Audi is sending the most powerful TT ever into the competitive field. Its newly developed five-cylinder engine delivers 400 hp – accompanied by an unmistakable sound. Driving pleasure guaranteed!
The sound: inimitable five-cylinder The output: tremendous at 294 kW (400 hp). The traction: inexhaustible thanks to quattro drive. The new TT RS is a powerhouse – in the closed and the open version.
Audi TT RS Coupé and Audi TT RS Roadster - At a glance
“Audi enjoyed racing success in the 1980s with the combination of a five-cylinder engine and quattro drive,” said Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of quattro GmbH. “In the new TT RS, we are transferring this potent technology package to the present.
The seven-speed S tronic with lightning-fast shifting is standard in the new Audi TT RS models. The dual-clutch transmission impresses with high efficiency and a large spread – its lower gears are short, and the seventh gear has a long transmission ratio to reduce consumption.
The new TT RS uses quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The electro-hydraulic multi-plate clutch is compact and lightweight – its position at the end of the propeller shaft benefits the axle load distribution. The new quattro driving dynamics software continually computes the torque that is distributed to the rear wheels.
With their composite construction concept, the bodies of both RS models represent a new evolutionary stage of the Audi Space Frame (ASF).
The new TT RS Coupé and the new TT RS Roadster also display their inner strengths on the outside. Three figures summarize the proportions: 4.19 m (13.7 ft) long, 1.83 m (6 ft) wide, but only 1.34 m (4.4 ft) high.
The taut exterior design of the new TT RS models is continued into the interior. The cockpit with its slim instrument panel has clean lines and is clearly laid out. The wide center console is inclined toward the driver.
The infotainment system in the new TT RS is state of the art. Its menu structures are oriented on those of the latest smartphones. Hierarchies are flat; frequently used services can be reached in just a few steps. Drivers can control all important functions without having to take their hands off the steering wheel – just like in a race car.
The top infotainment offering is MMI navigation plus with MMI touch. The high-end system is a versatile media center.
The new TT RS models will be marketed under the label Audi Sport. Prices for the Coupé start at 66,400 euros, and the Roadster is listed at 69,200 euros.
The 2.5 liter TFSI engine in the new TT RS is continuing a great tradition: Audi used five-cylinder engines with great success in rally racing back in the 1980s. Today they provide for an emotional driving experience in production vehicles.
