The only Audi TT model built by Audi AG high-performance specialist subsidiary Quattro GmbH in Germany, the Quattro TT Sport or TT Club Sport as it was known in Europe was built in very limited numbers. Just 800 UK cars were produced, less than the 1000 cars originally intended, and this example is finished in Audi Phantom Black Pearl effect, (Code LZ9Y). The paintwork looks stunning and this unspoilt and pampered example will please even the most ardent scrutineers. Correct black exhaust tips and wider arch spats are unique for the TT Sport and all other trim sections are intact with Audi main dealer number plates fitted. The original front screen has some minor marks. All badges are in as new condition to proudly shout about how special this model is. An outstanding example of this much revered and coveted TT Coupe.
The interior of this Audi TT remains in superb condition. The original Recaro Bucket seats with Phantom Black seat backs intended for the TT Sport remain fitted and are alternative to the less desirable comfort sport seats that were available as a no cost option chosen by some buyers. The black Alcantara/leather seats coverings (code TW) are in fantastic order with no bobbling to the Alcantara on the seats nor the steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake. All controls function and the red LCD display is perfect. Obvious weight saving measures to contribute towards to overall weight loss of 75kg is achieved by a stability bar and luggage net in place of the rear seat, and removal of the spare wheel. Inspection of the luggage area reveals an immaculate air compressor, toolkit, genuine Audi battery and wheel changing apparatus as well as the all-important factory options label. The discreet and unique Quattro Sport badge above the glove box acts as a subtle hint towards this very special TT’s capabilities.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The increased power from the 1.8 turbocharged engine rising to 240bhp is the result of a different mapping profile and offers an explosive 0-60mph time of 5.7 seconds and limited top speed of 155mph. Further weight saving and weight distribution measures were achieved by the removal of the rear counterweight and relocation of the battery to the rear of the vehicle. The engine compartment is very clean and has all stickers and plates clearly visible as well as the under-bonnet label. A numbered plaque has been fitted. The Quattro permanent four-wheel drive system mated to a precise 6-speed gearbox offers phenomenal stability and driver enjoyment.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Unique to the Quattro Sport and in superb order, the original 8J x 18 front and 8.5J x 18 rear alloys wheels are shod in matching premium Continental ContiSportContact5 tyres showing masses of tread. The braking system offers additional assured and safe braking power with the front brakes upgraded to genuine Audi RS4 discs and callipers and rear callipers painted red as another distinguishing standard feature of the Quattro Sport. Without question the most desirable production Mk1 TT driving experience.
Supplied new on 6th July 2006 by Portsmouth Audi, this beautiful example has covered just 54,731 miles from new. The history file features the stamped service booklet recording twelve entries with a separate neat history folder containing supporting invoices for servicing and maintenance. In November 2021 with zero miles covered since, a stamped entry and supporting invoice evidences a full service including the cambelt and all-important Haldex oil and filter, carried out using genuine Audi parts. Every MOT certificate carried out since the very first 2009 is in the history folder to further verify the mileage. All handbooks are contained within the smart black A5 wallet along with dealership point of sale literature and the separate Quattro Sport Supplement to the Owner’s Manual.
All Mk1 Audi TT’s have gained huge appreciation in the world of modern classic cars but none more than the pinnacle Quattro TT Sport, more so in such superb, low mileage condition as this example.
