MODERN CLASSIC

Following the reveal of the unveil of the facelifted Audi TT last year, Audi Sport has finally taken the wraps off its updated TT RS. Audi believes "The new TT RS is in absolute peak form", and because of this, have not altered anything with its powertrain. It retains its award-winning 2.5 TFSI motor and once again produces 294kw and 480nm. Drive is sent to all four corners thanks to a Haldex all-wheel drive system, and is paired with a seven-speed S-Tronic transmission. Expect 0-100kph in just 3.7 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 250kph. The real changes though, are purely stylistic, giving the TT RS a far more aggressive look. The front-end now comes with a deeper full-width front spoiler with bigger air scoops, new side sills, a newly designed fixed rear wing with side winglets and an RS-specific rear diffuser. LED headlamps are fitted as standard with matrix LED units available as an option. Little has changed inside the car, either, other than the fitment of the latest Audi infotainment system, although many of its functions are listed as options including touch and voice control features. The 'new' TT RS is available in eight different colours, including the new RS-specific color Kyalami green and the new colors Pulse orange and Turbo blue. Upon request, matte aluminium and gloss black styling packages highlight the blade and rear wing. The TT RS is expected to reach European dealers next month, with Audi South Africa saying the revised TT-RS will land before the end of 2019. That said the updated version of the regular TT is expected to launch in South Africa next month. #TunedAutomotive #AutoAdvisorZA
