Audi TT PPI PS TT Coupe

The PPI RS TT was the name given to the first generation of Audi TT models tuned by PPI, which actually became the top seller and foundation for the success of this Audi tuning specialist from Germany. The tuner is now preparing a new generation. The new model, the PPI PS TT features innovative and sporty design and it offers advanced, masterful technology and driving pleasure. The main focus of the specialists was turned towards the aerodynamic efficiency. In the end, the engineers obtained a lift-reducing, custom design with perfect surface quality. One of the components is the sporty, dynamic front apron. Then there is the integrated front lip that takes the air to the cooling inlets and makes a car look lower on the ground. The PPI side sills provide a visual link between the front and rear end. These lend the PPI PS TT a powerful look, even when stationary. Especially for the original rear apron, the tuner has developed a rear diffuser. A multi-piece rear spoiler II made from carbon fiber is also available as an option. Further carbon fiber trim components, such as the door mirror housing and the tail panel fascias, complete the aerodynamic package. The center of attention when it comes to the performance package is the kit I developed for the 2.0-liter FSI engine of the Audi TT. The engine is now capable of developing 245 BHP and 366 Nm of torque. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.3 seconds and to reach a top speed of 250 km/h. The model is actually 0.3 seconds faster than its production counterpart. PPI offers a combination for significantly enhanced handling, plus an exclusive visual appearance. To send the power to the road, the engineers have provided black, single-look PPI Formula wheels measuring 8.5 x 19 ET 48 covered in 235/35 ZR19 Michelin Pilot Sport2 tires.
