Even more powerful, even faster, even more dynamic: the scorching Audi TT RS plus has arrived in Australia, with an

265 kW, sufficient for a top speed of 280 km/h.
The 2.5-litre TFSI in the Audi TT RS Plus is a high-performance engine, with a history of success. Compared with the
engine on which it is based, this turbocharged direct-injection unit delivers 15 kW more power and produces 465 Nm of
torque, 15 Nm more than before.
The seven-speed S tronic delivers lightning-fast gearshifts. This dual-clutch transmission comes with a launch control
function which optimises acceleration from a standing start. The quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, which operates
with a multi-plate clutch, transfers engine power to the road with supreme confidence.
Against the backdrop of the five-cylinder engine’s characteristic roaring and growling, the TT RS Plus sprints from a
standstill to 100 km/h in a blistering 4.1 seconds, and is limited to a top speed of 280 km/h. Despite these impressive
figures, fuel consumption is exceptionally frugal at just 8.5 litres per 100 km.
Alongside numerous efficiency-improving measures, these top figures are due primarily to the lightweight Audi Space
Frame (ASF) body, hewn from aluminium at the front and sheet steel at the rear. The TT RS Plus, including quattro drive,
weighs just 1,475 kilogrammes, giving a power-to-weight ratio of 5.6 kilogrammes per kilowatt.

conjunction with perforated brake discs are installed on the front axle. The Audi TT RS plus is fitted with 19-inch cast
wheels of five-arm “Rotor” design which are painted black with contrasting red rim flanges. The wheels are fitted with
The adaptive damping system known as Audi magnetic ride is fitted as standard equipment. A large, fixed rear wing
increases downforce at the back of the car.
The singleframe radiator grille also sets the Audi TT RS Plus apart visually. Its diamond-pattern mesh is in highly
polished anthracite and is trimmed with a matt aluminium-look frame. The housings of the exterior mirrors are made of
carbon fibre-reinforced polymer (CFRP), while the dual-branch sport exhaust system has black oval tailpipe trims. A sound
flap further intensifies the sound of the engine.
The Carbon design package gives the engine compartment a more exclusive look that befits this range-topper, along with
a gear lever that is emblazoned with TT RS Plus badge.
