driving fast on a race track requires skill, precision and a light touch.
That is, unless you happen to be driving the Audi TT-RS.

TT-RS gives an historical nod to Audis past, while delivering decidedly
modern performance, blasting to 60 mph faster than even the R8.

2012 Audi TT RS Test Drive & Sports Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/audi/tt-rs/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Audi TT RS has
style, luxury, comfort, and most importantly performance. This vehicle is
quite unique and makes for loads of fun while driving. This limited edition
model will be imported by Audi with only a few hundred models being sold
here in the U.S. per year. The amount of performance that comes from this
car is nothing short of amazing considering the starting price is only
$56,850. For under $60k you get a great little sports car that can run from
0-60 MPH in 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 174 MPH.
The 2012 Audi TT RS is all about performance. The engine is a high-powered
turbocharged 2.5 liter 5-cylinder that
cranks out an amazing 360 horsepower and 343 lb-ft. of
torque. The only transmission offered is a 6-speed manual. More power means
more stress on the engine components so Audi engineers reinforced the
engine internals to handle the additional stress of a turbocharger. Audi made a big name for itself with
the Quattro all wheel drive system. The TT RS employs a sophisticated
Quattro AWD system with an advanced dynamic torque vectoring technology
that yields great handling in all types of weather. The suspension is made
of Magnetic Ride control shocks that change with the road conditions. There
are large brakes and lightweight rims to help slow the car. Weight has been
kept down thanks to Audi's Space Frame technology.
The Audi TT is a very unique looking car and the TT RS takes this one step
further. Up front the 2012 Audi TT RS has a larger air inlet area located
in the front bumper with a gloss-black grille. Out back a really trick rear
diffuser helps move trapped air out from under the car while a great
sounding dual Exhaust finishes the
look. The rear wing is fixed and looks very aggressive adding much needed
down force at high speeds. There are a few TT RS badges located inside and
out that designate this little sports car as something special. Finally the
LED running lights are maybe one of the most recognizable features on an
The 2012 Audi TT RS packs some serious power for such a low base price. If
you are in the market for a sports car that combines luxury and performance
than the TT RS is a great bet.
