The introduction of the Audi TT RS has been under consideration for several months, with Audi launching a survey on its Facebook tab to gauge consumer interest. After more than 11500 fans expressed their enthusiasm for the TT RS in just one month, and the American automotive media praised its dynamics, Audi executives concluded the car's time had come.

Audi has yet to determine pricing for the TT RS and will continue to define features and options available to US consumers. Only the coupe version of the TT RS will be available in the US.

The Audi TT RS headed for America will share key performance attributes of the models sold in Europe. The car will come with the same, award-winning 2.5-liter TFSI, five-cylinder engine that generates 360hp. The turbocharged engine also produces an impressive 332 lb-ft of torque. It was developed exclusively for the Audi TT RS and won International Engine of the Year honors this summer.

The 2.5T engine will be paired with a six-speed manual transmission and quattro all-wheel drive to achieve a 0-60 mph time of 4.6 seconds. The lightweight body featuring Audi Space Frame ASF aluminum construction produces a low drag coefficient of 0.32.
