Audi RS Boss Stephan Reil Presents The New 2012 TT RS: Video

Follow Viknesh

We’ve already brought you our own driving impressions of the new 2012 Audi TT RS, the first of the German automaker’s hotted-up performance models to grace our shores since the RS4 bowed out of the market back in 2008, but now here’s a video of Audi RS boss Stephan Reil touting the benefits of his new baby.

Reil is actually the head of development of Audi’s quattro GmbH, the department responsible for the automaker’s high-performance vehicles like the TT RS, as well as the R8 GT supercar and some racing models.

If you're not up to speed on the TT RS, you ought to be. This 340 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder variant of the TT delivers 4.6-second 0-60 mph times, thanks in part to its quattro all-wheel drive.

It will set you back about $56,850 and is only available with a six-speed manual here in the U.S. Overseas versions are offered with a seven-speed S tronic dual clutch transmission.

Now bring on the 2012 Audi RS5.

  1. As the first purchaser in the U.S. of the TT-RS, my race team will be building the first TT-RS race car for the World Challenge series. We are partnering with The Arc (thearc.org) to help raise awareness for people with intellectual disabilities. One of our new crew members has such a disability, and we want to show how useful and productive he can be on a professional race team.
    The TT-RS is a fantastic driving machine, and I can't wait to get it on the track in World Challenge. If you want more info, email me at istook@airmail.net
