RS Coupé iconic edition says it all,” said Sebastian Grams, managing director of Audi Sport GmbH. “The edition model is reminiscent of the iconic TT design language, which, at the same time, stands for courage and elegance in uncompromising form. Thanks to the exclusive exterior and interior highlights, the much-loved performance of our ultimate sports coupé, with its multiple award-winning five-cylinder engine, is not only palpable but also visible to fans.”

The most notable addition to the exterior is an aero kit, which, Audi says, enhances the two-seater sports car’s sporty character. Developed in a wind tunnel, the motorsport-inspired ‘Aerokit’’s front apron features side flics, a front splitter and blades in the side front air intakes. 

At the rear, a fixed carbon-fibre wing, replete with side winglets, “ensures a sporty finish … and supports both performance and efficiency”. There are vertical design elements on both sides above the RS-specific diffuser. The two “striking”, oval-shaped exhaust tailpipes remain the RS signature at the rear end.

Inside, a dark colour scheme characterises the cabin. The RS sports seats are two-tone with Nappa side panels in jet grey, centre panels in black Alcantara, and honeycomb stitching in calendula yellow. Exclusive “iconic edition” embroidery is embedded in the black Alcantara at shoulder height.  

As a reminder, the TT RS is equipped with the Ingolstadt-based automaker’s sonorous 2.5-litre turbocharged five-pot (also found in the recently-launched-in-SA RS3 siblings), producing 294 kW and 480 Nm of torque. Power is directed to all four corners via a seven-speed S tronic transmission.
