Audi TT RS: Inspiration by a legendary Eighties road-going rally car

IT’S the mightiest TT ever 2.5-litre TFSI. This is the stunning new RS version, which has been inspired by Audi’s legendary Eighties road-going rally car.

It’s a five-cylinder turbocharged engine with 335bhps original Quattro mustered ‘only’ around 200bhp by comparison. Add in sports suspension, quattro four-wheel drive and huge brakes and you’ve got a real recipe for excitement.
Riding on optional 19-inch alloys 
0-62mph time of 4.6 seconds and storming in-gear pace, it feels every bit as quick as a V8-engined R8.
