So what if a lot of people have neglected the Audi TT line ever since the R8 came into the picture. Those who did are missing out on something pretty cool because the TT, especially the top-line TT RS , is still a pocket Hercules in its own right.
Recently, PP-Performance, together with Cam Shaft, unveiled a ridiculous new program for the high-powered TT RS. The whole project features a comprehensive upgrade on the aerodynamics and performance of the car, enough to make you really consider just how fast and powerful the TT RS can become when treated with some affection.
The first thing you’ll notice is the Matte Pearl White finish given to the car with matching black "PP Performance" decals on the side. One look and you immediately know which aftermarket company worked on this bad boy. Far more than just its pretty white face, the TT RS also received a bevy of new carbon-fiber components, including a new front lip, a new hood, new exterior mirrors, a modified diffuser, and a new rear wing. Add all of those to the gloss-black, powder-coated alloy wheels and you have a TT RS with an outward appearance that’s just begging to be teen for a spin.
Speaking of spins, once you step inside the cabin of this little pocket rocket, you’ll immediately understand why this car received such a hellacious performance upgrade. Thanks to a new intercooler, a 200-cell catalytic convertor, a high-flow fuel pump, and a new clutch, the TT RS’ standard 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque numbers are child’s play compared to the new output of 470 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. This new-found power allows the little German sports car to presumably hit 60 mph in just under four seconds to go with a top speed of around 180 mph.
