The last week or so, a couple of cars have popped up for sale with ridiculously low miles. There is the 2002 Volkswagen GTI 25th Anniversary with eight miles on it that is going on the auction block later this month at Silverstone Auctions and then there’s this 2002 Audi TT ALMS with 7k miles. While not so ridiculous as 8 miles, this specimen is quite the find and quite the TT.
Only 1000 total ALMS models were imported to the States: 500 Avus Silver over red leather and 500 in Misano Red over silver. This has to be one of the lowest mileage TTs out there, regardless of being an ALMS or not. Here’s the ad:
This 2002 Audi TT ALMS Commemorative Edition is one of 1,000 examples built to commemorate Audi Sport North America’s championships in the 2000 and 2001 American Le Mans Series. The car was purchased new by the seller from Key Audi of Jacksonville, Florida, and now has 7k miles. The car is finished in Misano Red over silver Nappa leather upholstery, and power comes from a turbocharged 1.8-liter inline-four paired with a six-speed manual transaxle and Quattro all-wheel drive. Equipment includes the Audio and Convenience packages, xenon headlights, Bose premium sound, cruise control, and heated front seats. This ALMS Commemorative TT is now offered with its window sticker, manufacturer’s literature, two keys, service records, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Florida title in the seller’s name.
The body is finished in Misano Red Pearl Effect and features a rear spoiler, fog lights, xenon headlights with washers, an aluminum fuel filler cap, power-adjustable heated side mirrors, and dual exhaust outlets. A custom-made ALMS badge is affixed under the TT badge, and the finish, trim, and glass can be seen in detail in the gallery below.
Silver-finished 18″ alloy wheels are wrapped in 225/40 Michelin Pilot Sport tires that show date codes from 2002. The car is equipped with four-wheel disc brakes and electronic stability control.
The seats are upholstered in silver Nappa leather, which extends to the door panels, center console, shifter, and handbrake lever. Equipment includes heated front seats, automatic climate control, cruise control, and a factory CD stereo with Bose premium sound and a six-disc CD changer.
The silver leather-wrapped steering wheel frames a tachometer with a 6,600-rpm redline, a 160-mph speedometer, a digital display, and auxiliary gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates 7k miles.
The turbocharged and intercooled 1.8-liter inline-four was factory rated at 225 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. Records indicate the oil was most recently changed in April 2020.
Power is delivered to all four wheels via a six-speed manual transaxle, an electronically-controlled center differential, and Quattro all-wheel drive. Additional underside photos are provided in the gallery below.
The window sticker lists factory colors, equipment, options, and a total price of $42,045.
The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists registration and service history in Florida with one registered owner.
I know I’ve mentioned it many times that the front end of the MK1 TT turns me off but I really dig this one. The color, the rarity, and the condition of this one is perfect. As of publication, the bidding is up to $33,333 and there’s less than a day left. It’ll be interesting to see what the final bid will be. You can find this ALMS on Bring A Trailer HERE.
