Avus Performance tunes the Audi TT-RS

The Audi TT-RS is one of my all time favourite cars. I don’t know why, but I love it. Now, the crazy men at Avus Performance have gone and made it even better.

As soon as you look at it, you know it’s something special. Matte black paint looks brilliant on Audis, just a shame Audi doesn’t offer it as a standard colour. Then there are the matching black rims. It looks menacing. It’s a calm, restrained, Audi TT-RS put on steroids. For life. And boy, do those steroids works brilliantly.

Just look at the figures. 460bhp (Up 120 from the original car), 472 lb-ft of torque (Up 140 from the original car), 0-60mph in 3.8 seconds (Down .8 seconds from the original car). The best part, though, is that all that power results in a top speed of 194mph. They usually underestimate figures like these though, so I reckon you could get 200mph out of it. That means that you’re leaving the sports car territory of the original TT-RS and entering the menacing world of supercars. This car has got its big brother in its sights, the R8.

Press Release

Audi TT-RS – The new “Ur-Quattro”

October 2009 – Latest creation from AVUS PERFORMANCE is something special for all Audi fans, especially
those who remember the Ur-Quattro with its blistering 5 cyl. turbo sound. The remake by Audi is
better known as the TT-RS which shares the engine and of course the sound.

With a stock power of 340bhp and 332 lb/ft of torque it is capable of doing the 0-60 in 4.6s.
AVUS PERFORMANCE takes it a step forward and improves the power and the look of the TT-RS.
Adjustable coilovers, gloss black 20″ Sportec Mono wheels make the TT-RS look much more
aggressive. Thanks to the special setup which improves the factory suspension even further and
makes the TT run a lot smoother not only on country roads. Different setups for the race track are
avaiable either.

The matt black skin is something you will probably notice first when seeing the TT-RS. True to the
motto „Gloss is out, matt is IN” tuner AVUS PERFORMANCE changes it to matt black (other colors
avaiable on request). To give the TT-RS the final touch for the race track power has been increased significantly to a stunning 460bhp and more than 472 lb/ft of torque. 0-60 will be passed in about 3.8s and top speed increases to 194mph. Therefore AVUS PERFORMANCE modifies the turbo, ECU software and the exhaust system from turbo back with racing cats.
