Audi is celebrating the half-a-million mark in the production of the TT with the unveiling of a special edition TTS . Called the TTS Competition, Audi will limit the new special edition to only 500 units and it will put the model into production in October. In Europe, the new TTS Competition will add only €1,900 ($2,500) over the base TTS, which is priced from €46,700 ($62,000).
The first-generation Audi TT was unveiled in 1998 in the coupe version and one year later the roadster version debuted. The first TT remained in production until 2006 and one year later, Audi released the second generation. The first TTS version was unveiled at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show as the first S model in the TT range, then the TT-RS arrived a year later at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show.
Since its initial launch in 1998, Audi has sold a total of 500,000 TT models, which is proof that the model is a force to be reckoned with in the compact sports car market.
