The TT RS sees Audi’s nimble coupé given high-performance RS tuning.
The third generation will feature a sophisticated four-wheel drive system and use the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox that is currently found in the RS 3 Sportback.
The 2.5-litre, five-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine will develop just under 400bhp for pulse-quickening performance.
Audi’s well known commitment to safety and reliability means the new TT RS is likely to perform very well in this area.
The previous TT RS featured all of the expected active and passive safety systems including ESP stability control and high-performance brakes.
The existing RS range is consistent with this equipment level.
Many also including Anti-Slip Regulation and an Electronic Differential Lock to give the driver superior control in any situation.
Buyers can also expect a full set of airbags along with Isofix child seat anchor points.
The distinctive silhouette of the Audi TT will be retained, making the TT RS an instantly recognisable member of this prestigious family.
Its RS status will be signalled through an athletic set of styling touches.
A large rear spoiler generates downforce to enhance the handling and deep air intakes aerate the engine and give the front end an assertive expression.
Finishing touches such as oval exhaust pipes, RS brake callipers and vented and drilled brakes leave you in no doubt as to this car’s performance credentials.
Inside, the cabin will feature the same motorsport-inspired design cues as the rest of the RS range.
A flat-bottomed, leather-trimmed steering wheel and an RS instrument panel place you at the heart of the action. Aluminium pedals and carbon inlays also add to the sense of excitement.
The power from the five-cylinder engine will be transferred to the road by an advanced all-wheel-drive system.
This lends a lively and dynamic feel and ensures you always feel close to the road. The TT RS sits at the pinnacle of the TT range and will help you create your ideal driving environment.
The interior is equipped with technology including climate control, ambient interior lighting, heated seats and advanced infotainment features.
