Audi TTRS Coming to U.S. Thanks to Facebook
HERNDON, VA - Sometimes, the best way to determine an outcome is to put it to a vote. Just ask the Audi TTRS when it hits our shores in mid-2011.
"Last year Audi unveiled the RS version of its TT model at the Geneva auto show, but as with many European high-performance unveilings, the question of a U.S. import version was in doubt," explains CNET. "To settle the question, Audi posted a survey on its Facebook page, and got 11,500 yeas for the Audi TT RS in a month. With this result, Audi says it will bring the TT RS to the U.S. by the third quarter of 2011, enough time in Internet terms for people to have moved on from car fandom to the latest Lady Gaga video."
Jalopnik notes that the U.S.-bound TTRS has "no prices set yet, and only the hardtop aluminum und shteel version makes the trip."
"Audi is warning American customers that a limited number of cars will be imported, asking them to offer their contact info so that they can receive further information when this becomes available," writes Autoevolution.
