Review

The Audi TT RS isn’t the sharpest car in its class to drive, but few similar-priced sports cars can match its outright pace and beautifully constructed interior. The Porsche 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman have a better chassis set-up, but their coarse four-cylinder engines sound poor next to the TT RS's wonderful five-pot motor. Those looking for the purest driving experience for this money should try the sweet-handling Alpine A110 instead.

Trim: Audi Sport Edition

Engine: TT RS TFSI Quattro Audi Sport Ed

The mightly 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder petrol engine pumps out...wait for it...395bhp, and sounds superb — even more so if you opt for the Roadster and put the roof down. With standard quattro four-wheel drive the Coupé can hit 0-62mph in a claimed 3.7sec, while the Roadster is only just behind that. The dual-clutch automatic gearbox is usefully responsive when you're driving hard and changes smoothly when you're cruising.
