2015 Audi TT Nuvolari Limited Edition pays homage to a legend

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 17, 2014

Tazio Giorgio Nuvolari is a well-known Italian motorcycle racer and racecar driver, the one that Ferdinand Porsche called him “the greatest driver of the past, the present and the future”. Even after his death in 1953, the Italian driver is still remembered thanks to the Gran Premio Nuvolari, a well-known race for historic cars where Audi has been a sponsor for 17 years.

At this year’s event which starts tomorrow, the German manufacturer will also debut the Audi TT Nuvolari, a limited edition that pays homage to Tazio Giorgio Nuvolari. Limited to just 100 units, the TT Nuvolari Edition will be offered in a Daytona Grey exterior colour, 19-inch 5-spoke aluminum wheels and a ‘Nuvolari’ lettering above the side sills.

Open the door and you will see the ‘Nuvolari’ lettering on the door sills, a flat-bottomed steering wheel wrapped in leather, leather-wrapped sport seats, special floor mats and a numbered plaque located next to the start button that underlines the limited edition of the vehicle.

Under the hood, there is a 2.0-liter TDI engine that produces 184 hp and 380 Nm of torque, bolted to a six-speed manual transmission. According to Audi, this model accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.1 seconds while top speed is 241 km/h or 150 mph.

Fuel consumption is 4.2 l/100 km, while CO2 emissions are 110 g/km. In Italy, the 2015 Audi TT Nuvolari will cost 51,900 euros and will hit the dealerships in November.
