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
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".
