I haven't bought the ATR yet. However i'm wondering what the TOGA  buttom does, because I haven't seen it in the real ATR cockpit and the plane have no auto throttle either.

Please tell me!

TOGA mode is an F/D mpde only. When TOGA is pushed the A/p is disengaged automatically, and the FD shows the preset go around heading and safe pitch attitude for a certain flap position.
The reason why you are not seeing it on real ones is that because it's in the power levers.
HEre's a  pic of the power levers, eventhough it's  an ATR 72-200.

It disengages the autopilot and activates the Go Around mode of the Flight Director. It does not affect the engines in any way.
