On August 9, Audi launched a petition on Facebook to decide whether or not they should bring the Audi TT-RS to the United States. They gathered 11,500+ signatures in just one month, including many likely buyers.
The Germans have now confirmed that the TT-RS will be arriving in the US in the third quarter of 2011. Johan de Nysschen, President, Audi of America stated:
With performance and agility rooted in Audi motorsports success, the TT RS is truly an emotional sports car. That emotion became abundantly clear as we explored interest across the country.
