The `S' emblem that spells extraordinary performance in the Audi range graces the TT for the first time this month in a new, even more focused version of the iconic sports car debuting at the North American International Auto Show (January 19-27). The TTS earns its esteemed badge through the adoption of a specially developed, 272hp Turbo FSI petrol engine complemented by state-of-the-art chassis technology.

Extensive revisions to the acclaimed 2.0T and directly fuel injected petrol engine that already powers the TT have enabled its power to be boosted from 200hp to 272hp and its torque from 280Nm to 350Nm, available between 2,500 and 5,000rpm. Linked to six-speed, close ratio manual transmission the enhanced unit slingshots the TTS Coup from rest to 62mph in just 5.2 seconds, and on the Autobahn is only curtailed by its electronic limiter at 155mph. With the optional S tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission acceleration times are reduced by a further two-tenths of a second in both the Coup and Roadster.In addition to the evocative `S' insignia, the most extreme production TT to date highlights its capabilities from the front through newly designed bi-xenon headlamps incorporating trademark Audi LED strip daytime running lights, a redesigned front apron incorporating larger air intakes and aluminium-look door mirror housings. The profile view is enhanced by deeper side skirts and exclusive 18-inch alloy wheels, which can be swapped for 19-inch alternatives at extra cost, while at the rear a revised rear bumper with - for the first time in a TT - four tailpipes protruding from its extended diffuser subtly conveys the newcomer's extra performance potential.

Inside, deep-set Alcantara and leather combination sports seats, exclusive `S' instruments with white needles, metal pedals and special aluminium trim elements enhance the already very highly regarded sports interior.
