Shown as a concept coupe originally at the 1995 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Mk1 Audi TT (internal designation Type 8N) went into production in 1998 and remained remarkably faithful to its initial design, with the only notable changes being the reprofiled bumpers and the addition of quarterlight windows behind the doors. Launched as a 2+2 Coupe the range was joined in 1999 with a two-seater roadster with all cars sharing their similar retro styling, quality build materials and plateform / drive-trains shared with others in the VAG group, meaning the car featured a front-mounted, transversley orientated engine (1.8 litre capacity) with either front-wheel drive or Audis 'Quattro' four-wheel drive system.
In its 8yrs of production, the model line saw a minor styling revision in 2003, the range of engines (originally rated at 180bhp and 225bhp) being joined by a 3.2 litre V6 engine, the addition of a DSG (Direct-Shift Gearbox) and finally in 2005 the limited production Quattro Sport, a stripped out version with circa 800 examples being built for the UK market.
Delivered new to Lister Audi, Coventry, in April 2006 this stunning Phantom Black metallic Audi TT, with full black leather interior is quite probably one of the last TT's to come off the Audi Hungary, Györ, production line. With a 1.8 litre Turbo-charged engine (190bhp - Audi revised the engine map for 2005/06) running through 5 speed manual gearbox and front-wheel drive, the TT offers a 0-60mph of 7.4 seconds and where allowed a top speed of 145mph.
The condition of the car is exemplary throughout, the paintwork looks fantastic and the original owner had the foresight to order the stunning 17" Competition forged alloys, an expensive option when new. Being a 2wd example she doesn't carry the excessive weight of the Quattro system and as such she feels much lighter on the open road and with only 24500 miles (service information - PDI, 9733 miles, 12965 miles, 15302 miles, 15755 miles, 19098 miles, 20713 miles, 22000 miles and 23457 miles) the TT drives faultlessly and returns excellent mpg. Openning the door you're meet with a 'showroom' fresh interior which shows zero wear again confirming the exceptionally low mileage.
Without doubt the Mk1 Audi TT is assured of its classic status. In stunning condition and with 1 previous keep (2 lady owners) this 190bhp Audi TT comes with 2 keys, her dealer book pack (receipts confirming the low mileage), her original First Aid Kit, boot mounted Warning Triangle and genuine Audi TT overmats and will come with 12 months MOT and is ready to grace any classic car / Audi TT meeting.

"After recently selling my Jaguar E-Type Series II Roadster I found myself spending hours searching for a suitable replacement. With so many years being the owner of this stylish ‘Cat’ the search went on day and night, often with a glass of Scotlands finest whiskey in hand! I began working through my ‘wish list’ and couldn’t believe my luck when I stumbled across the Absolute Classic Cars website. A Volvo 1800S was clearly on my radar and Marks privately owned classic was something unreal, the car looked truly stunning.
I instantly called Mark (who speaks great German) and told him I would be on the next available plane. At 2am I booked the flight, organised a rental car and shortly afterwards had boarded a flight to the UK and finally made it to Marks house with enough light left in an otherwise typical grey winters day. Mark opened his garage and rolled out his classic, still wearing its cover, my heart in overdrive and head spinning! Mark removed the cover and there in front me…..every word Mark had used far exceeded my expectations, the exterior colour complimented the shape of the car perfectly, it simply could not be surpassed, the interior was the icing on the cake and the car was in absolutely fantastic order…I needed to buy this car as much as I needed to breath!
The personal touch, the thought of the smallest details that went into restoring this car from a barn-find car to an absolute classic winner just shows the amount of expertise and knowledge about design and how things work to elevate a good car into something very special.
If you are looking for the personal touch paired with knowledge about historic cars, then Absolute Classic Cars is the only way to go."
