On sale in Europe for over a year, the TT-RS will get a power bump from 340-hp to around 360-hp for the U.S. market from the 2.5-liter turbocharged 5-cylinder engine. The increased output is due to some ECU retuning and will also be carried over to Euro-spec models.
So far, only a six-speed manual will be available and the incredible Recaro seats, as expected, will not be offered here.
Sales of the car are set to begin this summer with Audi claiming a starting price in the low $60,000 range. But with just 1,000 units being offered, you may have to already be in line to get one.
