The Audi TT-RS – The car America years for

by Alex

While the Audi TT-RS is brewing up a storm in the European market, its debut into the American market yet hangs in balance. The only reply that one receives from the makers of the sports car when asked when it can be seen chasing speed records on American soil is that its still ‘under consideration’. It would be an unwise decision on part of Audi to ignore the US market especially given the sales figures that have been notched up by the Coupe and Roadster though the good thing is you now have a chance to voice your opinions.

There is discussion and conviction being pressed in by the US division people of Audi upon its bosses in Germany. Their endeavor is to convince the people in Germany the benefits of launching the TT-RS in the US. A note in Facebook gives an impression of a petition drive that has been launched for this. The FB line says “Audi is seriously rethinking its original plans for the range-topping TT model and wants to hear from you.”

For power the Audi TT-RS has a 2.5 liter five cylinder engine that generates an impressive 340 hp. The engine incorporates both direct injection as well as turbo charging technology. Acceleration figures of the car are 0 to 62 mph in 4.6 seconds and the top speed is 155 mph which is electronically controlled. The transmission system is six speed manual and for brakes it has the ventilated disc system with four piston aluminum calipers.

Good news is that an even more extreme version of the Audi – the RS5 coupe would be coming to the US market by 2012.
