Sportec Crafts a 400-hp Audi TT RS

#Audi, #TTRS

We were slightly taken aback when we learned Audi’s TT RS would be pumping out 335 hp, but apparently, it’s not enough. Swiss tuner Sportech has created a “Stage One” package, which makes the über-TT even more wild.

In stock form, the turbocharged 3.5-liter I-5 in the TT RS cranks out 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. Sportec’s Stage One package, which seems to be little more than some modest reprogramming of the Audi’s engine computer, boosts those figures to 400 hp, and a solid 405 lb-ft of torque at 2650 rpm.

Impressive, and we can’t help but notice both figures edge close to those surrounding the 4.2-liter V-8 found in an R8 4.2 (420 hp, 317 lb-ft @ 6,000 rpm).

The Stage One package runs approximately $1900, but like the TT RS model itself, this Sportec creation will remain exclusive to the European market.
