It packs over 1,100 horsepower
The performance motoring world has been revolutionized by modern turbo technology and has enabled sports cars to be tuned beyond what we ever thought possible. One such car is the supercar-slaying Audi TT RS which features five cylinders, seven gears, and a ton of attitude. These cars have been tuned from mild street performers to ballistic tire shredders and everything in between, but the following video reveals the world's fastest TT RS in action at the Top Gear test track in the UK. And the best part of it all is that this dedicated superbike murdered is owned by a 78-year old psychopath.
In stock form, the Audi TT RS is powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine that produces 394 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed DCT transmission. The zero to sixty sprint takes 3.6 seconds, and top speed is limited to 155 mph. The world's fastest TT RS runs an incredibly high 55.1 psi of boost pressure, and it is estimated to make north of 1,100 hp, and according to Arthur, the owner, this car can be pushed to around 60 psi if need be.
At the end of the video, the Audi makes an attempt at the world record for the fastest 100-200 kph sprint. The first run reveals a time of only 3.2 seconds, making it the world's fastest TT RS in that regard. The second fastest TT RS on record took 3.3 seconds to do the same run. The owner is already talking about getting a bigger turbo for a speculated power increase of around 200 hp. Arthur still can't believe how fast this machine is: "When I'm sitting in this car, and someone pulls up next to me, I feel young again" he says. How could you not?
