Drive Wire: Audi Shows Off The New TT RS In Beijing
News out of the Beijing Auto Show, Audi has unveiled the new TT RS and it looks just as wild as the last model. The newest RS has an all-aluminum turbo five-cylinder good for 400 horses and, we assume, an amazing exhaust note. Unfortunately, there’s no manual transmission, but the 7-speed dual-clutch is good for zero to 60 in 3.7 seconds, so that’s some consolation. The TT RS also gets high-downforce bodywork and magnetic ride dampers, so it should handle more or less magically. Also encouraging? Audi says the TT is just the first entry in an overall expansion of the legendary RS line, meaning more top-performance models are in the pipeline. Definitely something to look forward to.
