In a poignant moment for automotive enthusiasts, the German luxury carmaker Audi has officially concluded the production of its iconic TT sports coupe, with the last unit completing its journey down the assembly line at the plant in Hungary. Having made its debut in 1998, the Audi TT leaves behind a legacy, with over 6,62,762 units sold globally over its 25-year lifespan.
The final model to grace the production line was the Audi TTS, elegantly finished in Chronos Gray Metallic paint with dark chrome matte accents. Beneath the surface, this concluding model boasts a 2.0-litre TFSI, four-cylinder gasoline engine, generating an impressive 315bhp and 400Nm of torque. Power is efficiently transmitted to all four wheels through a seven-speed DSG gearbox, featuring Audi’s renowned Quattro all-wheel-drive system.
The Audi TT has been celebrated for its distinctive design, driving dynamics, and a loyal fan base that spans the globe. As the last unit completes its production, it signifies the end of an era for the TT series, leaving enthusiasts with memories of a remarkable journey in the realm of sports coupes.
In addition to bidding farewell to the Audi TT, Audi India has announced a forthcoming price hike of up to two percent across its entire portfolio. This adjustment, effective from January 1, 2024, is attributed to the escalating input and operational costs faced by the automaker.
