The engine remains the same – a 2.5-litre, five-cylinder turbocharged petrol developing 394bhp and 480Nm of torque that is paired to a seven-speed S tronic automatic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive. That means the TT RS is capable of 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds and can reach a limited top speed of 155mph. The limit can be optionally increased to 174mph.

The Audi drive select system allows the driver to alter the engine and transmission’s responsiveness, steering weight and exhaust flap settings – with comfort, auto, dynamic and individual modes on offer.

Inside the TT RS, Audi has fitted RS sport seats in Alcantara or optional honeycomb Nappa leather, the 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit display with special RS displays, a leather RS sports steering wheel and Audi’s MMI navigation plus infotainment setup with a Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Available to order from February 7, deliveries of both the Coupe and Cabriolet will begin in the spring.
