Audi's Baby R8, The TT RS, Sounds Just Like A Supercar

Video

That five-cylinder exhaust note is something special.

As soon as Audi revealed the newest TT RS, we knew it was going to be something special. The TT RS is a limited production model, and some markets, like the UK, have already sold out of them while other markets, like the US, won't start taking deliveries for a little while. US consumers may not get their hands on this awesome model until later this year, but deliveries have already begun for residents of Europe. YouTube channel Automann-TV has taken delivery of a lovely Catalonia Red test car that really stands out in a good way.

The previous generation TT RS could be as fast as a supercar with the proper tuning, and the new model looks even better. Not only does it look like a baby-R8, it really does sound like a supercar with its 2.5-liter 400 hp five-cylinder turbo engine.

We also get to see the TT RS engage launch control to see how fast this car really is. In the video, the car hits 62 mph in 3.4 seconds and 124 mph in 11.8 seconds. It appears that the Audi is actually quicker in a straight line than the far more expensive Porsche 911 Carrera S. This car is really supercar-fast.
