The second-generation Audi TT RS will go on sale later this month priced from £51,800 in Coupé form and £53,550 as a Roadster.
Performance and 0-62mph time
The TT RS is the first recipient of Audi’s new turbocharged 2.5-litre five-cylinder petrol engine, which has an aluminium block instead of the current motor’s steel block. Using the aluminium block helps to shave 10kg off new TT RS's overall weight compared with its predecessor in fixed-roof form.
The new engine will pack a 395bhp punch and have a claimed 0-62mph time of 3.7sec. This is 0.4sec quicker than the old TT RS Plus with a dual-clutch gearbox and 0.5sec inside the time Porsche quotes for the new 345bhp turbocharged 2.5-litre four-cylinder powered Cayman S.
