2012 Audi TT-RS Will Likely Get 360 Horsepower

As if news of the impending launch of the Audi TT-RS wasn’t enough, North American consumers will be treated to an extra 20 horsepower, according to Car and Driver magazine.

C/D spoke to Audi representatives at the Chicago Auto Show, where they were informed that Audi is pushing for a total output of 360 horsepower in North America, rather than Europe’s 340 horsepower. We won’t get the awesome Recaro sport seats available in Europe, and the only transmission choice is a 6-speed manual. But we’re hardly complaining.

A sports exhaust and a rear-wing delete option will also be available, and Audi claims that the car will start in the low $60,000 range.

    What a gorgeous vehicle. My dad has an Audi and loves it. I’m debating getting one myself, but am currently undecided. Does anyone know if Audi repair is more expensive than BMW repair?

    RIght now I own both a ’99 E36 BMW 328is with 110kms and a ’04 B6 Audi A4 with 180kms, I can tell you without a doubt that my BMW costs more to maintain and has seen a significant amount more major repairs, including a $3,000 head gasket (ouch). This could be because the BMW is older but even shop wages are higher at the Bimmer group apposed to Vdub.
