Vehicle Overview

After a brief hiatus, Audi's high-performance RS line is back in the U.S. in the form of the four-seat TT RS coupe. It's powered by a 360-horsepower inline-five-cylinder engine that teams with a six-speed manual transmission, and Audi cites a zero-to-60-mph acceleration time of just 4.1 seconds. Competitors include the BMW M3, Porsche Cayman and Lotus Exige.

The TT RS rings in at 3,306 pounds. Its aggressively styled exterior features a fixed rear wing spoiler, dual oval exhaust outlets, 19-inch aluminum wheels, a black-gloss diamond-pattern grille, large front air inlets and prominent side sills. Nineteen-inch gloss-black wheels with red matte accents are optional for red and black cars. The headlights include LED daytime running lights. A power-retractable spoiler is available in place of the fixed wing.

Inside, the TT RS has a thicker three-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel, brushed aluminum accents, RS-specific door handles and aluminum doorsills with the RS logo. Power-adjustable front sport seats are finished in Silk Nappa leather, and Alcantara upholstery is available. A Bose premium stereo and Audi's MMI navigation system are available.

Under the Hood
The TT RS features Audi's turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-five-cylinder engine, which produces 360 hp and 343 pounds-feet of torque. Audi claims the TT RS' top speed is 174 mph. Only offered with a six-speed manual transmission, the TT RS can sprint from zero to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds, according to Audi.

Like other Audis, the TT RS features Quattro all-wheel drive. In addition to the chassis being lowered 10 millimeters, Audi's magnetic ride system is standard. It includes a Sport mode that stiffens the overall ride, enhances throttle response and opens flaps in the exhaust system for a more pronounced sound. A more aggressive sport exhaust with matte black exhaust tips is available.

Standard safety features include four-wheel-disc antilock brakes, front-seat side-impact airbags with head extensions, front knee airbags and an electronic stability system. Rear parking sensors are optional.
