2012 Audi TT RS "Plus" revealed


There was some talk of an even more powerful TT RS variant on its way, and now Audi has taken the wraps off their TT RS "Plus". Using the same 2.5L 5-cylinder turbo from the RS, this Plus model has 20 more horsepower for a total of 360bhp. 0-100 km/h (62 mph) will take just 4.1 seconds with S-Tronic, and top speed will reach 280 km/h (174 mph). Nipping at the heels or Porsche, the TT RS Plus is now in the ranks of Boxster/Cayman performance.

Aside from the bump in power, the Plus model has a few exterior changes including a polished anthracite diamond-mesh grille, carbon fiber side mirrors, black tailpipes, and black with red 19-inch five-arm "Rotor" design wheels.

It will go on sale here in Germany in Spring 2012 (sorry, no U.S.) and priced from €60,650 - €65,65 depending on transmission and coupe/roadster.
