Audi TT RS launched in US

The Audi TT RS was not planed to go for sale in US but with the petition on Facebook the car is now available in the US.  Once again turning to Facebook, we came across these photos of a TT RS variant we’ll never see in our driveway, regardless of how often we click the “Like” button: a DTM-inspired racer that’s set to debut in the VLN Endurance series.
Audi has teamed with Raeder Motorsports and will run the car during the last two rounds of the Endurance Championship, held at the Nürburgring. The production version of the Audi TT RS is a blast to drive, so we can only imagine the thrills the competition-spec car provides.
