We know that Audi and Volkswagen share the same mother, but we still can’t find any reason why someone would badge a 2000 Audi TT with
Volkswagen logos. He could’ve just gotten a Volkswagen Golf if that’s all he wanted to do. After all, the Golf – as well as the Jetta, the Beetle , the Seat Leon , and the Skoda Octavia – shares the same platform, engine, and mechanics with the TT so he could’ve just spared himself and the ensuing public reaction a lot of trouble.
But this guy, who by the way is selling his re-badged TT on eBay, doesn’t see a problem with that. Heck, he even took his VW logo fascination past the TT’s exterior by adding some emblems on the car’s seats too.
His justification: "I just added Volkswagen logos around to make it look different, since they are the same company." Ok, sure. That explains it a great deal, except that the scent of irony is a tad too intoxicating.
In any event, if you want to bid for this - and we can probably say this with full certainty - rather ’special’ one-off TT, the auction’s currently on-going on eBay.
