Audi TT Mk 1 (8N) Model History

First unveiled as a prototype at the 1995 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Audi TT arrived on forecourts three years later. The public reaction was positive, the clean lines of the bodywork being a real departure from the business-like designs of Audi's other models. The press were slightly less positive, especially after a series of high-speed accidents that forced a recall to fit a bonnet spoiler and ESP system. Nevertheless, these issues didn't affect sales - over 275,000 were built globally over its production run. Based on the VAG PQ34 platform, the Audi TT was initially fitted with a five-speed (later six) 1.8-Litre, straight-four engine delivering either 178bhp or 222bhp. A Haldex Quattro 4WD system was standard on the 222bhp model and optional on the lower-powered model. For the first year offered as a two-door coupe, a roadster followed in 1999. From 2003, a 3.2-Litre VR6 engine delivering 247bhp was offered, giving a formidable top speed of 155mph and 0-60 of 6.1 seconds. Finally, in May 2005, the Audi TT Quattro Sport arrived, significantly lightened and although using the smaller 1.8 engine, with turbocharger it produced 237bhp and with uprated suspension was quicker off the mark than the naturally-aspirated VR6. Just 800 were delivered to the UK.

Today, the Mark I Audi TT is emerging as an affordable classic. The TT Sport Quattro and 3.2-Litre VR6 variants are the most sought-after, but low-mileage, well-maintained cars are starting to become cherished.
