Beijing Debuts – 2017 Audi TT RS Coupe and Roadster – 3.7s via 400HP!

A fantastic range-topper for the new TT twins: the RS!

Power is up by 60Hp over the previous TT RS via a new turbo five-cylinder engine. Ultra-short new ratios for the launch gears of  the DSG twin-clutch auto rocket the new TT RS Coupe to 62-mph in just 3.7-seconds. The ragtop is not far behind.

Various trim options for the deep lower splitter, all-new bumpers and grilles front and rear make unique statements.  The black is dark and menacing, while the silver effect (as shown on the red Coupe below) is just as modern and mean… but a bit brighter.  Whatever the finish, the quattro letters in the front are a contrast color — and will be quite effective at clearing the fast lanes in front of you!

Stronger than ever: new Audi TT RS Coupé and new Audi TT RS Roadster

  • Impressive: new aluminum five-cylinder engine with 294 kW (400 hp)
  • Available for the first time in a series-production Audi: OLED rear lights
  • Controls like a racing car: numerous functions on the RS sport steering wheel

The sound: inimitable five-cylinder.

The performance: tremendous at 294 kW (400 hp).

The traction: inexhaustible thanks to quattro drive.

As the sporty spearhead of the TT series, the new TT RS* is to be marketed under the Audi Sport label. At the Beijing Motor Show, Audi is presenting its Coupé and its Roadster for the first time to the world’s public. Sales in Europe will begin in fall 2016.
