The First Generation Audi TT Or The Type 8n Was Launched In The September Of 1998 And Up Until This Point The Audi Brand Was Considered As One Of The Most Conservative Car Makes, However This All New Model Was To Change The Thoughts Of Buyers Around The Globe, With This Sexy New Model Being Seen As The Ultimate Hot Property And A Motoring Must Have. The Innovative Design Was Modern And Radical, With The First TT Offering To Be Nominated For Numerous Awards To Include The 2000 North American Car Of The Year Award And The Highly Acclaimed Car And Driver Magazine's Ten Best List Of Vehicles For The Year 2000. This Brave Step From Audi Was To Be One Of Their Greatest Success Stories Of All Time And Gave Porsche With Their Boxster Model And Mercedes Benz With Their SLK A Real Headache As New Buyers Wanted To Buy Into This Fresh Stylish Reliable Small Sports Car. In 2006 The German Car Maker Gave Us The Mark II Version, Which Still Offered Buyers A Perfect Small Sized Sports Car, But Now With Greater More Up To Date Technology, An All New Aluminium Body And In 2009 At The Geneva Auto Came The All Mighty TT RS Model, Which Was The Highest Grade Available. The TT RS Featured An All New 2.5 Litre Transverse Five Cylinder Turbo Charged Engine, Which Generated A Rather Healthy 340 BHP Capable Of Accelerating From 0-62 MPH In 4.7 Seconds And A Limited Top Speed Of 155 MPH.
In 2012, the TT RS plus was launched. It featured the uprated version of the TT RS' engine that had originally been developed for the RS Q3 concept car; this version of the engine produces 360 BHP at 5500 rpm, and 343 lb⋅ft (465 N⋅m) of torque at 1650 rpm. As a result of this power increase, Audi claimed that the 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time had decreased to 4.3 seconds for the manual version, and 4.1 seconds for the S-tronic version. In addition to this, Audi raised the top speed limiter, with the TT RS plus being restricted to 174 mph (280 km/h)
