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 finished in original Phantom Black (code LZ9Y) is simply exceptional. The low mileage and enthusiast owner credentials are obvious and even the strictest perfection seeker will struggle to fault the finish. Correct black exhaust tips and wider arch spats are unique for the TT Sport. An outstanding example of this much revered and coveted TT Coupe.
Having covered such few miles, the interior of this Audi TT remains in remarkable 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 standard sport seats that were available as a no cost option chosen by some buyers on comfort grounds. The black alcantara/leather seats coverings (code TW) are in fantastic order. All trims pieces, controls and functions are virtually as new with only minor bobbling to the alcantara covering on the steering wheel. 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 and heated seats. 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 unmolested, spotless and has all stickers and plates clearly visible. 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 perfect order, the original 8J x 18 front and 8.5J x 18 rear alloys wheels remain fitted and are shod in the correct 235/40 R18 Goodyear Eagle tyres with masses of tread. The braking system offers assured and safe braking power with the callipers painted red as another distinguishing feature of the Quattro Sport. Without question the most desirable production TT driving experience and this example is truly exceptional.
Supplied new on 31st May 2005 by Lancaster Audi, this incredible example has covered just 49,505 miles from new with just three enthusiast keepers. The immaculately presented history file documents full main dealer service history with a fully stamped service booklet containing nine stamped entries and supporting invoices. There are two documented cambelt and water pump changes, the most recent being in 2015 at 45,386 miles.

All handbooks are contained within the smart black A5 wallet including Audi staff business cards and point of sale literature.

Exemplary in every respect, this cossetted Audi TT Quattro Sport has wanted from nothing and will certainly impress the discerning enthusiast seeking the best.
