Australia Gets Audi TT-RS Limited Edition S Tronic

Audi TT-RS

At the upcoming Australian International Motor Show, the German automaker Audi has announced that it will bring a limited edition of its sexy TT-RS model. Only 45 units will be made and all of them will come with a seven-speed S Tronic gearbox, along with additional equipment that usually costs $8,460 but Aussies will get it for free.

This gearbox is already available in Europe and thanks to it; the TT-RS can do the 0-62 mph sprint in only 4.3 seconds, which is 0.3 quicker in comparison to the standard 6-speed transmission. The extra gear has been configured by the engineers at Audi as a high-geared overdrive that reduces engine speed at highway speeds, which allows the coupe to consume only 8.5 liters / 100 km and emit 197 g / km of CO2.

Aside from the additional performance brought to the car, this gearbox features an incorporated launch control function which provides maximum power at a minimum wheel spin via Audi’s famous quattro AWD system. The top speed of this TT-RS Limited Edition S Tronic is limited electronically at 250 km/h.

The car features the same 5-cylinder TFSI 2.5-liter engine that generates 335 hp (340 PS / 250 kW) and has a peak torque of 332 lb.-ft (450 Nm).
