Click above for a high-res gallery of the spied Audi TT Clubsport Quattro.

Car dropped a dime on Audi HQ to get the scoop on the automaker's production plans for the recently spied TT Clubsport Quattro, and as suspected, the roof-less coupe will be making a limited production run. Audi plans to produce between 50 and 100 examples on the open-top TT, but there are no plans on offering it in the UK, the U.S. or other markets outside of the Middle East. The rationale behind the decision centers on the warm climes and lack of rain in the Middle East, along with Audi's commitment to becoming a purveyor of the finest automotive wares. It's a smart move on Audi's part, but we can't help but feel slighted by the decision. Tonneau technology has certainly evolved since its original implementation in post-WWII roadsters, so we would've hoped that such a solution would be offered to enthusiasts around the world.

      That really is a shame I am certain.. There are plenty of places around the world that share a similar climate with the Middle East..... Not a good enough reason in my opinion.

      More excuses from VAG/Audi to not sell cars in the US.
      First the new Scirocco, then the S3 refresh and 2-door A3, now the TT Speedster. Blame the dollar, blame the climate, blame anything but greed. As if your cars weren't overpriced to begin with.

      I'd say... that's quite the load of BS.

      We go months and months and MONTHS without even a rain drop here in Los Angeles. Why are we not getting it here?!

      ...feeling a bit slighted indeed
