I previously mentioned that the Audi TT S-line was as far as you’re going to get with a TT that looks fast as well as goes fast, if Audi does not release an Audi TT RS. I was wrong. This is Abt Sportsline’s take on the Audi TT – tuned up to 3 different variants – the Audi TT-R, the Audi TT-Sport and the Audi TT-iS. More details after the jump.
The Audi TT-iS is the baseline tune-up model, based on the Audi TT 2.0 TFSI. Engine management has been modified to bump up power from 200hp in stock form to 240hp of max power. I say max power because power scales up depending on what kind of fuel you feed it with – the best grade fuel gives you 240hp, but if you feed it crap, the car retains it’s 200 horse stock power rating. That’s what the iS in it’s name stands for – intelligent sport.
Next up is the Audi TT-Sport, which has two variants – one based on the 2.0 TFSI and another one based on the 3.2 V6. The model with the 2.0 TFSI engine is tuned up to 270hp. As for the 3.2 litre V6, while the standard TT 3.2 is normally aspirated, Abt Sportsline has forced inducted the engine through the means of supercharging, bringing power up to 310 horsepower from the stock 250. The top of the range tune-up is the Abt TT-R, which brings brings the supercharged 3.2 V6’s power up to 355 horsepower.
Of course, the tune-up package includes other enhancements like a new Abt bodykit with skirts all round, a fixed rear wing, quad tailpipe exhausts, and 19 inch alloy wheels wrapped with 255/35/ZR19 tyres.
