With the up and coming release of the 2013 Audi TT RS Plus, car lovers know by now that their driving experience will never be the same. Early this year, we have had a glimpse of what the new Audi TT RS Plus has to offer: dynamics, power, and speed.
The new Audi TT RS Plus is a small sports car that comes in Roadster and Coupe versions. Its five-cylinder turbocharged engine that is capable of power boost delivers 360 horsepower, enough power to make the car reach a maximum speed of 174 mph (280 km/h).
The power comes from its 2.5 L TFSI engine, a turbocharged direct injection unit that brings 20 more horsepower than the previous or current model. In line with it, the new unit delivers a torque of 343 ft-lb, 11 ft-lbs more powerful than the previous or current model.
Prospective owners can choose between a 7-speed S-tronic that makes gear shifting as fast as lightning or the six speed manual transmission. A launch control function is integrated into the dual clutch transmission thus optimizing acceleration from a standing start.
The Coupe and the Roadster can run from 0 to 60 mph in a period of 4 seconds. As for fuel consumption, both the Coupe and Roadster averages 27 mpg. Both statistics are for the Audi TT RS Plus with S-tronic transmission.
To balance the performance of the car, a high performance brake system is introduced. In the front axle, cross drilled discs combined with four-piston fixed calipers are installed. Nineteen inch cast wheels are beautifully fitted to the car. Customers have the option to use the Audi magnetic system drive or the adaptive damping system.
Having the power and the ultra-sporty look, the 2013 Audi TT RS Plus will surely give a new driving experience a driver has never known before.
