Find of the Day: 2021 Audi exclusive Velvet Purple Pearl TT RS
words: Bill, photos: Adam Cooney
Normally, I don’t post brand new or very new cars as a Find of the Day unless it’s unique or in an eye-catching color; I think Velvet Purple classifies as an eye-catching color. The seller claims that it is a 1 of 1 in the US. Here’s the ad:

I’m toying around with selling my car. I’m the only owner, and special ordered it in October of 2020. Took possession of it in March 2021. I trailered it from the dealer straight to the detail shop where it had a 3 stage paint correction before the PPF & ceramic coating were applied. When I say full body PPF I mean even the under parts on the rockers and rear bumper – just for extra protection.
The car looks nicer than new. It’s been babied by me. Properly hand washed. Garage kept. Has never seen snow, salt, or even rain – because I’m a neurotic maniac, hah!
You can’t buy this setup even if you wanted to new. 2022 stopped doing OLED tails. Plus markups of $10k over MSRP if you can even get an allocation for one.
I don’t need to sell it, but I’m building a new house and putting the money towards that wouldn’t be a bad idea. I also never drive it – just too busy with work and other things.
Serious buyers only. I’ll ship anywhere at buyers expense. I’m located just outside of Albany, NY. It’s still garaged and hasn’t been taken out yet so mileage will stay the same for at least another week or so.
The latest (and possibly last) iteration of the TT RS is a wonderful car. Combine it with Velvet Purple and you have a winning combination. It is listed on the Facebook 8Y/8V/8S Audi S3/RS3/TTS/TTRS page. Listed for $83,500, you can find it HERE.
