TWO of the most anthemic soundtracks played by modern day sports cars have been remastered and reissued by Audi.

The German car maker is bringing back its V10 powered R8 supercar alongside a new TT RS and RS 3, both with five-cylinder TFSI engines that develop a distinctive note harking back to the original quattro models.

The R8 V10, priced from £128,295 for a quattro coupe, is now available with either a 570ps engine or a 610ps Performance variant which costs from £141,295.

Top speed in all versions is beyond 200mph and suspension and steering settings have also been revised for more precision.

Range topping Carbon Black R8s - priced from £154,195 for a coupe or £162,885 for an open top Spyder - come with extra styling tweaks as well as Audi's magnetic ride adaptive damping.

The 2.5-litre TFSI engine in the latest TT RS and RS 3 models develops 400ps and gives a 0-62mph sprint time of 4.1 seconds in the RS 3, 3.9 seconds in the TT RS Roadster and 3.7 seconds in the TT RS Coupe.

Top speed is 155mph in the RS 3 variants and 174mph in each TT RS.

The TT RS is priced from £53,905 for the coupe and £55,655 for the roadster while the RS 3 costs from £46,285 or £47,285 for a saloon.
