The Audi TT RS coupe is a car with an unmistakable line and a true supercar performance. It is the most powerful TT ever produced by the German car manufacturer and represents the latest restyling in chronological order compared to the update that took place in 2017.
This is a purchase that preconfigures an important expense, but on the other hand, the car continues to represent something unique in its reference segment. In the new version, Audi has refined and updated its exterior design, but has also produced an important update to the interior, adding digital equipment designed specifically for the RS series.
Audi TT RS coupé: dimensions and design
From the point of view of the external dimensions, the TT RS coupé is 4.2 meters long and 1.83 meters wide, for a height of 1.34 meters. The measures are obviously those typical of a sports car, while the design is honed according to the canons of the RS models. On the front, the octagonal single-frame grille with a black honeycomb structure houses the license plate in the center, while on the sides there are LED headlights and two large air intakes.
Compared to the previous model, the lines of the side are even sharper, while the exterior mirrors can be customized with the color of the bodywork, or through an aluminum or black / carbon look. The large wheel arches feature alloy wheels with a sporty design (customizable on request). Finally, in the rear part of the car stand out the horizontal headlights typical of the Audi design (on request in Matrix OLED), which are integrated with the trunk, equipped with a sports spoiler.
The choice of colors applicable to the bodywork is vast, starting from the three innovations designed specifically for this model. These are the Verde Kyalami, the Orange Pulse and the Blu Turbo. If you are ready to shell out a surcharge, then there is a high possibility of customizing the car’s exterior design, starting with the aesthetic kits in matt aluminum or glossy black.
400 horsepower engine
Regarding the car’s engine, for the Model Year 2019 of the TT RS coupe Audi has provided a 2.5 TFSI cylinder engine equipped with 400 HP. The combined gearbox is a seven-speed S Tronic, equipped with a double clutch and sports levers on the steering wheel. The unit is able to guarantee real supercar performance. The maximum speed is limited to 250 kilometers per hour and expandable (on request and for a fee) up to 280 km / h. Even from a standstill, the performance comes from a top-of-the-range sports car: the TT RS coupé is, in fact, able to reach 100 kilometers per hour in just 3.4 seconds.
Audi TT RS coupé: interior and available set-ups
The interior of the Audi TT RS is dynamic, sporty and enveloping, but at the same time it expresses elegance and all the comfort deriving from the use of quality materials. Obviously, given the type of vehicle, the passenger compartment shows sportiness, starting from the steering wheel characterized by the flat lower part and useful levers to change gear, up to the aluminum inserts placed on the dashboard and on the central tunnel.
Among the additional packages the MMI Plus navigation system is provided as standard (equipped with pressure control and touch rotation placed near the gear lever). The Audi virtual cockpit is also available as standard in the RS version. In this way, Audi guarantees the presence of the LCD screen behind the steering wheel, so as to provide important information during driving and to allow the driver to always have everything under control. For those who want to customize the car there are also various options and packages for both the exterior and interior. Think about, for example, the Audi exclusive design.
Price and final considerations
As a true top of the range, the purchase price of the Audi TT RS coupé is also top notch. It starts from over 78 thousand euros for the basic version (already complete with everything needed). We quickly reach around 90 thousand euros as we grow with the choice of customizations and options.
