The Audi TT takes its name from the historical successes of NSU competing at the British Isle of Man TT. The exterior design was both bold and highly distinctive with many design awards won along the way. Early Mk. I TT's are becoming increasingly difficult to find with low mileage and low ownership and there is a flourishing club support network throughout UK and Europe catering for the surging enthusiasm for this iconic model.

This privately entered TT Roadster is fitted with the desirable 'APX' 1.8 litre, turbocharged petrol engine and Quattro all-wheel drive, mated to Audi's six-speed manual DQB gearbox. Supplied new by Scotts Audi, Berkeley Square to Ms. Soyas-Ridley. She is recorded as both the first and the second registered keeper, with just her address changing in 2002. After twenty years of being registered within the first keeper’s family, ownership passed, in 2020, to the current owner by which time it had covered just 23,800 miles. Timing-belt, tensioners and water pump have all been recently replaced, plus a new clutch earlier this year. We're told that the car provides first class motoring with responsive performance and seamless transmission. Beautifully finished in a Desert Green pearl effect with black roof and complimented inside by fabulous and very rare 'Steppe Green' fine Nappa leather and carpets. Bose speakers add to the sense of top-quality appointments in the pristine cabin. Entirely unmodified, the TT retains all tools, books and owner’s wallet (nine x stamped entries in service booklet). A very rewarding future classic investment.
