The production of the 2016 Audi TT RS has started at Audi's facility in Gyor, Hungary and soon enough, Audi fans can get their hands on this spec performance car. The new generation TT RS will be available this fall and will come in two variants - the Coupe priced at $82,000 and the Roadsters priced at $85,000.
How It's Made
To celebrate and promote the new Audi TT RS, Audi released a video on how the TT RS was being made at the two-million square-meter facility in Gyor. In the video, one can see that no expenses were spared to ensure that each model of the TT RS will be quality at its best.
The video surprisingly doesn't include flashy graphics and in your face elements like other car promotional videos, but rather a raw production shot that shows a combination or machines and expert craftsmen in building the TT RS. While machines do some of the harder work, like joining the powertrain and chassis, employees carry out tedious tasks such as polishing each TT RS before it leaves the factory.
As buyers, people would always want to see the final product only, and that the hard work that goes into manufacturing, producing and finishing the car is rarely appreciated. Audi TT RS production video is perfect in every sense. Check it out below.
