It’s back ladies and gentlemen, and the past 20 years have certainly been kind.Â Not since the UR cars of the ’90s has Audi used the turbocharged inline 5 to power its performance line and oh has it been missed.Â Based loosly on the VAG 2.5l found in the base model Golf or Jetta, the similarities end basically at the cast iron block.
For the TTRS, Audi had added a turbocharger, TSFI injection and a 10.1-to-1 compression ratio all adding up to an impressive 360 bhp, 343 lb/ftÂ of torque. Mated to the 6 speed manual gearbox, and Quattro AWD, the TTRS will go 0-60 in the 4 second range, and top out atÂ 174mph.Â All in, the TTRS puts down numbers that give the R8 a run for its money…at almost half the price.
This practically brand new TTRS for sale in Fort Worth, Texas is a black beauty worth taking a look at.

This TTRS is a far cry from your average TT.Â Often viewed as a squished VW beetle, the TT is a very polarizing car. As a sports coupe, it’s adequate, but not the top of its class. As a cool little runabout it’s a great, usable little car.Â The TTRS, blows all previous perceptions out of the water, making this an amazing performer and diffrentiating itself from the beetleÂ with a sledge hammer of an engine.
This TTRS is probably one of the more desirable color combos and as the pictures show, it’s flawless.Â My biggest issue with this car is that the dealer is looking for MSRP on this car.Â If this was a dealer demo with 1,100 miles, sure no problem, MSRP is completely appropriate.Â The fact is, this is a previously titled used car and therefore should be priced accordingly. As a non-Audi dealership, this car isn’t even eligible for a CPO warranty.Â If this car was for sale around $60K I think it would be reasonable, but at $64K, I’d rather buy a brand new one, and get all of the perks that come with it.
