2009 Audi TT RS World Premiere at Geneva, More Pics
"A legend is reborn. After all, powerful five-cylinder gasoline engines have a long legacy at Audi. And the turbocharged direct-fuel-injection engine in the TT RS is the new torchbearer of this dynamic tradition. It enables the TT RS to perform extraordinary feats," Audi explained, emphasizing the figures provided by the aforementioned engine.
The performances are indeed fairly surprising the 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is done in about 5 seconds with maximum speed electronically-limited to 250 km/h (155.34 mph).
In addition, the car comes with all-wheel drive system, a slightly redesigned chassis plus enhanced brakes to handle the high output the aforementioned engine produces. "All in all, the compact TT RS – with its lightweight and largely aluminum body constructed as per the Audi Space Frame principle – is a driving machine to be reckoned with," Audi concluded.
As you can see for yourself, only a little is known at this time but the German manufacturer promises to bring us all the details we would need on March 3 during a press conference held at the Geneva Auto Show.
