“The Audi TT is a true design icon that has been captivating car enthusiasts for 25 years. It was fantastic to meet the members of the German TT Owners Club in person and to feel their enthusiasm for our sporty and elegant model, our Hungaricum. We are proud to have been able to show them during their visit where the birth of an Audi model particularly dear to us, Hungarians, took place,” said Zoltán Les, Member of the Board of Management of Audi Hungaria responsible for Vehicle Manufacturing.
With hundreds of members, the TT Owners Club is one of the largest car clubs in the world. The aim of the club is to foster the heritage of the Audi TT models, strengthen the community of TT owners and enthusiasts, preserve the condition of the vehicle models and to promote road safety. The club has been working together with many other car clubs and AUDI AG for more than 20 years.
Audi has made design history with the Audi TT models. Since its debut in 1998, the sports car has wowed people around the world with its unique style and driving experience. In 1999, Auto Europe voted the Audi TT as the best new car of the year, which was also a real novelty at Audi Hungaria, since it was the TT model that the company started its vehicle manufacturing with. At first, the lacquered bodywork of the TTs arrived by train from Ingolstadt to Győr, where the Győr-based staff carried out the final assembly of the vehicles. In 2013, with the opening of the new vehicle factory, the entire production process moved to Győr — from the press shop through the body shop and paint shop to the final assembly of the cars. In 25 years, over 650,000 TT models have been produced at Audi Hungaria.
