Audi TT RS performance parts
Even more distinctive, sportier and faster: The new Audi Sport performance parts take dynamic handling to a wholly new level for the Audi R8 sports car and the Audi TT. The retrofit range will be available in dealers in late summer 2017 and features numerous components.
“With the Audi Sport Performance Parts we are tapping into a new business segment,” says Stephan Winkelmann, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH. “Our wealth of experience garnered over many years of building sports cars is incorporated into every component we offer. Along with our expertise from motor racing, which is still the best test bed for volume production.”
As part of the sales launch of the retrofit range in late summer 2017, the product lineup will initially be available in Germany and other markets for the current Audi R8 and Audi TT models (TT, TTS and TT RS) only. Additional model series will follow gradually. The Audi Sport performance parts cover four areas to date: suspension, exhaust system, exterior and interior.
For suspension requirements, the range covers sport brake linings, which are more powerful and less prone to fading than standard brake linings. Linings are available for steel discs and for the optional ceramic brakes. Their carrying plates are painted in fluorescent red and are made out of ultralight titanium on the Audi R8, making this model a kilogram (2.2 lb) lighter overall.
Steel front brake discs with multiple bolt mountings are available for the Audi TT RS. Various brake cooling kits can be obtained for the Audi TT, TTS and TT RS. They help the compact athlete achieve even better braking performance.
