The top dog of the TT range gets another upgrade. It now has a new aluminum five-cylinder engine that weighs 26kg less than the predecessor, which allows it to launch into the 400hp range. That is 60hp more than the previous model. It hits 100km/h in just 3.7 seconds, which is just two-tenths slower than the R8 V10 supercar in terms of acceleration.
The Audi 2.5 litre five-cylinder engine has won the International Engine of Year Award six times in a row and this streak is set to prolong with the new improvement. Inside, the steering wheel resembles the R8 and it has a large 12.3-inch virtual cockpit that displays the speed, RPM, torque and G-forces. The primarily dark coloured interior accompanied by Nappa leather calfskin RS seats showcases Audi’s astute ability to mesh classic and sporty elements together. Like in sport, to get the top dog, it requires top dollars, with this beast priced at $145,000.
