AVUS PERFORMANCE Tunes the Audi TT RS to 460HP – Dubbed the “Ur Quattro”
Just a couple of weeks ago we introduced the AVUS Performance Nissan GT-R Black Edition. Now we have a new matte-black high-performance Audi TT-RS from the same German tuning shop which appears to be on a tear of late. Dubbed the Ur Quattro, Avus is providing a complete tuning package for this diminutive sports car which includes a serious bump in power output via a revised ECU, new turbocharger and high-performance exhaust system with racing catalysts.
These upgrades allow the Avus Performance TT-RS to produce 460bhp from the 2.5-iter five-cylinder engine. With 472 lb-ft of torque, 0-60 mph can be reached in just 3.8 seconds from a complete stop. And top speed is an amazing 194 mph. This is a significant increase over the 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque available from the stock Audi TT-RS, which, incidentally, is also electronically limited to 155 mph.
The Avus Ur Quattro also comes with an adjustable coilover suspension (€1299), a matte black vinyl wrap (€1999) and glossy black 20-inch Sportec Mono wheels wrapped in 255/30/20 Hankook S1 Evo tires. Obviously, Avus Performance has jumped on the matte black band wagon but they also offer the car in other colors as well. Staying the course is highly recommended as the Audi TT-RS might be in danger of looking a bit dainty in primary colors.
This is a great tuning package for the Audi TT-RS at a very reasonable price point (around $14k + the cost of engine mods). The criticism of the Audi TT RS has been that even though Quattro GmbH performed their usual top-notch work, the car is rather boring. Power delivery is actually sooo linear and the engine note sooo steady that there is no rush of excitement. The standard TT-RS performns 0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds which can hardly be considered slow, but the AVUS Performance Ur Quattro should instill some exhilaration in a car that is actually too “efficient.” With some raw horsepower, a growling exhuast and an adjustable suspension system, this package should quiet any critics.
