Audi TT RS preview
Due to bow at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show, the Audi TT RS boosts the performance of the TT S sports coupe to the next level.
Turbocharged 2.5-liter engine
Under the hood, the Audi TT's 2.0-liter turbo-four has been replaced with a 2.5-liter TFSI inline-five in the RS trim level. In this configuration, the RS produces 340 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque. Zero to 60 happens in less than five seconds, as the RS continues onward to an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.
Quattro all-wheel drive
Power is directed to the road through a six-speed manual transmission and Audi's quattro all-wheel drive system. Brakes and suspension packages have also been boosted to match the performance of the engine.
The Audi TT RS features more aggressive front and rear fascias to match the more aggressive power. LED driving lamps and a fixed rear spoiler round out the package.
As with the standard TT, the Audi TT RS is also available with a power retractable soft top.
