BMW 1M vs. Audi TT-RS

Car & Driver is improving!!—-good on them to test the 2 cars we have all been waiting to see a test of against each other—the wicked Audi TT-RS and the majestic BMW 1M. I love both of these cars—kind of torn because of my ‘Audiphile’ nature telling me to prefer the TT-RS, however deep somewhere in my head it’s the 1M that captures my imagination massively.   I do despise the looks of the TT-RS, as i think they pretty much ruined the 2nd generation of the TT—a car that deserved to evolve better from the timless MK1.  To me, the 1M’s styling makes it one of the best looking cars of my lifetime.  Imaginative, toy-like, and just aggressive.

The Infiniti G37 IPL is also in this comparison, however doesn’t really match up to the other 2 in terms of size, style, or performance.  The TT-RS posts a 0-60 time of 3.6 seconds (!!!!!) and beats the other two in lap times and most performance criteria.  No surprise there, but by price, i have to say the BMW 1M is such a great car starting at $47k.  I don’t think the owners of either of these 2 monsters will be dissappointed….i think the Porsche Cayman R would have been a good 3rd car in this comparison.  Meanwhile….please excuse me while i continue to have wet dreams about that orange 1M.

foto of the day. TT-RS official debut in the USA!

the Audi TT-RS has just made its official debut at the Chicago Auto Show as an official Audi USA product for this market.  And what a car……360hp ugraded 2.5L 5-cylinder which howls like nothing else on the market at the moment….i know, because i saw one in person last summer at VW Waterfest.   As an Audi fan, i’m always listening to some of the Audi corporate news feeds, and apparently the US market will ONLY get a manual transmission; however they are saying that the DSG version of the car does 0-60 in 3.6 seconds.  3.6 seconds!!!! BRUTAL!  and with style that only the TT can have…..price? $60k.  superb.

IEDEI meets the Audi TT-RS.

Found out some info on the TT-RS:

$65-68k, 300-350 cars coming to the US market, all coupes, all manual transmission (unofficial estimates, taken from a couple sources IEDEI has spoken with)

The sound of the 2.5L turbo 5 is amazing.  I saw this car today at Waterfest (VW/Audi gathering in held in New Jersey every year).  It was brought there by the Fourtitude guys and was provided to them by Audi.  It is the only TT-RS in the USA at the moment.  I didn’t get any chance to drive it or drive in it…however the exhaust note is simply animal…love it.

some more pics (sorry about the crappy quality…forgot my camera and took cell phone pics!):
