Audi is celebrating 40 years of Quattro with a limited-to-40 production run of a very special TT RS. This model features the same five-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 395 BHP and 354 lb-ft. of torque, but it’s been tweaked to now max out at 174 MPH.

It’ll do the 0-62 MPH sprint in 3.7 seconds as standard, which is assisted thanks to a complex all-wheel-drive system that’s developed by the Quattro division. Furthermore, a new torque vectoring system allows for inside-wheel corner braking, making for sharper and more efficient turns when on the race track.

A slightly more aggressive aerodynamic body kit has been added to the celebratory Audi TT RS, which has also been painted in “Alpine White” as a homage to the Quattro cars of the 1980s. Additionally, the new set of white rims and the decals that have been added around the car pay their respects to Walter Röhrl’s 1987 Pikes Peak-winning Quattro S1.

In true homage to Quattro’s legacy, this TT RS sports the moniker down the door sills just like original cars in the ’80s did. Inside, customers can opt for carbon fiber components to reduce the weight of the car even more, and will find a new interior lined in black Alcantara.

The Audi TT RS “40 Years of Quattro” is set to release only in Germany and will be limited to just 40 units, each costing €114,040 EUR (approx. $135,000 USD). Take a closer look at the car above.
