Article by Christian Andrei, on May 3, 2012

The new Audi TT RS Plus will start selling this summer in the UK with a starting price of £48,945. It will be available as a right-hand-drive of course. The new flagship TT has an extra 20bhp over the standard RS model (which produces 355bhp) and with an increase of 11lb ft in torque at 343lb ft.

When equipped with the optional seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, accelerating from zero to 62mph is achieved in 4.1sec (down from 4.3sec) for the coupé and 4.2sec (from 4.4sec) for the roadster.

But when using the six-speed manual ‘box, both body variants add 0.1sec to the 0-62mph acceleration time. The top speed for both the coupé and the roadster gets a boost from 155mph to 174mph. Audi asserted that the new TT RS plus could achieve 33.2mpg and 32.8mpg for the coupé and roadster respectively.

The exterior changes compared with the standard RS model include a set of 19-inch titanium-look alloys (an upgrade from 18-inch wheels), a matte aluminum surround and polished mesh grille, carbonfibre wing mirror housings and black oval tailpipe trims.

Offered as standard is a sports exhaust system. The TT RS plus cabin comes with equipment such as sat-nav and Bluetooth and iPod connectivity. The car’s gear knob has a TT RS plus logo.
