2-Tone Mk1 TT
« on: August 17, 2017, 09:18:40 pm »
Anyone else done this?

https://www.pistonheads.com/news/ph-germancars/audi-tt-quattro-sport-catch-it-while-you-can/30815

Inspired by the 2005 TT Quattro Sport which was only sold in Europe, this wee plain-jane silver TT needed some paint to get ready for sale so I decided to make it into something different

Black mirror housings and black 17" 9-spoke S4 reps to follow yet

Are there any others kicking about in other parts of the country that have had the same treatment - I have never seen one down here in the South

Couple more pics

opinions (but please try to suppress the usual "hairdresser's car" etc hatred for the TT)?

I have a Roadster in my own collection and stick firmly to the opinion that it's a future classic

it's a bit difficult to say with the bumpers off, but provisionally I like it, highlights the greenhouse in a manner that echos AUDI concept cars of the era like the Avus

I know the Avus was all polished alloy, but the cab forward greenhouse was a strong styling element

I really like it, I think it improves the vehicle by subduing the bubble appearance.

except it also looks like a genuine TT Quattro Sport?  ;)

We here have commented in the past that the RCZ's should all be crushed for plagiarism. "Like an ugly kid thinking a cool hairstyle will make him popular"

(and looking at this photo, isn't silver a pig of a colour to match for repairs!)

The comments so far are reassuringly positive, especially the fact that nobody yet has said they have ever seen one like it here in NZ?

the pic of the silver tt in the paint booth reminds me...

there's an orange tt mk1 in town and it looks rather nice from across the road ...

Yea, the orange looks hot - not very common. Probably a 3.2, in which case the V6 front bumper also has a lot to do with the look?
