Audi has announced a Limited Edition TT-RS will make its debut at the Australian International Motor Show.

With only 45 units being made for Australia the TT RS features the 7-speed S tronic transmission in addition to $8,460 of additional equipment at no extra cost (see press release below for full list).

Already seen in Europe, the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission allows the TT-RS Limited Edition to sprint from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.3 seconds - 0.3 seconds faster than the 6-speed model. The seventh gear is configured as a high-geared overdrive reducing engine speed at highway speeds, allowing the TT RS to consume an average of 8.5l/100km using the European combined cycle, and emit 197 g/km of CO2.

Also aiding in its performance, the S tronic transmission comes with a built-in launch control function. Maximum power and minimum wheel spin through the quattrro all-wheel-drive system is the result. Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h.

Power output for the TT-RS Limited Edition is unchanged with the 2.5-litre five-cylinder TFSI engine producing 250 kW (340 PS / 335 bhp) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.

Prices are as follows:
Audi TT RS 7-speed S tronic Limited Edition: $139,900
Audi TT RS 7-Speed S tronic: $139,900
Audi TT RS 6-speed manual: $139,900
