100,000th Audi TT Coupé produced
Ingolstadt - Assembly of the first Audi TT Coupé began at the Györ plant in Hungary in April 1998. Today the 100,000th of this successful sports car rolled off the assembly line. Over 13,000 TT Coupé models were assembled in Györ in the first year of production. The third quarter of 1999 saw the addition of the Roadster, of which over 45,000 units have now already been produced in Hungary.
The Ingolstadt and Györ plants cooperate closely on the production of both models. The TT bodies are manufactured and painted at Ingolstadt. The painted body shells are then transported by rail to Györ overnight where final assembly takes place. Audi has invested DM 70 million in assembly facilities for its sports car at the Hungarian plant. A workforce of around 1100 is employed in TT production at Györ.
The TT Coupé will be marketed worldwide from September with the exclusive "S line" sports package by quattro GmbH - albeit only for a limited period, probably until the end of the year. This high-quality package will only be offered for the TT Coupé 1.8 T with 165 kW (225 bhp) engine. It includes sports suspension, 18-inch cast alloy wheels, leather seats, the choice between two new exterior colours, aluminium gear-lever knob and headlight trims in the colour Titanium. TT Coupé models fitted with this equipment package will also bear the emblem "S line".
