Audi found out that its UK clients love the dark finishes on its cars, so decided to extend the Black Edition version, introduced first on the Q3. Now, the Black edition version can also be ordered with the latest A3 and S3, TT and TT Roadster, S6 and S7 Sportback models. Available from this month, these new variants have many black accents.
In the A3 three-door, five-door Sportback and Saloon ranges Black Edition specification is offered as a step up from the top S line trim. It brings special 18-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels with a matt titanium finish and darkened privacy glass extending from the B pillar rearwards, plus a distinctive black finish for the Single Frame grille surround, air inlets, window cappings and door mirrors.
Inside, the ambiance is also enriched by a 10-speaker Audi Sound System with 180 watts of music power. Internally all three variants also benefit from a Bang & Olufsen audio system in place of the Audi Sound System normally included as part of the S3 specification.

The Black Edition formula is applied in a similar concentration for TT and TTS Coupe and Roadster models, but in these versions 19-inch five-spoke Blade design alloy wheels and Bang & Olufsen audio form part of the package, as does an additional powered wind deflector for the Roadster.
The new Audi S6 Saloon and Avant and S7 Sportback Black Edition models combine these with 20-inch five twin spoke alloy wheels, while S7 Sportback Black Edition models move up to a 21-inch five-arm Rotor design. Inside, in addition to piano black inlays, both models gain a Bose sound system and a flat-bottomed multi-function steering wheel.
