Audi unceremoniously gave the awesome TT-RS sports car its U.S. debut at the Chicago Auto Show earlier this week and has now provided more details on the version of the car we’ll get.

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.
