MTM had a quick look at the mapping and decided the 2.5 TFSI could actually deliver 465 HP and 570 Nm of torque. The result is a quicker 0 to 100 km/h time of just 3.3 seconds. She will also do 200 km/h in 11.5 seconds and will easily crack 300 km/h.
The cost of the upgrade is €2,890 plus another €400 for installation. Of course, there are other goodies available from MTM, a tuner well known for its work with the 2.5-liter engine.
For example, you can fit the TT RS with a €4,590 stainless steel exhaust with a butterfly valve that's controlled by a €450 remote. The famous V3 coilover suspension from KW can also be used to turn it into a track car for just €2,019. But they haven't messed with the styling yet, and that's probably a good thing.
Down below, you'll find a couple of POV videos from AutoTopNL. We'd like to think that those extra 65 HP make a difference. Unfortunately, the unrestricted autobahn still has trafic, so the TT RS can't fully stretch its legs. But you get a sense that it's an effortless speed machine designed for high-speed stability. Also, it makes a heck of a racket that most say can't be matched by the M2 or A45. If you want more, there's also a 500 HP TT RS from ABT, and it's even got extra aero.
