ZUR DEUTSCHEN VERSION
more dynamic: the Audi TT RS plus
February 10, 2012 – Even more powerful, even faster, even more
dynamic: Early 2012 will see the launch of the Audi TT RS plus.
|This compact sports
car, in both Coupé and Roadster versions, stands out for its
awe-inspiring performance. Its power-boosted five-cylinder turbo
delivers 265 kW (360 hp), sufficient for a top speed of 280 km/h
The 2.5-liter TFSI in the Audi TT RS plus is a high-performance engine.
Compared with the engine on which it is based, this turbocharged
direct-injection unit delivers 15 kW (20 hp) more power. It produces
465 Nm (342.97 lb-ft) of torque, 15 Nm (11.06 lb-ft) more than before.
Customers can choose between a manual six-speed transmission and the
seven-speed S tronic with its lightning-fast gearshifts. The
dual-clutch transmission comes with a launch control function which
optimizes acceleration from a standing start. The quattro permanent
all-wheel drive system, which operates with a multi-plate clutch,
transfers engine power to the road in supreme style.
The TT RS plus unites dynamics and efficiency in a most impressive way.
Against the backdrop of the five-cylinder engine’s
characteristic roaring and growling, the Coupé with S tronic
catapults from a standstill to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.1 seconds
(with manual transmission: 4.3 seconds). The Roadster completes the
same exercise in 4.2 seconds (with manual transmission: 4.4 seconds).
Top speed is limited to
280 km/h (173.98 mph) for all versions of the car. The Coupé
with S tronic uses an average of just 8.5 liters of fuel per 100 km
(27.67 US mpg); the Roadster uses
8.6 liters per 100 km (27.35 US
Alongside numerous efficiency-improving measures, these top figures are
due primarily to the extremely lightweight Audi Space Frame (ASF)
bodies made of aluminum at the front and sheet steel at the rear. The
Coupé with manual transmission, including quattro drive,
weighs just 1,450 kilograms (3,196.70 lb); its power-to-weight ratio is
4.0 kilograms (8.82 lb) per horsepower. The power-to-weight ratio of
the Roadster is 4.2 kilograms (9.26 lb) per horsepower.
The high-performance brake system is able to cope with the
engine’s power at all times. Four-piston fixed calipers in
conjunction with perforated brake disks are installed on the front
axle. The Audi TT RS plus is fitted with 19-inch cast wheels of
five-arm “Rotor” design; they are painted black
with contrasting red rim flanges. The wheels are fitted with 255/35
tires. The adaptive damping system known as Audi magnetic ride is
available as an option. A large, fixed rear wing increases downforce at
the back of the car.
The Singleframe radiator grille also sets the Audi TT RS plus apart
visually: Its diamond-pattern mesh is in highly polished anthracite,
its trim frame has a matt aluminum-look finish. The housings of the
exterior mirrors are made of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP).
The dual-branch sport exhaust system has black oval tailpipe trims. A
sound flap further intensifies the sound of the engine. The Carbon
design package gives the engine compartment a more exclusive look. The
knob on the gear or selector lever features an aluminum-look trim ring
and a TT RS plus badge.
The TT RS plus Coupé with manual transmission costs
€60,650 in Germany or €62,800 with the seven-speed S
The TT RS plus Roadster has a list price of €63,500 or
