Titanium Package for American Audi A4, S4, A5 and S5 Revealed

“Black Optics” has been a regular option box on Audi’s German order book for years. The idea is simple: rid the car of most any chrome be it grille surround, window treatment or other. During the B7 era Audi of America experimented with the look, packaging it with unique wheels, S-line body treatment and specific colors to create the successful A4 Titanium Package. The model worked and the cars achieved a cult-like following amongst enthusiasts. That success was enough to garner a return and even an expansion for the B8-generation.

For the 2011 model year, Audi of America will relaunch the Titanium Package and equip it to no less than the A4 sedan, A4 Avant, S4 sedan, A5 coupe and S5 coupe. Essentially, the kit will be available on everything but the cabriolets with their not very titanium windshield frame brightwork.

Pricing for the packages has yet to be announced but sources at Audi of America have shared enough intel on the option package to allow for a thorough summary of each model and enable Fourtitude to create configurator-based mockups likely exact in detail to what will be offered to consumers at an Audi dealership near you.

Details of the Titanium Package have been distributed to dealerships in their 2011 order guides and production has already begun. Deliveries of Titanium Package sedans are expected to begin later this summer as MY2011 cars begin to arrive. S5 and A5 production was delayed with an expected start of production during week 36, so two-door versions will be slightly delayed.

A4 Sedan Titanium Package

In an effort to keep pricing competitive, the A4 Titanium Package will be fitted on non S-line versions of the A4. Unfortunately this means the S-line’s cool perforated alcantara seating won’t be available but that doesn’t mean the “Ti Pack” won’t be sporty. Sport suspension and seats will be standard.

S4 Sedan Titanium Package

This will be the first time Audi has offered a Titanium package on an S-car and we can’t think of a better generation S4 on which to launch it. Most of the pieces involved have been available via a very obscure “Black Optics” package available through Audi Exclusive to American consumers also opting for custom paint but the package will go mainstream with the Titanium Package. We’ve seen the grille first hand on our Audi Exclusive 4 Season S4 and it is entirely black, from a gloss black chrome surround to matte black grille and vertical struts. Only the aluminum mirrors of the S-car remain.
