Like the European-spec car, the U.S.-spec TT RS will be powered by a 2.5-liter I-5 that makes 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque mated to a six-speed manual transmission and Audi's famous quattro all-wheel drive system. Audi says that the car weighs about 3200 pounds and can sprint from 0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds.
The TT RS goes on sale in the third quarter of this year, with pricing and options to be announced at a later date. Don't hold your breath for the arrival of the TT RS Roadster, as the arrival of the Coupe on the west side of the Atlantic is almost a miracle itself.
