    Only 50 Heritage Edition Audi TT RS models will be made which makes the nameplate’s swan song in the US market a highly collectible piece. These vehicles feature five different color combinations, listed below in the five-cylinder firing order (1-2-4-5-3), and are limited to only 10 units of each.

    1. Alpine White with Ocean Blue leather and Diamond Silver stitch.

    4. Stone Gray metallic with Crimson Red leather and Jet Gray stitch.

    Inside, the limited-edition TT RS models feature distinctive “Heritage Edition” etching followed by the firing order of the five-cylinder engine, underlined by a “quattro” script in the rear quarter glass on the right side of each car.
