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.

Earlier this year (2018) I had the pleasure of doing business with Mark and Carl at Absolute Classic Cars (ACC) as they had an amazingly rare low mileage 1989 Porsche 911 SSE Coupe for sale, or as I have come to call her, 'The Mona Lisa'.
Knowing how rare this model is and seeing a few examples for sale at Porsche specialists / established classic dealers around the UK I took my time to see all the cars in market place and after visiting the ACC premises a few times, talking to them at length at how they would prepare the car, what they could do for me and getting a 'feel' for them and their business I knew Absolute Classic Cars were the right people.
In the weeks leading up to delivery I spoke with Mark on an almost daily basis; updates on the detailed Porsche specialist service they'd arranged, refurbishment of the Fuchs alloys to factory 'as new' condition, fitting new Continental tyres, refurbishment of the fan/housing, detailed wax-oil and so. When she was finally ready Mark and Carl delivered the car in person within their fully enclosed trailer and once unloaded, joining other classics in my collection they then covered her with a tailored car cover they arranged for me.
A few days after the delivery I was advised by my insurance company that due to the value of the car would need a Tracker fitted and on phoning Mark for some advise, he suggested that they might be able to help further. Less than 24hrs later they had arranged for an approved specialist to make the journey from Lincoln to my home (250 mile round trip) and I could rest easy knowing that everything was sorted.
As an classic car enthusiast, many years the senior of Mark and Carl, I have meet many dealers in my time and for the most they are just that, dealers. In approaching Mark and Carl at Absolute Classic Cars it is a real pleasure to have meet and dealt with two gents whose passion happens to be their business; their knowledge, enthusiasm, detailed professional approach sets them apart and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone considering a classic car purchase.
