AUBURN HILLS, Mich. A special edition of the world-renowned Audi TT will be offered in its final year of production. The 2006 TT Special Edition will be available in both coupe and roadster versions, and will arrive in showrooms this spring. Audi will produce 99 Special Edition coupes and 99 Special Edition roadsters to mark the 99th anniversary of the first Tourist Trophy race on the Isle of Man in 1907. The TT got its moniker from the legendary Tourist Trophy race.
Both cars come standard with a 3.2-liter, narrow angle V6 engine producing 250 hp and 236 ft.-lbs. of torque. Mated to the engine is Audis famed six-speed Direct Shift Gearbox and quattro® all-wheel drive.

The coupe is available in Misano Red, Ocean Blue, and Light Silver paint, all combined with a black roof and premium black leather interior. The roadster is available only in Quartz Gray with a black power roof and an Amber Red baseball-optic leather interior. Both models will feature an engraved badge on the glove box acknowledging these TTs as 1 of 99 Special Editions.
Standard equipment on the TT Special Edition include heated front seats, Homelink®, and a premium Bose® audio system with six-disc CD changer. The only option available is satellite radio with a choice of XM® or Sirius®. The 2006 TT Special Edition coupe starts at $43,539; roadster models start at $46,539.
