ABT Shows Off 500 PS Supercar-Slaying TT RS-R On A Mountain Road

The Audi TT RS is one of the fastest non-supercars on the market right now, so it’s a very appropriate candidate for some mods.

ABT managed to extract an extra 100PS (99hp) and 120Nm (89lb-ft) out of its turbocharged 2.5-liter five-pot engine, for an impressive total of 500PS (493hp) and 570Nm (420lb-ft) of torque.

The 0-62mph (0-100 km/h) sprint now comes in just 3.4 seconds, entering officially into supercar territory, while top speed is now 186mph (300km/h). Remember, this is an Audi TT we’re talking about.

The rest of the TT RS-R was also upgraded with a new carbon-fiber body kit that includes a front spoiler, grille frame, side skirt add-ons with side blades and a multi-part rear skirt. A set of 20-inch alloys complete the exterior revisions.

The chassis has been updated with new, lower springs and stiffer anti-roll bars for more grip and less roll on the corners. ABT produced just 50 TT RS-Rs all in all, and this one belongs to Daniel Abt who also happens to race in Formula E.

Get ready for some lovely five-cylinder music on the video linked below.
