Audi TT RS

German carmaker Audi developed the new Audi TT RS, a model equipped with a 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine with direct gasoline injection capable of producing 340 BHP and 450 Nm of torque. The sporty 5-cylinder gasoline engines have a long legacy at Audi. The most famous is the turbocharged 2.1-liter engine in the Audi Quattro. The 5-cylinder unit combines a turbocharger with FSI direct gasoline injection to elevate the TT RS to a high-performance sports car. The coupe version of the model is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and to reach a limited top speed of 250 km/h. As an option, the carmaker can increase it to 280 km/h. the ultra-powerful 5-cylinder engine is extremely fuel-efficient and it uses 9.2 liters of fuel per 100 km. When an Audi TT RS driver pushes the standard Sport button on the center tunnel, a flap installed in the left exhaust tailpipe renders the exhaust noise even more robust and intense while boosting engine responsiveness. An optional Sport exhaust system is available with sound flap and with matt black tailpipe. To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have provided a new 6-speed manual transmission that permits easy and precise operation thanks to a specially designed shift lever boasting particularly short shift travel. The model features Quattro permanent all-wheel drive as standard equipment. This grants incredible traction, fascinating dynamics and great stability. The precise and responsive steering, the neutrality at the cornering limit and a lot more represent the thrilling power of the engine. The electromechanical steering is highly efficient and the power steering adjusts the speed of the vehicle. The 4-link rear suspension, which handles longitudinal and lateral forces separately, plays a crucial role. Audi offers Audi TT RS customers a complex range of optional equipment.
