2012 U.S.-spec Audi TT RS, Priced From $56,850
Those of you who live in the U.S. of A won’t have to wait anymore for the sexy Audi TT RS as it will go on sale in the following weeks at a starting price of $56,850, without counting the dealer charges, destination charges, title, taxes and so on.
You’d be happy to hear that the U.S. version is more powerful than its European counterpart as its 5-cylinder TFSI turbocharged 2.5-liter produces 360 hp and a peak torque of 343 lb.-ft whereas the European version packs 340 hp and 331 lb.-ft (450 Nm). This entire horsepower is sent to all the wheels via Audi’s quattro system and a 6-speed manual transmission.
The Ingolstadt-based manufacturer says that the TT RS is capable of reaching 62 mph from start in only 4.1 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 174 mph (280 km/h). The car also benefits from the Audi magnetic ride that permits the suspension characteristic to be actively modified, along with exclusive 19-inch alloys, prominent body sills, exterior mirror housings available in matte aluminum as well as a fixed rear wing.
As standard, the 2012 U.S.-spec Audi TT RS comes with a 3-spoke sport multifunction steering wheel, RS-specific interior handles, aluminum door sills that have the RS logo, leather seat coverings, 10-way power sport front seats (with 3-step heating), LED ambient lightning and brushed aluminum interior inlays.
