Audi Says Goodbye to Manual A4 with Ultra Limited Ultrasport Package

Spread the love

We were saddened to learn that Audi will no longer be offering the A4 (nor the A5) in manual, but the brand has at least decided on a fitting farewell for it.

The last 40 A4 manuals in America will all be identical and will be known as the A4 Ultra sport. Offered exclusively in Quantum Gray, a color otherwise only available on the S4/S5/SQ5, the A4 Ultra sport will bridge the gap between the A4 and the S4, while still offering three pedals.

The package is a $6,800 option that gets you everything included in the Premium Plus (advanced key, SiriusXM, driver memory, parking sensors, Bang & Olufsen 3D sound, LED headlights, power folding mirrors) as well as stainless steel pedal caps, a flat bottom steering wheel, dynamic steering, sport adaptive damping suspension, sport seats, Audi Sport RS carbon inlays, and more.

From the outside, you’ll be able to tell it apart thanks to carbon mirror caps, rear lip spoiler, the Titanium black exterior package, and model and engine designation badge deletes.

All 40 are already believed to be at a port in the US, so if you want one, you better call your dealer today (like, right now!) and ask them to hold it, because there aren’t many to go around.

The name is a callback to the B6 A4 fo the early 2000s. The package was also introduced in North America, and included aluminum interior trim and door sills, an S line steering wheel, front and rear spoilers, side skirts, and the RS4’s wheels.

the Audi Club North America also reports that Scott Keogh, president of Audi North America, explained at one of their events that the A4 had to go because they had promised Ingolstadt that it would make up around 10% of sales, when it actually only made up 2-3% of sales.
