The 2018 Audi TT RS 2.5T at H.J. Pfaff Audi
Whenever Audi slaps an “RS” badge on one of its cars, it’s cause for celebration. It means the model in question is going to be imbued with the highest performance-boosting tech the company can muster. With that in mind, fans were elated when Audi’s tiny two-door coupe, the TT, got an RS upgrade that included a new five-cylinder engine. In this article by H.J. Pfaff Audi in Newmarket, we will talk about the 2018 Audi TT RS 2.5T. Read on for more information.
The 2018 TT RS comes saddled with a new 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine that produces 400 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. Power makes its way to all four wheels through Audi’s seven-speed S Tronic dual-clutch transmission.
Trim Levels and Features
Though it retains the same sharp exterior as the current-gen TT and TT S, the TT RS does have some distinguishing features. Starting at the front, the TT gains the RS honeycomb grille, signature matte aluminum accents, and a front fascia that sets it apart even further. Around back, it’s hard to miss the fixed spoiler, but you might not immediately notice the OLED taillights with dynamic turn signals. Further down, the aluminum-accented rear diffuser and oval exhaust outlets hammer home the RS attitude.
The Audi TT is built on the Volkswagen group’s MQB platform, the same system that underpins the Audi A3 and the current VW Golf. MacPherson struts in the front and a four link rear suspension is partnered with either Audi’s magnetic ride suspension, which can switch between a smooth or firm ride, or a fixed sport suspension. It’s about here where it starts to dawn on you that the TT RS is like a mini R8 V10, but with a front-mounted engine.
Up front, the sport seats are firm enough to hold you in place, but are hardly back-breaking. With eight-way power adjustments, it’s easy to secure your ideal driving position quickly. They can rock a serious look, too, thanks to red contrast diamond stitching throughout the Nappa leather. Even the seatbelts can be adorned with piping along the edges, making you look like the mayor of Speedy-Town when strapped across your chest.
The leather and sport steering wheel mirrors that you’d find in the Audi R8 V10, with integrated virtual cockpit controls, ignition, and drive select buttons. The lack of any additional pop-up MMI screen hammers home the driver focus of the cabin’s design. For either making the most of the space provided or an attempt at reducing clutter, the HVAC controls have been spread out with functions located within the hubs of each air vent.
