Audi’s first-ever RS model for the TT range has been launched in Australia.
Offering 250kW of grin-inducing power, and 450Nm of neck-snapping torque, the all new TT RS is propelled by a completely new five-cylinder powerhouse, which has its roots in Audi’s highly-successful motorsport heritage.
Pricing for this sporty top-end model has been confirmed at $133,700* for the Coupe model with a 6-speed manual transmission.
The company expects to sell around 80 units per year in Australia, according to managing director, Joerg Hofmann.
“Our RS models, while niche, are always very popular for buyers wanting the ultimate in performance. The TT RS offers superb, pure sportscar styling with exceptional grunt. It is without doubt – a very fun car to drive,” Mr Hofmann said.
“However, the appeal of the TT RS doesn’t end there. The new generation TT is larger, longer and lighter than its predecessor, and even with its superb performance, the TT RS still manages to offer efficient driving and low CO2. These traits will certainly appeal to Australian buyers.”
