Does 510 HP Make This Tuned Audi TT RS Plus A Supercar?

Coupe

That’s only 30-hp less than a V10 Audi R8.

The Audi TT RSPlus gives drivers the same supercar feeling as the Audi R8, but doesn’t havethe negative drawbacks of the more powerful, expensive and bigger supercar. However, there is one major difference between the TT RS and the R8—performance. To fill thegap between the two, HPerformance enlisted the aid of software specialists MTRPerformance and gave the TT RS a newfound sense of insanity. The ClubSport TTRShas received a HPerformance Stage 5 for a total of 510 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque.

For thosekeeping track, that’s an increase of 150 hp and 167 lb-ft over the OEMspecs. The incredible amount of power can be attributed to a new HPXT530turbocharger, high-pressure pump, custom charge air cooler and a sports exhaustsystem. The extra power means that the ClubSport TTRS is only 30 hp away fromthe mighty R8, so can it be considered a supercar? While that’s up for debate,the cost to transform a stock TT RS Plus is approximately $56,000. And that doesn’tinclude the price of the vehicle. For that much money, we’d rather have a R8,but blowing another vehicle’s doors off with this sleeper would be extremelyfun, as well.
