A very nicely presented example of the MKII facelifted TT with S-Tronic gearbox
Boasting a sensible original mileage and a full and diligent service history
Presented in powerful 3.2L V6 form with Quattro full-time four-wheel drive
Featuring some enhancing and thoughtful upgrades from standard
The Audi TT enjoyed a cosmopolitan origin story, originally tracing its history back to a styling exercise by Volkswagen’s Design Centre in California. When it went into production in 1994 it was produced in the firm’s Hungarian subsidiary. The MKII model appeared in 2006 and was now based on VW’s A5-PQ35 platform and continued to be produced in the Hungarian factory. To continue its cosmopolitan theme the TT has gone on to be popular and sought after worldwide.
This example hails from that first year of MKII production and is in well specified and popular V6, S-Tronic specification featuring the power unit from the VR6. To help make best use of the 247bhp this car has the Quattro four-wheel drive system like all V6 TTs. This car presents in a really good overall condition for its age and benefits from a full and documented service history.

The Audi TT caused quite a stir when it burst onto the scene in 1994. It was hailed as an almost Audi conceived 911, but not quite. The original MKI cars were popular, but their driving experience was a little marred by the turbo lag and peaky power delivery from their 1.8L engines. The MKII dramatically improved this situation especially in this V6 3.2L form with Quattro all wheel drive. As such, early MKII cars with sensible mileage are becoming increasingly desired and sought after.
This example is a great exemplar of the breed, too. It has been subtly upgrades with well chosen RS parts and comes in the highly accomplished S-Tronic and 3.2L V6 Quattro specification. It’s got a lovely leather clad cabin and is well equipped and specified. This car probably represents the optimum way in which to sample the delights of Audi TT ownership so bid today to get behind the wheel of this fine Audi sports coupe.

About Max Bids
The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.
C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.
If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.
£0 to £10,000
£10,000 to £50,000
£50,000 to £100,000
Automatically outbid immediately
When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours. You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.
Matching max bids
When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
