It’s official. The time has come for the U.S. market to say goodbye to much beloved and all-around weird little guy, the Audi TT. We love a weird little guy, don’t we folks? The 2023 Audi TT Roadster Final Edition is the last one we’ll get here, and it’s only available in this gorgeous Goodwood Green Pearl with a grey top and Palomino Brown leather interior. This color combination is a throwback to the first generation Audi TT, wrapped around a throwback to the original’s iconic “baseball stitch seats.” It might not have been a colorway I’d have specified when ordering a TT, but I’ll be damned if it doesn’t work incredibly well.
In addition to a gorgeous color combo, the TT Roadster Final Edition gets its 20 x 9 wheels from the TTS, as well as its standard magnetic ride suspension, and S-line exterior trim. Thankfully Audi chose to ditch the S-Line badges to give the little convertible a bit more class to match its color. Inside you are treated to a full interior of extended leather, plush leather-trimmed floor mats, and carbon fiber trim for just the right level of sporty and comfy.
The only available drivetrain is from the base model TT, which means you get 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four cylinder. The 7-speed S Tronic dual clutch (yeah, that’s a DSG) routes power to the quattro all-wheel drive system. Stomp the loud pedal and you’re running from 0-60 in 5.5 seconds.
Only 50 units of the Roadster Final Edition will be built, and it’s only for U.S. buyers. This 50-car run will probably sell out fairly quickly, but it’ll account for a significant portion of TT sales this year. And that’s a shame, because the TT is a legitimately good little car.
This thing doesn’t come cheap, though. It’ll cost you $67,800 plus a $1095 destination charge to get your hands on this green beauty. Is it worth Porsche Boxster money to get an Audi in a cool color? I guess it depends on your priorities.
