The 600hp TT S | Reader's Car of the Week

When a tuning project goes awry, there's only one thing to do... tune it more

By Jack Mansfield / Saturday, February 15, 2020

We've all been there. You go out and buy a TT S Roadster only to find yourself quickly getting bored of it - well, aptly named PHer ttsroadster has at least. A Stage 2 upgrade not long after purchase saw the all-wheel drive bottle rocket up to 400hp, allowing it to hit 62mph in just 3.6 seconds and deliver the sort of performance which ought to sate even the most restless of speed demons.

Commensurate improvements to the braking and handling soon followed, as did a 25mm drop in ride height. "After that" he says, "the plan was to just enjoy the car". Or at least it was, until "the unimaginable happened". One blown engine and two weeks later, he was left with a choice, to repair the car as cheaply as possible and move it along, or go all in.

Which is how we get to the tale of a PHer who now finds himself in pursuit of a 600bhp TT S Roadster. We'll leave it to him to pick up the story from here, but needless to say there seems to be plenty of life, and power, left in this thread yet.
