It's hard to believe, but the Mk1 Audi TT is now 20yrs old! Shown as a concept coupe in 1995 the Mk1 Audi TT (Type 8N) went into production in 1998 and with its exceptional styling the car remained remarkably unchanged during its 8 years of production. The Coupe, a 2+2 was joined in '99 by the two-seater Roadster, with the majority of cars sharing the transversely mounted 1.8 litre engine found throughout the VAG group, with this engine being available in two states of tune, the 180bhp and 225bhp with Audi's trademark 'Quattro' system the standard drivetrain set up on all 225bhp models.
In 2003 the model line was joined by a 3.2 litre V6 engine. Now with 250PS and improved torque the 3.2 V6 Audi TT could now not only offer the performance of a Porsche but with a sound track to match too! With more aggressive styling, deeper vented front spoiler, distinctive rear exhaust outlet, enlarged rear spoiler, a choice of 18" alloys (RS4's, BBS split rims or 7 spoke Ronal alloy wheels) and with bigger front discs the V6 was also the first RHD production car to be offered with a Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) as well as a 6 speed manual.
Delivered new in December 2004 this stunning Mk1 Audi TT is an absolute delight and comes with the following specification:
- Glacier Blue Metallic (paint code LZ7K).
- Sea Blue full leather interior.
- 3.2 litre V6 engine.
- 6 speed manual gearbox.
- 18" Ronal alloys - fitted with matched Continental Sport Contact tyres minimum 5mm.
- Bose Sound System.
- 6 disc multi-changer.
- Aluminium double can holders.
- Audi over-mats.
Amazingly this car stunning V6, manual TT shows only 45k miles, less than 3500 miles per year and as such she is in fantastic condition, the Glacier Blue paint is virtually 'as new' and has a wonderful lustre (please follow the video link - click here). The 18" Ronals have recently been refinished in graphite and are free from any damage and with the deeper front spoiler, extended rear spoiler, honeycomb rear diffuser this V6 TT looks simply stunning. The interior is in fantastic condition too, the Sea Blue leather makes the cockpit feel 'airy' and again with such low mileage the interior still looks and smells like that of a new car. The car is fitted with a set of original Audi TT over mats, she has the desirable centre console can holders fitted, the air-con is ice cold and for those who love their music, the Bose sound system really is a step up from the standard Audi system.
At the heart of every V6 TT is the glorious 3.2 litre engine and this one is just perfect. The V6 engine fires instantly, the engine has a lovely deep tone and when accelerating hard this is enhanced further with the throttle actuated exhaust butterfly opening. With such low mileage this car remains wonderfully taught, the clutch is light, the gearbox is supers smooth and being the 6 speed manual this TT is far rarer than any comparable example fitted with the DSG. It its rumoured that Audi only built circa 900 examples fitted with the 6 speed manual and so to find a low mileage example is a real joy.
Showing just 45k miles this car comes with a comprehensive service history (service information - PDI, 17063 miles, 23804 miles, 35348 miles, 38771 miles, 41145 miles, 42707 miles and 43981 miles), with receipts for work done and MOT's all the way back to 2009. Services are a mixture of Audi main dealer and Audi independent specialist and as such import tasks such as Hadlex / brake fluid servicing have all taken place within service guidelines. Within the fabulous history file we're also aware the dash pod has been serviced by BBA Reman, the car is also fitted with Bluetooth / Streaming device, she comes with her full book pack, 2 keys, original First Aid kit, boot mounted Warning Triangle, clear Hpi and is sold with 12months MOT.
With a great level of specification, her rare colour combination and with a superlative service record, this V6 TT 6 speed manual is without doubt one of the finest examples we've seen, a true car collectors example and one assured of its classic status.

I first met Mark & Carl back on 21st Jan this year ('19) when I went to view a Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Sport, a car I had wanted from back when I was a spotty faced 17 year old. This was a real bucket list moment, buying the car of your dreams that you now have the means to make reality.
On meeting the guys from Absolute Classic Cars I had a really good feeling. When I got there the car was on the ramp ready to be poked and probed. Mark told me a little bit about the car, lifted it on the ramp and let me get on with it, just the way I like to look at cars. Any questions I had he was there with the answer but what I really liked was how he and Carl interacted. The honesty was a real change for me from when normally looking at a car. There were a couple of things I picked out and instead of the usual "that's nothing to worry about", I got "we'll get that done before the car goes out", no excuses just simple honest answers and a promise to fix it.
Anyway long story short, I bought the car and had a list of things I wanted done on the car which were all agreed to be done, in the negotiated price, prior to delivery. Every single thing on that list was done to a superb standard, to be honest it exceeded my expectations and more. Today when the car arrived I could not stop grinning from ear to ear. It was a really emotional moment, a dream fulfilled!
In the last 40 years I have never bought the first car I looked at, however this time I made an exception as I was so impressed with both the car and the people. We are so used to getting rubbish service and substandard misdescribed cars from the motor trade and I found that I was caught a little offguard here which took me a while to get to grips with .... but all in a very nice way.
What makes Absolute Classic Cars different is they care, are honest, knowledgeable and nothing is a problem, big or small. They want you to have the car you want to buy, not the car they necessarily have for sale. I don't think I've ever met two people in the motor trade less interested in pressurising you into buying, they'd rather not sell you the car if it's not 100% the car you want to buy.
From that first meeting to delivery today it has been a fantastic experience. This whole process has been an absolute pleasure, not the normal chore car buying turns into, I would and will be recommending Absolute Classic Cars to anyone that wants a classic car.
