The Gyor plant in Hungary has been doing a great job building Audis over the years, and the company decided to entrust them with the build of a precision-machined high performance car, the TT RS.
First kicking off production back in 1993, the Gyor facilities have the A3 Sedan/Cabriolet and TT Coupe/Roadster coming out of the production lines, with 160,206 cars and 2,022,520 engines built by 11,411 employees over the course of last year. Since August Audi has also decided to bring here the TT RS in both coupe and roadster form and now we’re being taken behind the scenes for a quick view of the production process. The TT RS marks several premieres for Audi – it’s the first model to deploy the latest installment of the turbocharged, inline-five 2.5-liter engine, and it’s the brand’s first production car to use the fancy OLED taillights.
Packing 400 horsepower (294 kilowatts) and 354 pound-feet (480 Newton-meters) of torque, Audi’s well known coupe is now the fastest and most powerful road-going TT, sprinting to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.7 seconds on its way to a maximum speed of 174 mph (280 km/h) when opting for the extra available Dynamic Package Plus. The TT RS costs £51,800 OTR in the UK when selecting the coupe, while at home in Germany it kicks off at €66,400.
