Insideline Audi TT-RS 2.5 TFSI test numbers - firstname.lastname@example.org 1/4 mile
Insideline did a quick test video of the USA TT-RS. Our version only comes in 6-speed manual which is a bit of a bummer as the DSG would no doubt put up quicker numbers. Insideline managed to hit 0-60 in 4.3 seconds and the 1/4 mile came in a rather disappointing email@example.com. They were testing on a very hot summer day in Southern California with what appeared to be a VBOX so one should keep that in mind.
Car and Driver hit 12.1@113 with a 0-60 of 3.6
which is a huge difference. That car was a DSG vehicle with launch control however and likely tested in better weather.
The handling numbers are a respectable 68.2 mph in the slalom and .91g on the skidpad. Insideline states that the car feels numb however and is sort of a dull instrument.
AudiBoost really likes the car it just is a bit of a downer that it only comes in the coupe form and only with the 6-Speed in the USA. Still, better than nothing.
