2019 Audi TT RS is a sleeper of the highest order

first_img When is it coming?The latest TT RS will hit Canadian showrooms this June. RELATED TAGSAudiTT RSCoupeAWD / 4x4GasLuxuryPerformanceNew YorkLuxury VehiclesNew VehiclesNew York Auto ShowPerformance Vehiclesall-wheel drivegasoline What is it?The 2019 Audi TT RS has been reworked to give it a sharper look and more road presence — this is, after all, one of the best sleeper rides on the road. Up front, the TT RS sports a matte black grille with the Quattro logo embellished at the bottom of the bold opening in titanium lettering. Below that is the wide lip spoiler, flanked by yet more black grilles — these improve the cooling for the turbocharger’s intercoolers. Around back is a fixed spoiler and optional OLED taillights accentuate the look. Capping things off are three vibrant new colours —Turbo Blue, Tango Red Metallic and Kyalami Green.Check out all our latest Auto Show CoverageWhy does it matter?The motive power is one of the things Audi did not change. The 2.5L turbocharged five-cylinder is as legendary as the Ur-quattro, and so is the turbo boost pressure that gives it its oomph — 34 psi, to be exact. This gives the driver access to 394 horsepower and 354 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,700 rpm. It drives all four wheels through Audi’s quattro system and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The combination means the TT RS blasts off the line and warps from zero to 100 km/h in a breathtaking 3.7 seconds. Try hiding the smile it promises to induce. Should you buy it?While the individual changes are modest in nature, the fact the TT RS lives on in the age of fun suppression — escalating emissions will slowly kill the really fun cars — is welcome and then some. The TT RS remains one of the world’s best-kept secrets! Yes, having two seats means it is a selfish car, but that’s exactly the point.RELATED Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.22019 Audi TT RSDerek McNaughton, Driving Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.22019 Audi TT RSDerek McNaughton, Driving Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.22019 Audi TT RSDerek McNaughton, Driving Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.22019 Audi TT RSDerek McNaughton, Driving Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.22019 Audi TT RSDerek McNaughton, Driving Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.22019 Audi TT RSDerek McNaughton, Drivingcenter_img We encourage all readers to share their views on our articles using Facebook commenting Visit our FAQ page for more information.
