The Audi TT RS is a fast car right out of the box. With a 2.5 liter turbocharged five-cylinder, the TT RS makes 400 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque from the factory, allowing it to rocket to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 155 mph. However, what if you wanted to go much, much faster?
This highly tuned Audi TT RS make an astonishing 1,300 horsepower and is capable of genuine hypercar acceleration. While its 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time is 3.3 seconds, which is a bit slower than most supercars, it’s only that slow due to lack of traction, as it spins all four wheels well past that speed.
After it grips and goes, it’s able to reach 124 mph (200 km/h) in just 6.71 seconds. It also runs the quarter mile in 9.72 seconds, which is genuine hypercar territory. Most impressively, though, it that it reaches 203 mph (328 km/h) in its half-mile run.
That sort of speed is reserved for genuine supercars and hypercars. Sure, this tuned TT RS is more powerful than most of those sorts of cars but it’s also not inherently setup for 200 mph. The TT RS is still based on the MQB chassis, with its front-wheel drive bias, short wheel base and a suspension geometry and design that’s in no way designed to go that fast. So it’s mightily impressive that this car was able to do it.
It’s also a testament to just how capable the Audi TT RS engine is. We’re not sure what’s been done to it, and we’d imagine that it has some new internals as well as a turbocharger the size of a small baby, but it’s still incredible.
Now, if only it could launch better, this Audi TT RS would be capable of Bugatti/Tesla/Lucid/Koenigsegg-slaying acceleration figures.
