20 Years of Audi TT – A Reason to Celebrate
Events have to be celebrated as they come along. For this reason, Audi has released an exclusive TT anniversary edition. An appropriate gift for the twentieth anniversary, so to speak, to commemorate the market launch of the first generation of the TT in 1998. To mark the anniversary, the “Audi TT 20 Years edition” will roll off the production line at the end of the year and comes, as per customer request, as a coupé or roadster. This model has been limited to 999 cars and incorporates a number of details from the original 1995 roadster concept. What stands out, for instance, is the exclusive Arrow gray paint finish with pearl effect – alternatively, also available in Nano gray metallic. Above the side sills, the partially matt-finished Audi rings on this anniversary edition are a particularly exclusive feature. Matrix OLED rear lights, glossy metallic gray 19-inch wheels, black brake calipers and special stainless-steel exhaust pipes provide the finishing touches to the exterior.
The Cockpit of the New TT
Now to the interior: drivers of the first Audi TT will quickly feel at home, as a very popular feature immediately jumps out at you when you open the door. The so-called baseball stitching of the seats or, as it is called these days, the Panuka contrast stitching. This embellishes the moccasin-brown Nappa leather, also a permanent feature in the TT’s history. A badge with the actual number of the limited edition as well as a “TT 20 Year edition” badge on the steering wheel and gearshift knob remind the driver what an exceptional car he is sitting in – just in case he should have forgotten. “In many people’s view, the design of the Audi TT at its premiere 20 years ago was no less than a revolution, a milestone of modern car design. It has had a lasting effect on this make of car of ours. For us, the TT has been one of the central icons for more than three generations”, says Audi designer Dany Garand and adds: “The anniversary model is our gift to the large fan community – a homage to 20 years of the Audi TT and the breathtaking concepts from 1995.”
...and just for fun, here's what else happened in 1998:
Britney Spears stole our hearts
Microsoft became the biggest company in the world
We watched Godzilla, Saving Private Ryan and Armageddon at the cinema
We all listened to All Saints
Furby was our pet
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets was released
...and it all seems like yesterday.
