      Looks fantastic with this black-red combo! 4,1 s? The TT RS S-tronic already did 3,9... this thing will be a monster.

        I bet Deckhook and Poverty love this car. Performance is impressive, but I like the Quattro Concept with its longitudinally placed engine far more.

          Where can I order one? :)

          Man, as DeDe already said.. the normal RS does 3.9 seconds.. So this thing will sure be a monster that will give even an R8 GT a run for its money!

          No I do not think. When we'll se this TT-RS Plus @ Geneva there we'll also see the all new A3.

            autoweek reports 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds for the S-Tronic version, and 4.3 seconds for the manual gearbox (360 hp version)

            And Audi.nl reports 4.3 seconds 0-100 km/h for the TT RS S-Tronic, and 4.5 seconds 0-100 km/h for the 6 gang manual (340 hp version)

            Don't know where in the world 3.9 seconds comes from, probably some real life test in optimum conditions with the best possible tires...
            But yea, this car will be a monster no doubt, and will definitely go below 4.0 secs 0-100 km/h in some tests....and will do 4.3 secs in other tests...


            0-100 km/h is meaningless in a car with this kind of power and AWD. Better check 0-200 km/h, or 0-300 km/h and the TT will be annihilated by the R8 GT like there's no tomorrow.

            Well, in Car & Driver or Motortrend, they did it in 3,6 seconds, but I not trust a single word coming from them.

              Not a car I would spent extra money on. I rather pick a standard TT-RS. And whats up with red wheels? stupid idea.

              3,9 s came from AutoBild Sportscars. AMS did 4,1 s with the normal TT RS S-tronic.

                It's very easy to dismiss the TTRS when you haven't driven one but if you have you can't not be won over by the way it accelerates and all from a tiny 2.5L engine.

                The extra 20 horses aren't really necessary but are still welcome but for me I can't wait to see how much the new chassis will improve things in its replacement.

                What's the big deal? That's hardly a significant increase in power, I doubt you'd even feel it..

                I can tell you at least 5-6 tests when the TT RS S-Tronic went between 3.6-3.9 seconds to 100km/h. It's that fast.
                The last RS6 had 4.5 seconds in the books, but did 4.1-4.2 in many tests (sedan). Audi are very careful with the numbers nowadays.

                  May 2012, RS3 Plus?

                  BMW has to come with 1M CSL :D :D

                  I doubt that the 20hp extra, will make the RS3 as fun to drive as the 1M :D

                  Different customers for each car so I did see BMW needing to compete here. The RS3 is an extremely quick cross-country mile muncher which an extra 20hp will only increase this ability even more, it's definitely no track star.

                  True. Give me 408 PS from this 2.5-litre and a longitudinally-mounted engine, with a proper quattro system. That one with Torsen centre differential. Not the Haldex 4WD based-on-demand. Nor the crown-gear diff (RS5, A5/S5 facelift). And let's not forget the MTM A1 (or the 'original' A1 clubsport quattro for the Wörthersee) with 503 PS. But that would be an extra-large-Plus version. :)

                  Thanks M, nice find! However, what Audi really needs to do with this car is a TT RS Minus....

                  And that's fine. Why on earth would Audi try to build a car that would to head to head with the 1M when Audi can make five times the money doing what Audi does best?
