Audi TT RS (2016) goes 911 baiting - CAR Magazine

Like the fact that it's got Audi's larger, wave-patterned and drilled brake discs (currently unavailable on the S), RS brake callipers and - our man with the long lens observed - RS-spec dampers under the mostly aluminium bodywork. That this is indeed a late prototype testing the 2016 Audi TT RS running gear. Audi TT RS: the spec CAR magazine's information is that the new RS will be positioned above its predecessor, seen here benchmarking against the new car. We understand it'll run the 2. 5-litre five-cylinder turbocharged up to 380bhp and 406lb ft of torque, making for one very rapid TT. One rivalling the Porsche 911 Carrera S more than the boggo Carrera - for 40% less cash. The last fast TT ( reviewed here ) sported a fixed rear wing, regular RS twin oval exhuasts and some pretty scintillating performance figures: it could sprint to 62mph in just 4. 1sec and we'd anticipate the new one being faster by a margin.
