The Audi TT is a compact sports car, built by the Audi division of the Volkswagen Group since 1998. Prior to the 3rd generation, the TT was assembled at the Hungarian factory, and then painted at the German factory. For the 3rd generation, all procedures will be done in the Hungarian factory.
The second generation of the Audi TT, codenamed 8J, was introduced in 2005 as a concept car, as the Audi Shooting Brake concept, which would provide an insight to what a next generation TT would look like. In 2006, the Audi TT was confirmed to continue production, and will be based on a Volkswagen Group A5(PQ35) platform, shared with the 5th generation Volkswagen Golf and 3rd generation Audi A3.
The Audi TT RS is a top performance version of the Audi TT with productions beginning in 2009. The TT RS uses a 2.5L turbocharged inline 5, exclusive to this car and the RS 3. The TT RS was the first Audi 'RS' car to not have its parts assembled at the quattro GmbH factory in Neckarsulm.
The TT RS was only available in quattro AWD platform, and its ride height has been lowered by 10mm. A compact differential was also added to cope with the increased power. Brakes were larger at 370mm in front and 310mm in rear. Fixed rear spoiler is standard and retractional spoiler is optional. The TT RS got another upgrade in 2012 through the TT RS plus package; the plus package increased power from 340 to 355bhp. With the TT RS plus package, Audi claimed that the car can accelerate from 0~100km/h in 4.3s with a manual and 4.1s with the S-tronic transmission option.
Initially only available in EU regions, the TT RS was brought to the United States in 2010 through a petition, which was successful with more than 13000 names recorded.
As of 2016, when CSR Racing 2 was launched, the TT RS was facelifted to the 2017 model but no differences were made in-game, in comparison to the Chevrolet Camaro SS, in which many differences were made after the game was released.
