Audi has been reluctant to send the high performance TT RS to the U.S. but now that the Facebook petitions convinced them to do so they decided to treat the Americans with a better version of the car!
Apparently the American TT RS will get 360 hp form its five-cylinder Turbo engine instead of the 340 that the European models have. That’s been achieved by using an updated software for the engine’s ECU. What effect that 20 more horses are going to have o the car’s performance? Well not that big of an effect, but just knowing that your car has more power than what they get in Europe is cool!
What’s more the US-Spec car benefits from various styling kits and visual tweaks such as blacked-out grille. That’s not saying much because Europeans get them too. What they get and Americans won’t are the Recaro seats and the optional DSG transmission. The US model only gets a six-speed manual. The car can also be fitted with sport exhausts for a deeper noise.
Official specs and pricing of the car are yet to be confirmed.
