Usually when we talk about ABT projects, it's adding 50 horsepower here and 30 Nm there to make a better diesel or a Golf with maybe as much as 300 horsepower. However, their latest project is much more serious.
The Germans have targeted Audi's smallest sportier, the TT-RS, and found magic can happen when you play with the five-cylinder turbo. The 2.5-liter TFSI has already won Engine Of the Year a number of times, but the 340 hp stock configuration has been pushed to new extremes.

Both the TT-RS and TT-RS Plus can be tuned to 470 hp (346 kW) and 630 Nm of torque. This makes the 4.2 meter sportscar more powerful than an RS5 or an R8. New performance figures are equally as impressive: 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 285 km/h.

Visually, the Audi is treated to front and rear spoilers, a set of 19 or 20-inch wheels, as well as sport exhausts, upgraded suspension and brakes.

“That’s how a car should look like,” says Hans-Jürgen Abt, the CEO of company. “For us, both the coupé and the roadster are an ideal basis to work with. After all, you can tell that it wants to perform by simply looking at a TT“
