Audi TT RS Plus

As incredible as it may seem that Audi could make the TT RS any hotter, the 2012 RS Plus adds an unprecedented dimension of silliness. It's as fast from 0-62mph as an R8 - just 4.1 seconds - while the top speed is a frankly befuddling 174mph. That's 174mph in an Audi TT. Think about that.
That's a limited speed too, so you could turn the wick up even higher if you were so inclined. Complementing the thrust from the 360bhp, turbocharged, 2.5-litre five-pot is Quattro all-wheel drive, a six-speed manual 'box (or seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission with launch control, if you want), adaptive damping, brakes like dinner plates and some truly beautiful seats. It's also quite a lot more economical than the old TT RS, if you're bothered about that kind of thing.
Prices are north of £50k, which is a lot for a TT. But not a lot for a 174mph bruiser...
