The Germans from Audi released details on the TT-RS Limited Edition S which is scheduled to debut at the Australian International Motor Show. The new limited edition will be manufactured in only 45 units and bring in addition the seven-speed S tronic transmission for the same price as the model equipped with the manual gearbox.
As you probably know, the 2010 Audi TT-RS is already offered in Europe with the seven-speed S tronic but this version will enter the Australian market only after its debut scheduled to take place at the upcoming Australian International Motor Show which will be held in Melbourne.
Therefore, if you want to get the Audi TT-RS with the S tronic transmission at no extra cost then you have to hurry and order one of these limited units specially designed for Australia. The Audi TT-RS Limited Edition packs the same 2.5-liter TFSI engine able to deliver 335 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque. The five-cylinder unit fitted with the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4,3 seconds and returns an average fuel consumption of 8,5 liters/100 km.
Comparing to the six-speed transmission, the seven-speed S tronic gearbox is able to improve the sprint time by 0,3 seconds while the model issues 197 g/km of CO2. The top speed remains electronically limited at 250 km/h while the launch control function of the S tronic transmission is able to provide minimum wheel spin and also increased performance.
According to the official details, the seventh gear is configured as a high-geared overdrive which reduces the speed on highway which makes the model use less fuel. The Limited Edition package also includes an exterior metallic paint, 19-inch alloy wheels with titanium finish, adaptive headlights, LED interior lighting but also leather upholstery and BOSE sound system.
“This state-of-the-art transmission adds another driving dimension to Audi’s purist driving machine, with lightning-fast gear changes and a level of efficiency that is pioneering in its class. Shifts are completed within just a few hundredths of a second, and are silky smooth and incredibly comfortable: there is no perceptible interruption in the flow of power,” says Audi.
