There are plenty of people who would love to park an Audi R8 on their driveway, but are a bit short on cash. However, now there might be an alternative to satisfy their hunger for speed. Audi just launched the fastest version of their TT sports coupe at the 79th Geneva International Motor Show.
Listen to the engine sound of the Audi TT RS:
It is called the TT RS; a turbo-charged, five-cylinder engine, which produces 340hp, powers this version. That is enough to propel this sports car from 0-100km/h in 4.7 seconds and onto a top speed of 280km/h.
Its improved handling is aided by new aluminum-intensive McPherson struts front and back, and magnetic ride can also be optioned.
The car was driven onto the Geneva stage by works Audi driver Tom Kristensen who said, “This car is very agile and it drives as well as it looks. There is fantastic music played by this engine.”
No word yet on when the car will go on sale in North America (rumors are that it might not be available in Canada) or what it’ll be priced at, but it is safe to say it’ll be somewhere in between the Audi TTS and the R8.
