The interior also features good comfort and firmness. The carbon-effect fabric over part of the steering wheel and on the center console is supreme textile artistry, and the craftsman-style red leather shift lever is a pleasant bauble.

North America can only get everything but the TT-R engine tune. If engine mods were available, we'd be staring at an approximate $50,000 bump over the standard 3.2 TT. As is, the most damage available through Abt USA, while replicating most of the TT-R experience, is just under $25,000.
