AUDI'S top of the range and most powerful small sports car has been given a more aggressive and dynamic look for 2019 with styling changes designed to better reflect its performance potential.
The hot TT RS is capable of up to 174mph with the optional performance pack and now has the mean looks to match the mega-performance provided by its 2.5 litre, 400hp powerplant.
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.
The drive train remains the same with the International Engine of the Year winning five-cylinder engine mated to a seven speed auto gearbox and quattro all-wheel drive and capable of delivering a 0 to 62mph time of 3.7 seconds in the Coupe model and a top speed of 155mph which can be boosted to 174mph.
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.
Order books for the new 2019 TT RS Coupe and Roadster will open in April. Prices can be expected to start at around £55,000.
