Audi Limited Edition TT-RS Heads for Australian Motor Show

The official unveiling of the Audi Limited Edition TT-RS is likely at the Australian International Motor Show. Audi had made about 45 units of this automobile for Australian customers.

The limited version would equips 7-speed S-tronic transmission and also claims to have made many value additions  to the car.

The seven-speed dual clutch transmission will allow the Audi TT-RS to race to a speed from zero to 100 km/h in just about 4.3 seconds. If you didn’t know, this is 0.3 seconds faster than the 6-speed model. For the highway speeds, the TT-RS has seventh gear designed as a high-geared overdrive that cuts down on fuel consumption by just reducing engine speed.

The S-tronic transmission is integrated with a built-in launch control function. The company has limited the peak speed electronically to 250 km/h.

A look at the power department would bring to light that it has been left unaltered. The 2.5-litre five-cylinder TFSI engine returns 250 kW (340 PS / 335 bhp) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.
