Audi has announced more powerful TT RS Plus, coming in both Coupe and Roadster versions, and now featuring a 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbo good for 360 horsepower and 343 lb-ft of torque. Customers will have the option of going with a manual six-speed transmission or the seven-speed S tronic. The Coupe with S tronic transmission can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds, with the manual lagging just behind at 4.3 seconds. The roadster splits the difference at 4.2 seconds (manual: 4.4 seconds). Both models are electronically limited to a top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph). The exterior of the TT-RS Plus is distinguished with a single-frame radiator grille in polished anthracite with trim frame finished with a matte aluminum look. The side mirrors are outfitted with carbon fiber reinforced polymer, while the Audi RS sport exhaust has black oval tailpipe trims. The 19-inch wheels are painted black with red accent on the rim flanges, and a large fixed rear wing increases downforce at the back of the car.

The Audi TT-RS Plus is expected to launch in April following its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Check out multiple images in the gallery following the click. via: WCF
