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 quarter-light 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 platform / drive-trains shared with others in the VAG group, meaning the car featured a front-mounted, transversely orientated engine (1.8 litre capacity) with either front-wheel drive or Audis 'Quattro' four-wheel drive system.
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 to Bedford Audi, in March 2005 this stunning Mk1 Audi TT 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 6mm.
- Factory Satellite Navigation
- Audi Concert - Single disc.
- Audi over-mats.
With only 39100 miles, this sensational Glacier Blue 3.2 V6 manual Audi TT is simply the best low mileage example we've found, the Glacier Blue paint is virtually 'as new', not a mark to be found and would look wonderful gracing any dealership, museum or prized in any collection. We've had the 18" Ronals fully stripped, powder-coated in the correct Audi silver and fitted with new centre caps and walking around the with her 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 feels like that of a new car. The car comes with all the usual TT features, tilt/rake adjustable steering column, heated seats, Driver Information System (DIS), Audi Concert stereo and is also fitted with the rarely seen Audi Sat Nav 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 believed that Audi only built circa 900 examples fitted with the 6 speed manual and so to find such a low mileage example is a real privilege.
Showing just 39k miles this car comes with a comprehensive service history (service information - PDI, 4089 miles, 7144 miles, 8692 miles, 9470 miles, 11988 miles, 14882 miles, 20497 miles, 27407 miles, 30908 miles, 33122 miles.

Within the fabulous history file, 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.
Looking as close to 'factory fresh' as we think you'll ever see, this super low mileage TT ticks all the boxes for the Audi aficionados, rare specification, fantastic service history, zero modifications and being the range topping V6 manual she will only continue to appreciate when cherished by her new keeper.

"I write these words with a large childish smile still beaming across my face after driving through the Kent countryside, roof down, summers warmth on my face as ‘il Polita’ my beautiful '82 Fiat Spider 2000. This is now June but the story starts in 2018 February at the London Classic Car Show
Glass of fizz in hand with Paul; very good friend of mine. Gazing at auto-erotica, he spots the 82’ Fiat spider 2000 on the stand of ‘Absolute Classic Cars’, with the team greeting us too look closer. A truly stunning example and honestly priced. The conversation flitters between us, the cars of the show, and the possible purhcase of the Spider!
Days later, I call to make a further enquiry to purchase the Fiat Spider. Excitement in my voice is then inadvertently quelled as I find out that the early bird has truly got the worm. Paul has got in before me and struck the deal! All's fair in love afterall. . .
After carrying out a detailed service and additional works the call comes to collect the Spider and on a damp cold March morning we travel up to Lincoln, where we're kindly picked up at the station. Moments later, after a warming coffee, everybody’s happy! The sale's completed and Paul’s in the 'new owners' hot seat of the Spider raring to go. Myself? Navigators seat, perhaps with the slightest of sighs. 150 miles later, we’re home but the drive South has encouraged me to make the call for Absolute Classic Cars to commence the search for another model. This time, most definitely with my name on it!
Over the next month myself and the ACC team discuss cars in the UK, Germany and the Netherlands, with the Mark and Carl casting their ever professional ‘laser pin point’ eye over several models. Each time highlighting why that may not be the example for me. Rest assured these guys know their onions and you’re in very safe hands; candid and sincere.
Just when I was beginning to feel the summer would pass without a ‘Spider’ for my own Italian passions, I get a phone call from my friend Paul. Whether it was a hint of guilt or just that he had run out of space for his car collection? .....“Would you like to buy the Spider from me”....I think they were his words, as I interrupted with a ‘yes definitely’ before the sentence was cast from his lips!
I inform ACC to call off the search, the Spider has fund its true home! – ‘Perhaps it was just meant to be‘ he wryly says.
From that champagne fuelled car show, meeting Carl and Mark, the roundabout route of having my perfect car in the garage & now chasing summer horizons. I can honestly say it’s been a pleasure both meeting and finally getting ‘the car’ through the Absolute Classic Cars.
As they say in Italy – ‘Le Dolce Vita’ "
