Yesterday, we brought you news of the mighty Audi R8 LMS customer racer making it across the pond to meet Grand-Am regulations next year. Now, we bring another hardcore car wearing the four-ring badge, the five-cylinder TT-RS that’s now ready for sale, with prices starting at €180,000, which is just over a cool quarter million dollars.
We’ve already seen it in action at the hands of of Audi drivers at the recent Nurburgring 24 Hours, where it took a class win in the SP4T class, but now customers from across the world will be able to enjoy the turbocharged beast on the track.

To save weight, the TT-RS actually dropped the heavy four-wheel drive in favor of a system similar to that on the base TT: front wheel drive. Fortunately, no cylinders have been lobbed off the engine, so this still produces about 350 horsepower.
