The eagerly anticipated Audi TT RS is on its way to North America and U.S pricing has finally been announced. When it hits dealers later this year it will be priced from $56,850.

This may seem like an extraordinary amount compared to the base model selling for $38,300 but the RS promises enough performance to support the premium. The TT RS will crank out 360-hp and 343 lb-ft of torque from a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine. The Audi will be offered exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission coupled to the quattro all-wheel drive system. The TT RS can go from 0-62 mph in 4.1 seconds, sporting bigger air intakes, RS oval exhaust pipes and unique 19-inch rims. The Audi will hit dealer lots during the third quarter and will be available as either a coupe or convertible.
