Audi introduces 360-hp TT RS 'plus'

A few months ago, we heard word Audi was hard at work on an even sharper version of its TT RS, and as it turns out, those rumors were true. Well, sort of. The German automaker has unveiled the Audi TT RS 'plus' in the EU, though the vehicle produces the same 360 horsepower as the fire-breather we sampled last year. The 0-60 mph dash takes the same 4.1 seconds, though buyers in the old country will have the option of outfitting their purchase with a seven-speed dual-clutch S-tronic gearbox. Likewise, the TT RS plus is available in both hardtop and convertible configurations, whereas buyers in the U.S. can only have theirs as a fixed-roof coupe with a manual gearbox.

Interestingly enough, Audi lists the vehicle's curb weight at 3,196.7 pounds, which is just over 100 pounds lighter than what the company quoted us for the U.S.-spec model back in October. Given the weight reduction, we would expect slightly improved performance over the American TT RS, but the 0-60 mph figures are nearly identical.

It wasn't long after we drove the TT RS that whispers of an even brawnier TT RS 'plus' surfaced. The vehicle was rumored to have 385 horsepower and weigh in at 130 pounds less than the standard model. You know what they say: One out of two ain't bad... or something. Hit the jump for the press release.Continue reading Audi introduces 360-hp TT RS 'plus'

First time I can actually say I sort of like this.
never liked TT's but I kinda dig that one.
Have always liked TT's, now I don't know.
looks like a ladybug to me. a man-eating head-biting ladybug. if it wasn't stupidly expensive, i wouldnt mind owning one.
I've always liked the TT, looking forward to see what it can do :)
the TTRS is a fast car, my friend has one, and his car is nearly on parr with mine.

they are probably the best car money can buy for "that" kind of performance... except Evo X's of course. :D

They have that evo "Bark" as well on boost, I like em.
