Army-ready appearance and upgraded performance push this TT to the recruiting station.
Sincethe unveiling of the latest Audi TT, the sports car's appearancehas become far more pleasing to the eye, while its performance – especially inthe TTS version – has certainly improved over previous generations. But forHG-Motorsports, the current TTS functions as a blank canvas for the firm's latest creation. And while its performance upgrades are quite modest, theHG-Motorsports TTS is nothing of the sort. With 26 extra horsepower, the manicmilitary look is now complemented by 336 hp and 314 lb-ft of torque.
But the bulk of the work has occurred on the car's exterior, which wasgiven a new carbon-fiber air box with a Pipercross filter. It also received an EGO-X stainlesssteel exhaust system by Bull-X, a KW coil-over suspension and 20-inch Schmidtalloy wheels wrapped in Hankook S1 Evo tires. But despite all these goodies, nothing is more in-your-face apparent than its completely insane wrap, a camouflage print of red, black andseveral shades of gray. We doubt this would be up to military spec of any armyon this planet, but is it enough to make you lust for what is, after all, justan Audi TT?
