Audi TT gets Amplified Black option

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 13, 2013

The Audi TT range will be available with the new Amplified Black specification, which is currently offered as an optional extra for all TT Coupé and Roadster Black Edition models. The new option upgrade puts the price £700 higher than the cost of the equivalent Black Edition model.

The TT Black Edition already boasts a dark and sporty look due to the choice of four striking paint finishes (which include the bold Samoa Orange).

But it becomes more purposeful because of the Amplified Black package, which includes the black-finished front lip spoiler, black door mirror housings, black TT RS-style fixed rear spoiler and black 19-inch ‘Rotor’ design alloy wheels. The theme continues at the rear with black diffuser insert and black exhaust tailpipes.

The option price includes the choice among four metallic or pearl effect colours: Glacier White, Misano Red, Daytona Grey or Samoa Orange. If this last colour is picked, even its interior inlays have this stunning paint. The inlays are in matt brushed aluminium for the other options. The Black Edition specification based on the top S line trim level is already comprehensive.

It features black trimming for the radiator grille surround and number plate holder, tinted rear privacy glass, xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights, black leather and Alcantara upholstery, a premium BOSE surround sound system, iPod and mobile phone connection and rear acoustic parking.

The two engines come with this unique new appearance. The 2.0-litre TFSI petrol with 211PS is linked to either front-wheel-drive or quattro all-wheel-drive while the 2.0-litre TDI with 170PS is mated to just the quattro drive.

The Black Edition models that include the £700 Amplified Black option package have a starting OTR price of £31,365 for the 2.0 TFSI Coupé with six-speed manual gearbox. This increases to £36,360 for the 2.0 TFSI quattro Roadster with six-speed S tronic transmission.

The big noise in the Audi TT range this week is the new Amplified Black specification, which is now available as an optional extra for all TT Coupé and Roadster Black Edition models. Combining an even more sporting look with a choice of four striking paint finishes, including the unashamedly bold Samoa Orange, the new option upgrade adds £700 to the price of the equivalent Black Edition model.

The already dark and brooding look of the TT Black Edition is made even more purposeful by the Amplified Black package with its black-finished front lip spoiler, black door mirror housings, black TT RS-style fixed rear spoiler and black 19-inch ‘Rotor’ design alloy wheels. At the rear, a black diffuser insert and black exhaust tailpipes continue the theme.

The four metallic or pearl effect colours Glacier White, Misano Red, Daytona Grey or Samoa Orange are included in the option price, and if the latter is chosen the interior inlays are also finished in this most striking of TT paint options. In all other cases, inlays are in matt brushed aluminium.

Black Edition specification, which is based on the top S line trim level, is already exhaustive. It includes black trimming for the radiator grille surround and number plate holder, tinted rear privacy glass, xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights, black leather and Alcantara upholstery, a premium BOSE surround sound system, iPod and mobile phone connection and rear acoustic parking.

Two engines are available in conjunction with this distinctive new look – the 2.0-litre TFSI petrol with 211PS linked to either front-wheel-drive or quattro all-wheel-drive and the 2.0-litre TDI with 170PS mated to quattro drive only. OTR prices for Black Edition models including the £700 Amplified Black option package start at £31,365 for the 2.0 TFSI Coupé with six-speed manual gearbox and rise to £36,360 for the 2.0 TFSI quattro Roadster with six-speed S tronic transmission.
