Audi says goodbye to U.S. with 50 TT Quattro Heritage Edition units
While still available outside of the U.S., the 2022 Audi TT RS Heritage Edition signals the appropriate farewell to the remarkable high performance coupe following the 2022 model year. The TT and TTS models will continue to be available in international markets and in the U.S. market. For the 2022 model year, a limited number of just 50 highly collectible TT RS models will be available with the Heritage Edition nomenclature that blends five different exterior paints of the past that celebrate the heritage of the Audi Ur quattro.
The legendary Ur quattro was powered by the storied Audi five cylinder engine of its time with the modern version supporting the high performance Audi TT RS. The limited TT RS Heritage Edition is available in five different color combinations, listed below in the five cylinder firing order, and is limited to only 10 units of each:
Alpine White with Ocean Blue leather and Diamond Silver stitch
Helios Blue metallic Diamond Silver leather and Ocean Blue stitch
Stone Gray metallic with Crimson Red leather and Jet Gray stitch
Tizian Red metallic with Havanna Brown leather and Jet Gray stitch
Malachite Green metallic with Cognac Brown leather and Black stitch
The interior leather and contrast stitching combinations are leveraged from the current Audi exclusive portfolio of upholstery selections, and include several first time color combinations for the U.S. market. To further underline the exclusivity of the limited edition model, the TT RS Heritage Edition exhibits an understated, yet distinctive etch of "HERITAGE EDITION" script followed by the firing order of the five cylinder engine "1 2 4 5 3", underlined by a "quattro" script in the rear quarter glass on the right side of each car.
While 2022 is the last model year for the TT RS in the U.S., the model will live on in other international markets for some time. The 2022 Audi TT RS Heritage Edition and the 2022 Audi TT RS model are expected to go on sale in the U.S. toward the beginning of 2022. The limited edition model, no doubt to become a sought after model for enthusiasts, celebrates the legendary five cylinder engine for the Audi brand which will continue to be available once the all new RS 3 goes on sale next summer in the U.S. ■
