It is now clear: The 400-hp five-cylinder can be ordered from June 22nd, and the first cars will be at dealerships this summer. The prices have already been determined, the coupé costs 66,400 euros, the roadster 69,200 euros.

Just in time for the start of the order process, the newly developed aluminum five-cylinder received the “Engine of the Year” award, a prize with which a jury honors engines every year. Audi received the award for the 13th time. Head of Development Peter Mertens said: 'The award confirms that efficiency, good performance and great sound can go hand in hand.'

The 2.5- Liter turbo five-cylinder was further developed in many areas. Among other things, the block is now made of aluminum and reduces the weight by 18 kg. In total, the engine weight was reduced by 26 kg. Result: The power increases by 17% to 400 hp. The maximum torque of 480 Nm is available from 1,700 revolutions. Coupled with the traction advantage of the Quattro drive with a central multi-plate clutch and wheel-selective torque control and in conjunction with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission and Launch Control, the Audi TT RS Coupé sprints to 100 km /h in 3.7 seconds, the TT RS Roadster takes two tenths of a second longer. The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km /h. For 1,500 euros, Audi has set the limit to 280 km /h. The driver can use the Drive Select system to influence the drive system and other components such as steering, transmission, engine characteristics and exhaust flaps. There are four modes to choose from.

Of course, the TT as the RS can also be a little thicker visually. Large air inlets, a single-frame grill with a newly designed honeycomb grille and Quattro lettering, redesigned side skirts, a fixed rear wing and two large, oval exhaust tailpipes are intended to bring out the power of the TT RS Coupé and the TT RS Roadster. The optional matt aluminum and gloss black optics packages set accents on the single frame, on the blade, on the RS rear wing and on the diffuser insert.

In the cockpit, the TT RS models proliferate as standard with the virtual cockpit, which is enhanced by a shift light has been. In addition to multifunction buttons, the RS sport leather steering wheel including shift paddles has, for the first time, two operating satellites for starting and stopping the engine as well as the driving dynamics system. The driver can influence the exhaust flap control via the standard sound button on the center console. A sports exhaust system with dark tailpipe trims costs 850 euros extra.
