Although Audi has already launched their latest version of the TT model – and it looks awesome – there are still people modifying older version, for funzies and because it still looks cool. HPerformance took it upon themselves to improve and show off an Audi TT-RS, two of them actually, with each one making use of 500 HP and featuring other upgrades as well. The impressive power boost was possible due to installation of an upgraded turbocharger, a specially developed exhaust system, HJS racing cats, optimized intake manifold and an aluminum inter-cooler together with bespoke ignition plugs. That’s a lot of work!

So, two Audi TT models, modified. One of them boasts a matte black paint, while the other one was covered in a glossy white finish. Both rides feature a five-cylinder 2.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine under the bonnet, which after some serious fiddling around, now develops 500 HP (368 kW) and 523 lb-ft (710 Nm) of torque. These Audi cars also share the Bilstein coil-overs, H&R stabilizer and a carbon ceramic braking system from the Audi R8 GT. If you’re feeling a bit down, HPerformance has already announced work on an engine upgrade, which will provide you with to 700 HP (515 kW) to play with. The white Audi was also fitted with an upgraded clutch with a single mass flywheel, while the black TT RS features a step 3 DSG adaptation. Pick one!
