  • This new model will debut at the Geneva Motor Show
  • Direct petrol injection and a turbocharger deliver far more than 300 bhp
  • Top-notch chassis, big brakes, and quattro drivetrain

Audi is once again producing a five-cylinder powerhouse: the Audi TT RS will be unveiled to the world at the Geneva Motor Show next week. Its turbocharged 2.5-litre engine produces well above 300 bhp. It also delivers explosive acceleration, driving delight, and unrivalled sound.

A legend is return. After all, powerful five-cylinder petrol engines have a long legacy at Audi. And the turbocharged direct-fuel-injection engine in the TT RS is the new torchbearer of this dynamic tradition. It enables the TT RS to perform extraordinary feats. For example, it needs nowhere near five seconds to reach 100 km/h; overtaking is child’s play; and 250 km/h is the limited top speed only on paper.

The quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, a sophisticated chassis, and stupendous brakes keep a tight rein on the power. All in all, the compact TT RS – with its light weight and largely aluminium body constructed as per the Audi Space Frame principle – is a driving machine to be reckoned with.

Expect to read more about this car, in both coupe and roadster form, next week at Next Car.
