The Audi TT RS delivers a 360 horsepower 2.5 liter I5 with a turbo, rocketing the car from 0-60mph in just over 4 seconds. The only transmission available is a 6-speed manual, which caters more to enthusiasts than to casual buyers. Audi has appointed the TT RS very handsomely. Standard features include magnetic ride, backguard, hill assist, xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights, automatic air conditioning, Bluetooth, SiriusXM, sporty exhaust, and many other goodies.
Optional equipment includes a Bose stereo, premium wheels, navigation with iPod integration, interior LED lighting, adaptive headlights, heated front seats, and a variety of performance and aesthetic add-ons. Carbon fiber or titanium trim pieces are available, but are optional extras. The color palette comes in the usual gray scale, plus some exciting, sporty colors, though nothing flashy, while the interior comes in whatever color you like, as long as it is black. Happily, the interior car be all leather or leather with alcantara inserts. Trim is limited to brushed aluminum, so sadly, there is no avenue for the additional elegance which wood provides. Safety features include air bags all over the cabin as well as an anti-whiplash restraint, to help prevent injury from rear end collisions.
