2017 Audi TT RS Coupe and Roadster Pack 400hpApril 25th, 2016
Audi has unveiled the 2017 Audi TT RS Coupe and TT RS Roadster. Both cars get a new aluminum 5-cylinder engine making 400hp, 60HP more than the outgoing model.
Audi says that the new RS can sprint from 0-62.1 mph in 3.7 seconds for the coupe and 3.9 seconds for the Roadster. Torque output from the turbo 5-cylinder is 354 lb-ft.
Power goes to the ground via a 7-speed S tronic transmission that uses a multi-plate clutch and offers four driving modes. Both cars have Audi quattro all-wheel drive to help keep the car planted.
In front, the RS cars get ventilated and perforated discs with 19 or 20-inch wheels available. Carbon-fiber ceramic disc brakes are also available as an upgrade. Audi also offers adaptive magnetic dampers.
Unlike the standard TT, the TT RS has a fixed rear wing, and for the first time in a production Audi, the cars get Matrix LED rear lights as an option.
Both the TT RS Coupe and Roadster will launch in Europe in fall 2016. The Coupe will start at 66,400 euros (~$75,000 USD) with the Roadster starting at 69,200 euros (~$78,000 USD). No word on whether the RS will make its way to the US at some point.
