  • The sound: inimitable five-cylinder. The performance: tremendous at kW ( hp). The traction: inexhaustible thanks to quattro drive. As the sporty.

    Watch out Audi R8, the most powerful Audi TT RS ever made is hot on your tail.

    Yes, the new bhp (or a nice round PS) Audi TT RS is the top TT. And for £ 51,, it's frankly almost impossible to go faster for less.

Our test car had larger seven-spoke inch optional alloy wheels plus the Audi magnetic ride system part of the Dynamic Package featuring the same 10mm drop as the standard car, but with the addition of adaptable dampers.

    Audi TT RS Coupé review review | Autocar

    As sports car priorities go, the need for an evocative engine note has seemingly been pushed firmly into the back seat. Downsized motors like that found in the Porsche Cayman offer more punch and lower running costs than before, but frequently fail to deliver on the soul-stirring noise front. This new Audi TT RS , with its five-pot motor full of rally heritage and off-beat warble, promised to be a beacon of hope for the aurally deprived when the covers were pulled off in April The top-spec TT is more efficient than before and extremely fast — only a few tenths of a second behind an R8 from a standstill, thanks to a claimed class-leading power-to-weight ratio of bhp per tonne.

    It might only have one cylinder more than the Porsche but the firing order gives it an eccentric rhythm, manifesting itself in an attention-seeking burble at low-speed, and a hollow, metallic howl further up the rev range.

    The engine really is the centrepiece here, fizzing with more character and menace than a John Le Carre novel. The flipside is lb ft between to rpm, which means the TT RS rarely feels short of punch. Wind the motor out in manual mode and coloured segments of the rev counter move from green, to amber and then red to tell you to pull the right shift paddle — adding to the sense of theatre.

    Top speed is electronically restricted to mph, but tick the Dynamic Package Plus box and this is lifted to a spectacular mph, plus you get a sports exhaust system to help amplify that baritone soundtrack. Bringing you down from maximum velocity are mm brake discs up front with eight-piston calipers, and smaller mm monoblocs out back. Carbon ceramics are optional and advised for track use.

    Head into a corner and the RS will respond quickly, thanks to fast steering and less weight over the front wheels. The best approach, in order to make swift process, is to brake late and hard and then power out.

    Alas, this does mean that you can feel all sorts of all-wheel drive trickery tying itself up underneath you, trying to sort everything out. Audi Drive Select makes an appearance with Comfort, Auto, Dynamic and Individual modes, altering the steering, throttle, exhaust noise and quattro all-wheel drive. Our test car had larger seven-spoke inch optional alloy wheels plus the Audi magnetic ride system part of the Dynamic Package featuring the same 10mm drop as the standard car, but with the addition of adaptable dampers.

    On the smooth Spanish test roads roads the ride, specially in Comfort mode, was smooth enough for everyday use. On the road where the desire to get creative with slip angles is lessened, the TT RS is an absolute blast point-to-point. The latter can be upgraded to matrix units which have a highly adjustable pattern, theoretically allowing you to drive around with the high beam on and not blind other drivers. You also get RS sports seats in nappa leather with adjustable bolsters and Alcantara on the wheel, plus new satellite buttons on the wheel for starting the engine and adjusting the Audi Drive Select system.

    RS specific exterior parts include larger vents for that air-hungry motor, plus a honeycomb-patterned front grille. The most surprising element is still the boot, a yawning chasm in sports car terms that serves up masses of room for luggage. That big wing wobbles quite a bit when you slam it, though.

    It has more power, more cylinders and is quicker away from the lights. Quattro all-wheel drive also makes it a genuine all-seasons car, too.
