Audi TT RS Plus Has 360 HP. Pricing Announced [Photo Gallery]
The five-cylinder transversally mounted engine has received an extra 20 hp for a grand total of 360 hp. There’ also 15 more Nm of torque for that meaty in-gear feel, and also a new exhaust flap that will transform the engine noise once you really go for it.
The fastest TT production car is now the RS Plus with an S tronic gearbox, which can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in 4.1 seconds. The manual version takes 4.3 seconds, while the S tronic Roadster takes 4.2 seconds. When it comes to topping out, every TT RS Plus does so at 280km/h (174mph).
Cosmetically, the TT RS Plus comes with new 19-inch wheels with contrasting red rim flanges, mirror caps made from CFRP. The grille is new and so is that aluminum-look mesh. There’s also a bit of carbon on the engine cover to impress your friends with.
Pricing in Germany comes in at €60,650 for the manual Coupe €62,800 for the S tronic version. For the drop-top manual, you’ll be paying €63,500 or €65,650 for the auto box with launch control.
