Audi TT-RS pricing

The 2012 Audi TT-RS now has its price available. The announcement was made by Audi of America. The car model represents the pinnacle of the TT model line, signifying the return of the RS nameplate to the U.S. Its price is of $56,850 and it does not include destination, charges, taxes, title, dealer charges as well as options. The award-winning 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder TFSI engine powers the Audi TT RS, delivering an impressive output of 360 HP and 343 lb-ft of torque between 1,650 and 5,400 rpm. The elements engineered into the TT RS include forged six-bearing crankshaft, weight optimized connection rods, sodium cooled exhaust valves and lightweight pistons with specifically adapted ring assembly. Even at low speeds, the car provides optimum combustion, superior power and rapid buildup of boost pressure due to the intelligent combination of FSI injection and high-efficiency turbocharger. The weight was considerably reduced by the aluminum and steel hybrid technology, allowing the TT RS to weigh 3,306 lbs, providing great aerodynamics and a smooth vehicle underbody. The design elements used for the Audi TT RS place it at the top of the model line with a high gloss black diamond-patterned grille, large front air inlets together with a fixed rear wing spoiler that ensures an increased down force. The refined style of the interior is enhanced by the contoured 3-spoke sport multifunction steering wheel, aluminum door sills with the RS logo, and RS-specific interior door handles.
A large number of electronic features are available for the Audi TT RS, such as Audi concert radio with single CD player and MP3 reading capability, and AM / FM / SAT radio with a complimentary 3-month subscription to SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
