Introduction

What Car? says...

We like the Audi TT. So much so, in fact, that it's our current favourite coupé. However, this isn’t one of the cheaper versions sitting lower down the range, or even the sportier TT S. No, this is the top dog with the big guns: the range-topping Audi TT RS.

It's available as either a hardtop (Coupé) or in open-top (Roadster) form, which means it offers the TT's usual choice of practicality or al fresco thrills. Both versions have the same 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder petrol engine, which pumps out – wait for it – a mighty 395bhp. Yes, you did read that correctly, and it's all sent manageably to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. That gives it some seriously impressive performance figures, as well as ease of use.

The TT RS certainly has its closest rivals, the Porsche 718 Cayman S and Alpine A110, licked for straight-line pace, then. But great sports cars need to be more than just quick in straight line; they must be properly good fun through the corners, too. So read on over the next few pages for our in-depth impressions of the TT RS, and find out how it compares with the competition.

And as always, don’t even consider parting with any cash until you’ve checked how much you could save on the brochure price. Click here for our latest deals on all new cars, including sports cars as diverse as the regular Audi TT and the Audi R8.
