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.

AUDI TT RS Black & White Edition by PP-Performance & Cam Shaft
As generally known, joint projects are actually full trendy. The issuing from the collaboration of two enterprises synergy effect has therefor very positive consequences. That shows the presented in the following Audi TT RS – which is by its nature already the strongest and fastest Audi TT sports car model – in an impressing way. The PP-PERFORMANCE GmbH from Weissbach, Germany, has performed the car tuning, meanwhile the CAM SHAFT company from Kempen on the Lower Rhine gave the TT finally its ultimate dress uniform.
In the Baden-Wuerttemberg Weissbach, the crew around CEO Jimmy PELKA has submitted the Audi TT RS to rather ample transformations. In these frames, the car was fitted besides intercooler by down pipe, 200 cells metal cat, a bigger fuel pump and sintered metal clutch. The materialized modifications warrant for at least 470 HP of power (compared to 340 serial HP) and 650 Nm of max. torque, because of what there have been installed ceramic brakes. Furthermore, there are front lip, bonnet, outer mirrors, rear bonnets, wings and diffusor made of carbon, which is indeed an ultra light material, but also highly strong. So much concerning the tuning.
Regarding the dress uniform, CAM SHAFT has grasped into the magic box once more to wrap the Audi into glossy black foiling, combined with mat pearl white, whereas doors and sill, of course, are wrapped in mat black. Hereto matching, the AG Felgenveredelung, rim ennobling company from Krefeld, Germany, has powder coated the rims in glossy black, while lathing the outer surfaces in high polish. Finally, the oeuvre was sealed by glossy clear varnish.
The bottom line of this joint project is: The Kempen CAM SHAFT company is advancing to a PP performance center for the NRW area. This is not at least due to the fact that the demand for car wrapping and car tuning is rising more than ever. Especially in fields of exclusive sports and luxury cars or SUV, the costumers include more and more full packages into their wish lists, such as for design, rims, chassis, exhaust and, before all, power tuning packages. All this is perfect for a partnership of two companies, who meanwhile in their branches are renowned as top addresses worldwide. Additionally, already now several common operations of CAM SHAFT are planned together with PP-Performance. The starting shot for the first operation will be fired already at the end of October in Abu Dhabi.
