Highly-Tuned, 600HP Audi TT RS Is Truly A 10-Second Car

The Audi TT RS isn’t the typical car you would expect to see at the drag strip in the United States. However, this particular example is one of the best out there.

With an estimated 600 horsepower produced at the crank, and 530 hp at the wheels, this AWD TT RS isn’t as powerful as, say, a stock Dodge Demon or Hellcat, but it has an important ace up its sleeve: it can actually put its power down and run the quarter mile in less than 10 seconds. And it did so, in front of the camera, in 9.76 seconds at 139 miles per hour (224 km/h).

Under ideal conditions and with a trained driver behind the wheel, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, which is roughly 240 hp more powerful than this TT RS, can run the quarter mile in 9.65 seconds. However, laying down that massive output is very tricky, which is why the Demon was often beaten into submission by less powerful vehicles. We remember one particular car that needed 9.83 seconds to complete the 1/4-mile sprint, and that called for a celebration.

Another Demon, which came straight from the depths of hell with in excess of 1,000 horsepower, managed to score 9.34 seconds at the end of the 1/4-mile run.

Shows that sometimes there is such a thing as too much power, and that a more compact car with a lower output can be faster if it can find traction. Which, of course, is the case with ths TT RS, and in the following video its owner talks about the mods that made it such a fast machine.
