Audi UK is today take the wraps off one of the fastest TT models ever to enter series production in a special preview held at the brand’s digital hub, Audi City London.
The Mayfair showroom will host the live unveiling of the all-new TT RS Roadster on the same day that the TT RS Coupé makes its global debut at the Beijing Motor Show.
The TT RS Roadster is the first all-new model to have its premiere here in the UK, acknowledging the fact that this market is the largest worldwide in terms of overall TT sales, accounting for almost 50% of all European orders.
Both new additions to the RS range are powered by the Audi five-cylinder 2.5 TFSI engine, appearing here with the benefit of significant increases in power and torque to 400PS and 480Nm, which means a 62mph sprint from rest in 3.7 seconds and top speed of 174mph.
UK versions of the TT RS Coupé and TT RS Roadster will become available to order in Audi Centres during the summer in advance of first deliveries at the end of this year.
OLED (organic light emitting diode) rear lights will be offered for the first time in Audi series production for the new TT RS.
