I don’t think I’ve ever hidden my love for the 2nd generation TT especially the RS version. I remember the 1st time I laid eyes on one and on the same day, driving it through the mountains of Central Pennsylvania. That sound, the handling, the beautiful design…instant love. Since then, I’ve fantasized on and off of owning one. This one popped up on my Facebook feed and lo and behold…I know the owner. Nick Mercadante is the Marketing Manager for 034Motorsport. Finding this out, I knew this TT RS was well taken care of. Here’s the ad:
Letting go of my 2013 Audi TT RS.
The car is mostly stock with upgraded components and a freshly built engine. The entire front clip is PPF’d, it is up to date on maintenance and comes with 2 keys. The car looks, drives, and sounds great, and will be a great car for someone looking to enjoy close to stock or use as a solid platform for a higher power build. Car is Located in San Jose California,
Options: Daytona Gray Peal, Tech Package, Titanium Exhaust, OEM Folding Carbon Mirrors, Heated Seats. Original window sticker included with the car Mods/Maintenance: -Boostline Connecting Rods -Wiseco Pistons -New OEM TT RS Crankshaft from Audi -Racingline Intake -Wagner Evo 2 Intercooler -034Motorsport Strut Top Reinforcement Plates -Tracklite 18″ wheels on Bridgestone RE71Rs -034Motorsport Stage 1 tune -Modified factory catback (done by previous owner) -New Windshield
With the end of production for the TT, the onslaught of electric vehicles, and with more and more manufacturers killing the manual transmission, the 2nd generation TT RS will become an instant modern classic if it hasn’t already. With 2 kids in college for the next several years, disposable income isn’t handy in my household but it could be in yours. You can find this Daytona Grey 2013 Audi TT RS HERE and when you do buy it, say Hi to Nick for us.
