When the TT was first shown as a concept car at the 1995 Frankfurt Motor Show, many believed that Audi would never actually build such a vehicle. An award-winning interior design combined with a futuristic exterior, it took advantage of a previously unused laser beam welding adaptation which enabled seamless design features on the first-generation car. The name TT has been attributed to the phrase ‘Technology & Tradition’ and it was technology that really set the Mk. I TT apart specifically with the launch in 2003 of a dual clutch six-speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG), with the United Kingdom TT variants becoming the world's first user of a dual clutch transmission configured for a right hand drive vehicle. The 3.2 V6 model also boasted Quattro four wheel drive system and dual tailpipe exhausts; the larger engine TT also boasted 247bhp and a 0-60 of 6.2 seconds; quicker than the manual car due to the swift DSG gear changes.
Originally registered on 10th May 2005, this 3.2 litre Audi has had four previous keepers. The current vendor has owned her since June 2014 and has maintained the car well; the most recent service was carried out on 17th May 2018 at 75,195 miles. Presenting in very good order throughout, this TT Quattro is finished silver with black leather interior. We are advised OV05 OCH drives well with brisk performance and being a four wheel drive example, road holding is excellent. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 25th May 2019 (no advisories) together with the original service books and a collection of invoices, this 3.2 litre V6 Audi is offered for sale without reserve and could well prove to be a shrewd investment.
