Audi has unveiled the 2017 TT RS Coupe and Roadster at the Beijing Motor Show, which are both powered by a 400-hp turbocharged five-cylinder engine.
The new 2.5L engine generates 60 more horsepower than the previous model and a nice 354 lb-ft. of torque are sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed S tronic and Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive system. The five-cylinder is mated to a The Coupe takes 3.7 seconds to sprint from 0 to 62 mph and the Roadster takes 3.9 seconds, which makes this TT RS the fastest yet. If you want even more power, there is a rumor about a TT RS Plus version.
Other upgrades over the standard TT, include a revised suspension that lowers the TT RS by 10mm and new 19-inch wheels or 20-inch forged lightweight wheels. Carbon-fiber ceramic discs are also available. The TT RS is also the first production model to get Matrix OLED technology in the rear lights as an option. The OLED lights emit an extremely homogeneous, high-contrast light that can be continuously dimmed, but at the same time do not cast any shadows or require any reflectors.
The TT RS will stand out from the standard TT thanks to its large air inlets, a newly designed honeycomb grille and quattro logo, a fixed rear wing and two large, oval exhaust tailpipes.
