Super chic and ready for top-down summer fun!
This twin seater Roadster is the perfect combination of sports car enjoyment but with no-compromise Audi build quality. The original and factory optional Black Leather upholstery, (Code JN), is beautifully clean and wear free with the supportive bolsters firm and undamaged. The quality carpets are spotless having been protected from new by genuine Audi floor mats of which the driver’s side mat is slightly worn. All aluminium elements trim pieces, controls and functions are pristine and operate perfectly including the heated seats and ice-cold electronic climate control. The Driver Information System (DIS) and other LCD displays are perfectly clear with all pixels intact, quite rare for the Mk1 TT. The factory upgrade Audi Concert sound system with optional CD autochanger and BOSE sound system offers deep, clear and crisp audio pleasure. A very clean and unspoilt interior.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 1.8T engine with standard exhaust-gas turbocharger develops a punchy 180bhp to achieve a top speed of 137mph and 0-62mph in 8.2 seconds. Fastidious documented servicing has ensured optimum performance and an exhilarating yet stable drive through the legendary Quattro permanent four-wheel drive system. The engine bay is spotlessly clean and displays factory plates, stickers and labels. The direct, short-throw 6-speed gearbox feels very sporty and offers excellent 6th gear cruising capabilities.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original 180 spec 18in alloy wheels in bright silver finish are in excellent order and the original brushed aluminium centre caps are present with only light aging visible. Matching AVON 225/40 ZR18 tyres have masses of tread remaining. The original space saver spare wheel is housed below the spotless carpeted boot floor complete with original build label, and the full Audi toolkit remains in the moulded polystyrene holder. Advanced Anti-Lock System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) features discs to all four wheels to offer powerful, assured and safe braking power.
Supplied new on 16th April 2003 by Espom Audi, this incredible example has enjoyed enthusiast ownership and covered just 36,049 from new. The full comprehensive history file includes the immaculately presented document wallet with a fully stamped service booklet containing nine stamped entries and supporting invoices from Audi main dealers and independent specialists. An Audi specialists service, timing belt and water pump change has been carried out with supporting invoice in March 2022 at 35,795 miles.

All handbooks, guides and dealership literature have been kept along with two Audi flick keys protected by rubber covers.
The previous owner purchased the car in 2018 but not before researching carefully to ensure he found the right car. His fastidious approach to securing the best TT he could led him to join TTOC, the TT Owners Club, and even buying specialist magazines with buying guides. Completing the history file is a full set of Audi TT range brochures with options listings. Look no further for an unspoilt, preserved and fastidiously maintained Audi TT Roadster.
