2012 Audi TT RS starting price set at $56,850Fri, 08 Jul 2011 00:00:00 -0700
If you have your heart set on the top-shelf Audi TT RS, prepare to pony up $56,850 plus destination and what we’d assume are plenty of options to put one in the garage.
Worth it? You decide: The highest-performance TT will get a 2.5-liter turbo five with 360 hp and 343 lb-ft of torque, with the twist available from just about off-idle to 5,400 rpm. Audi magnetic ride, the company’s aluminum-and-steel body construction and a host of RS-specific interior and exterior upgrades round out the package.
If it sounds like fun, you don’t have long to save your pennies: The TT RS will be on sale later this summer.
