Audi's range-topping TT-RS is now available to order with VW Group's seven-speed DSG
8 October 2010

Audi's hottest TT model, the 335bhp RS, is now offered with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

Partly thanks to the addition of launch control, S tronic-equipped TT RS coupes will accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.3sec. This compares with 4.6sec for the manual. Top speed is limited to 155mph, but can be removed as an option.

Coupled to the S-tronic, the TT RS coupe now has combined fuel economy of 27.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 197g/km. Power comes from a turbocharged 2.5-litre, five-cylinder engine that produces 335bhp and 332lb ft of torque.

The S tronic gearbox is available on both coupe and roadster variants and is available to order now. Deliveries of the TT RS with S tronic will commence in Europe this month.

No mention of the cost. With this gearbox and a few more options it's going to be £50k+ which is a lot for a TT !!

Audi should stop being Skintflints and find a way to fit the gearbox into the Audi R8 - One of the biggest mistakes they made was lumbering the R8 with an out-of-date auto-manual gearbox as an option.

The TTRS is very expensive though - something BMW will capitalise on when they launch the 1-series M.

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again

    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
