Audi has just announced that it will begin importing the hottest version of its little sports car, the TT-RS, in the third quarter of next year.
The product move comes after Audi whipped up a Facebook petition page that gathered in excess of 11,500 signatures in just a month’s time.
The move to import the 360-horsepower Porsche Boxster and Mercedes-Benz SLK AMG-fighter isn’t much of a surprise – after all, Audi has been courting the media with test drives for months, and an Audi executive at last week’s launch of the A7 Sportback in Sardinia hinted that a decision was to be revealed in a few days.
No word yet on what pricing or the options list will look like, but only the hard-hatted coupe will make it to these shores – the Roadster will remain forbidden fruit.
