On display at Audi Forum Neckarsulm, the third generation of Ingolstadt’s TT RS Coupe is wearing an optional Lime Green body paint which we believe suits the model quite nicely. The car also has a glossy black optic package which is why the side mirror caps have a shiny carbon finish also noticeable on parts of the front spoiler and on the rear diffuser as well.
It also features those smart-looking matrix LED headlights which cost extra while at the back it comes with optional matrix OLED taillights, representing a first for a series-production Audi. Fitted with all the bells and whistles, the high-performance coupe also has the optional RS sports exhaust and sits on aluminum forged 20-inch wheels featuring a seven-spoke, rotor design and wrapped in 255/30 R20 tires.
The interior cabin is home to a standard 12.3-inch entirely digital instrument cluster along with a plethora of glossy carbon fiber accents. Dark Nappa leather was used to dress up the steering wheel and gear selector while the seats have a grey Nappa leather finish with black diamond contrast stitching.
Due to go on sale in Europe this fall, the Audi TT RS Coupe is powered by an entirely new turbocharged 2.5-liter, five-cylinder engine. It pushes out 400 horsepower (294 kilowatts) and 354 pound-feet (280 kph) of torque delivered to an all-wheel-drive quattro system through a seven-speed S tronic that promises to offer “lightning-speed shifting.”
Thanks to the new hardware, it rockets from 0 to 62 mph (100 kph) in only 3.7 seconds (3.9s for Roadster) before topping out at an electronically-capped 155 mph (250 kph). Upon request, Audi will be kind enough to raise the maximum velocity limiter to 174 mph (280 kph).
As far as pricing is concerned, the coupe will kick off at €66,400 in Germany where the roadster is going to set you back €69,200.
