This is a 2000 FWD Audi TT MK1 that has been converted to a dedicated track car. Although it was converted to a track car several years ago, an enormous amount of very recent work has gone into this one-of-a-kind car to get it to its current condition. When we recently set out to recreate the car as Lightning McQueen we also decided to complete a major refresh and upgrade at the same time. The following work was completed within the past two years, during which time the car saw less than 3 hours of total track time, as it quickly became more of a show vehicle once it received its custom Lightning McQueen wrap, decals, and emblems.-Custom Lightning McQueen wrap - all graphics 100% custom ($5,495)-Installation of 6-point professional cage ($6,800)-Removal of OEM gas tank and installation of new ATL custom aluminum Super Cell 100 24-gallon fuel cell w bladder and internal ATL CF104 high pressure fuel pump with custom 3-door surge tank. $3,040-Removal of OEM fuel lines and installation of new 910 PTFE Lined Aramid lightweight braided racing fuel hoses-Relocated battery to rear passenger compartment and installed new heavy-duty cables from front to rear w Taylor aluminum battery box-Installed new FAST Racer Series Cool Suit System 13 quart ($400)-New Brembo 328mm x 28mm front big brake kit 1A3.6007.A1K including 2 Piece slotted rotors ($3,095) -New Brembo 256mm x 22mm rear rotors- New PAGID yellow race pads front.

It includes an APR carbon adjustable rear wing.The car weight is 2650 lbs dry. It handles extremely well and is very responsive. We have owned numerous race cars and understand the importance of handling over power. This car was a beautifully handling track car with a stock engine before it received its current significant HP upgrades. It has always received “Gibbs” full synthetic racing oil and regular maintenance. It has never been driven hard and has never been involved in an accident. Since the Lightning McQueen livery and newest upgrades were completed, it has been driven very gently to protect the aesthetics. Many of the upgrades were completed by our local Porsche/Audi racing shop, and it was recently in the shop for maintenance and a check of compression and leak down. Results were excellent and are available upon request. There are numerous additional new parts that will go with the car. Most of them are captured in the photos. They include but are not limited to the following: Ignition, coils, plugs, brake master, clutch master, clutch slave, springs, accelerator pedal, brake pads, full engine gasket set, wheel bearings, belt, pulley, speed/reference sensors, ignition coil, and ecu tuning cable.The wrap is in excellent condition with only a few very, very minor chips. I have tried to capture all of them in the photos. In areas of extreme curvature like the mirrors, there is some wrinkling of the wrap. It has been this way since new and can be seen in the photos. If you have any questions please ask, as my goal is to provide as many photos as necessary and be as transparent as possible. You are also welcome to take a look at the car in person at any time during the auction.
