Pricing for the all-new Audi TT RS has been announced. It will be the most powerful TT yet.
Available as Coupe or a Roadster, it will be priced from £51,800 and £53,550 for the Roadster.
The TT RS will come with a five-cylinder engine that produces 400PS. A top speed of 174mph is achievable with a power-to-weight of 277PS per ton and 0-62mph time of 3.7 seconds.
This new model is lighter than its predecessor by 26kg which is helped by a new aluminium crankcase.
It will come standard with a seven-speed S Tronic transmission, which can be altered to match the driver’s mood with the choice of Comfort, Auto, Dynamic and Individual modes. These also change the throttle, steering, exhaust flaps and the Quattro AWD system.
Quattro all wheel drive makes use of a multi-plate clutch-based system which distributes power between the axles to help handling.
There’s a few clever bits to make the new TT RS more aerodynamic which includes a fixed rear wing which is supported with two thin double struts.
It will also see the introduction of Matrix OLED lighting technology, the first time on an Audi.
There will be a choice of 9 colours including the gorgeous Nardo Grey and Catalunya Red metallics.
Interior comes with Audi virtual cockpit which is set in s 12.3″ high definition screen. The screen also shows Audi Connect which provides Google Earth, Google Street View, travel information, news and weather updates.
The all-new Audi TT RS can be ordered in the UK from late this month.
