2002 Audi TT Roadster 225 quattro

The Audi TT may have felt solidly like a child of the post 9/11 world, but in fact by the early 2000s it was already a pretty old design. The concept car toured the show circuits in 1995. First was the Frankfurt International Car show for the Coupe; later that year, the ‘TTS Roadster’ hit the scene in Tokyo.

While the Coupe would hit the market in 1998 en mass, it wouldn’t be until 2000 that the Roadster model finally was available for purchase. Now with the 225 horsepower 1.8T motor and quattro all-wheel drive, the Roadster was a hit and a serious step up in performance from the outgoing Cabriolet, which had soldiered the B4 chassis on to 1998. The 1.8T was massaged and the boost turned up to generate 225 horsepower and 207 lb.ft of torque, available with a 6-speed manual gearbox and all-wheel drive – much more punch than the B4’s V6 had, and it was a model only available in FrontTrak automatic form in the US. For enthusiasts, this was a boon; even the heavy TT Roadster could hustle from 0-60 in a tick over 6 seconds. These have never really dipped into “purchase on a whim this weekend” pricing, but that’s a good thing – and truth told, they’ve also never been incredibly expensive. Top down, reasonably reliable fun with good looks and enough go to make you smile? Seems like a smart buy:

There’s not much in terms of actual information about the car, but mileage is far below average and condition looks to be great. The color is Lake Silver Metallic – not the most adventurous on these, but a nice-looking silver, and inside you’ve got Valcona leather upholstery – again not as neat as the baseball leather, but not black – and fine for a convertible. It looks to generally be in good shape. This one has the forged “Fat 5” wheels, Bose audio, xenon headlights, and heated seats – the important options were picked. There are a few condition issues and no indication of mechanical history, so you’d want to start off doing the timing belt and it’ll likely need a suspension refresh in the not-too-distant future. Still, $14,000 buys you a 225 horsepower turbocharged convertible that really can be used year-round, and it’s stylish to boot? These still seem like a strong value.

    these look better in person rather than in photos. A friend of mine had one with the show car baseball glove interior….it looked very nice. He also had some turbo mods done…it was pretty quick
