The TTRS has a high level of specification as standard and includes features for which Audi Sport is renowned:
Racing car inspiration
Controls and display in the new TT RS are focused completely on the driver. All information is displayed as standard on the digital Audi virtual cockpit with 12.3-inch screen. The driver can choose from three views, including a special RS screen that highlights the rev counter and provides information on tyre pressure, torque and g force.
For the first time in the RS portfolio, the RS sport leather steering wheel with shift paddles has two operating satellite buttons for turning the engine on and off, as well as the Audi drive select driving dynamics system,in addition to multifunction buttons. The driver can influence the exhaust flap control using the sound button on the centre console.
Voted ‘Engine of the Year’ six times in a row, the 2.5 TFSI engine is now lighter than ever before, has reduced internal friction and increased power delivery.These improvements increase the engine’s performance by 17 per cent, while its capacity remains unchanged at 2,480cc.
It is more powerful too, producing 400PS with a maximum torque of 480 Nm between 1,700 and 5,850 rpm. This ensures fantastic pulling power, which accompanies its unmistakable growling sound. The TT RS Coupé accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds, the Roadster in 3.9 seconds, with a top speed of up to 174mph.
Matrix OLED Headlights
For the first time in a production Audi, Matrix OLED (organic light emitting diode) rear lights will be offered on the new TT RS. These emit an extremely homogeneous, high-contrast light. The light can be continuously dimmed, it does not cast any shadows and does not require any reflectors – this makes the OLEDs efficient, light and visually impressive.
Each rear light contains four wafer-thin units which become smaller from the inside out. The biggest bears the TT logo and the four Audi rings. The TT RS has LED rear lights and LED headlights as standard. Alternatively, the latter are available as intelligently controlled Matrix LED units.
