The racing AUDI TT GT4 from 2000, 380 HP
The Audi TT is a series of 2-door production sports cars and convertibles, made by Audi since 1998, in its third generation since 2014. The first two generations were assembled by Audi’s Hungarian subsidiary, one of the world’s biggest engine making plants, using bodyshells manufactured and painted at Audi’s Ingolstadt plant and parts made entirely by the Hungarian factory for the third generation.
TT Mk1 (Type 8N, 1998–2006)
The production model (internal designation Type 8N) was launched as a coupé in September 1998, followed by a roadster in August 1999. It is based on the Volkswagen Group A4 (PQ34) platform as used for the Volkswagen Golf Mk4, the original Audi A3, the Škoda Octavia, and others. The styling differed little from the concept, except for slightly reprofiled bumpers, and the addition of rear quarterlight windows behind the doors. Factory production commenced in October 1998.
