Our overall rating:
We like the Audi TT. So much so, in fact, that it's our current Coupé of The Year. However, this isn’t one of the cooking petrol and diesel versions that sit lower down the range, or even the sportier TT S. This is the range-topping TT RS.
It's available as either a hardtop Coupé or an open-top Roadster. Both cars come with the same 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder petrol engine, which is now lighter than it's ever been and pumps out a mighty 394bhp. This power is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, giving some seriously impressive performance figures.
The TT RS certainly has its closest rivals, the Porsche Cayman S and BMW M4, licked for straight-line pace, then, because both of those cars are slightly slower in a straight line.
However, are those rear-wheel-drive rivals more fun to drive and therefore better sports cars? Read on over the next few pages to get our in depth impressions of the TT RS, and to see how it compares with the competition.
