Find of the Day: 2012 Audi TT RS – A Shark in Wolf’s Clothing

Ok…this is how you write a ‘For Sale’ ad for your car: write a blog post, include many photos, and even a video. Much better than the regular ads you see on Facebook, definitely better than ads you see on craigslist, and even better than some dealer ads.

Sadly, after spending a lot of time and money on it, Nick is selling it but for a great reason…he has a child on the way and the TT RS isn’t quite the family car. While I’m not going to quote the whole blog post on it, I will feature the highlights from Nick and a 14min video:

Key highlights:

  • Full motor build with upgraded internals, big turbo kit and upgraded clutch done by Iroz Motorsports in March 2019 at an expense of $11K; dyno proven gains show a little over 500 whp!
  • Just 7K miles since the motor build and a mere 41.5K on the chassis and rest of the car – extremely low mileage for a 2012
  • Fully documented service history with every receipt while owned. Recent PPI confirmed no outstanding issues and recent maintenance in 2020 includes oil change, spark plugs, battery and new intake manifold cover.
  • Car has a Xpel Clear Bra over entire front clip, is fully ceramic coated, and has a recently resprayed bottom splitter and side skirt to remove any scraping on underside of car – exterior is a 9.5/10
  • Unique and tasteful mods including 034 Motorsport handling mods, MSS Kits springs, and much more (see full mod list here). Please note the HREs and Euro Recaro wingbacks were sold separately.

The car has been meticulously maintained, always garaged (both work and home are indoor garages) and lived its entire life in the Southwest with no exposure to snow, salt, or anything but sunshine and occasional rain.

That being said below I’ll go into more detail about everything you should know before inquiring or making an offer!

The TT RS only has 42,600 miles with 7,000 miles since the build. The best part though? You get all this for $37,000. The car is being sold on its stock wheels so if you decide to keep them on, you will be driving a Great White in wolf’s clothing. You can read all the details HERE on Nick’s blog.
