Audi's littlest car goes for big power in the all-new 2017 TT RS (pictures)

Packing a powerful five-cylinder engine and loads of aggressive aerodynamic bits, the TT RS isn't exactly a cute little hairdresser's whip.

Power comes by way of a 2.5-liter, five-cylinder engine, which puts out 400 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque.

The rear taillights are OLED units with a "3D" design, the first time these have been used in a production Audi vehicle.

As with other TT models, the TT RS features Audi's Virtual Cockpit, which replaces the standard infotainment screen with a 12.3-inch screen where the gauges normally rest.

A special RS-only infotainment screen gives buyers access to tire pressure readouts, instant torque figures and g-forces.

The hands-free system's microphones are embedded in the seatbelts in the Roadster, so you can still make calls with the top down.
