“There’s something about engines that calms me down” is what Jesse said in the 2001 mega hit, The Fast and The Furious. And that’s how this video will make you feel exactly, as it covers the Audi TT RS build, in the Győr, Hungary Audi factory. The soothing drilling, ratcheting, and robotic sounds of the TT RS being assembled is the most calming sensation you’ll ever feel about the two-door.
Outside of the zen factory, the Audi TT RS is a 400 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque machine pumped out of a 2.5 liter five cylinder engine. Weighing in at just a little bit below 3,200 pounds, the seven speed dual clutched, sprightly sports car is capable of clocking in a 0-60 time of just 3.5 seconds.
Audi claims “Truth In Engineering” in their products and you get to see a good dose of that engineering from the manufacturing perspective. It’s pretty clear impressive the entire process really is. From the way major assemblies gets placed via massive jigs, to the way the chassis gets married to the frame, and to the way fender gaps are measured with preset shims, the manufacturing process is breathtaking, and will surely calm you down no matter who you are.
It’s almost as awesome as the way a Porsche gets made.
