New Audi TT RS Coupe Is Quick

Published Date: 26th Jun 2005

Audi TT RS Coupe quicker than both the new BMW M3 and the new Mercedes Benz C55 AMG.

While the new Audi delivers better out and out pace it does not offer the same raw driving pleasure as the M3. A more refined powerhouse, the RS offers a private jet alternative to the BMW's fighter plane nature.

The saloon body shape of the new Audi RS features the firm's deep new signature grille and sits 30 mm lower than the standard model.

New 19-inch alloy wheels fill the arches, while a set of low profile Pirelli P-Zero tyres combine with an Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) to produce some stunning grip, even in the wet.

Inside and the new Audi feels every bit top of the range, with RS sports seats, an a-symmetric steering wheel and lashings of carbon fibre; while an engine starter button and drilled aluminium pedals ensure that the new Audi upholds the firm's reputation for detail.
