Audi has introduced the S-Line Competition package for 2013. Intended for buyers who want more aggressive looks and a bit more handling prowess from the base TT, it adds a more aggressive body kit, xenon headlights, a 10 mm reduction in ride height and black wheels.
Iconic styling; quattro all-wheel-drive; new high-performance model
Underneath its iconic easily recognizable exterior, the TT is based on Audi's sturdy passenger car platform with quattro all-wheel-drive, making it a superb all-weather handler, yet it maintains good all around performance, with the turbocharged 2.0L engine pushing it to 60 mph in just 5.7 seconds--faster than both the Mercedes-Benz SLK 300 and the BMW Z4. The upgraded TT RS has a 360 horsepower 5-cylinder engine that offers intense performance in the same compact package. The new model's base price of under $60,000 makes it a great performance value.
