600PS Audi TT RS Would Give The Lauded R8 Supercar A Hard Time

Audi’s 2.5-liter five-banger that powers the RS3 and TT RS has an big tuning potential, to the point that it can become even more powerful as the 5.2-liter V10 found in the R8.

In the latest TT RS, it puts out 400 PS (394 hp / 294 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque straight from the factory.

The Coupe version of the TT RS goes to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds and maxes out at 250 km/h (155 mph). Opt for the Dynamics Plus package, and the V-max increases to 280 km/h (174 mph).

So, how does one make the TT RS a supercar killer? The exampled featured here running down the drag strip has welcomed from some tuned engine internals, and probably a new turbocharger. The car is the work of Turbo Engineers, who didn’t reveal many details, and has 600 PS (592 hp / 442 kW) available on tap.

This makes it 60 PS (59 hp / 44 kW) more powerful than the RWD R8 supercar, and only 10 PS (10 hp / 7 kW) down on the R8 V10 Plus. Yep, some times good things do come in small packaged, don’t they?

    Ok, so the Dynamics Plus package adds what its like additional 30 KPH to the max speed, but how much faster it is 0-100?
