Through 2005, Audi sold just over 55,000 first-generation TTs, nearly half of them in the first two full years following the model’s launch. By 2006, the last year for the ‘8N’ generation, sales plummeted to just 954 units as Audi ramped up for the launch of the second-gen TT. This Imola Yellow 2006 TT 225 coupe with a 6-speed manual was sold new in November of 2006, and the original owner is now offering the car for sale at online auction site Cars and Bids.
This unapologetically yellow coupe is located in Phoenix and has covered a little more than 108,000 miles since delivery. The seller claims it is completely unmodified, making it either a rarity worth preserving or a blank canvas for the next owner to personalize. The black leather shows typical wear on the driver’s seat outer bolster and it currently has a sagging headliner, but overall condition looks to be quite good.
At the time of publication, the high bid was just $6,300, but we don’t expect that to hold steady. According to auction value site Classic.com, the average 2006 TT trades for a little over $19,000. The auction ends on June 19th, and anything could happen. Check out the full details and maybe throw down a bid at carsandbids.com.
