2016 Audi TT RS will stick to the 2.5-liter five-cylinder TFSI engine

Article by Christian A., on September 15, 2014

Earlier this year, Audi introduced the third-generation TT Coupe and next month at the 2014 Paris Motor Show it will bring the 2015 TT Roadster. According to Audi’s technical project manager Markus Siewart, the German manufacturer will offer a new TT RS because the current model was a successful vehicle, people loved it and are asking for the new one.

Siewart also added that the new model will stick to the current 2.5-liter five-cylinder petrol engine and as expected it will be more powerful. If you don’t remember, the current five-cylinder engine that powers the TT RS develops 340 hp and is bolted to a 6-speed automatic transmission, while power is delivered to the road via the permanent all-wheel-drive system.

As a result, the TT RS rockets from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.6 seconds, while top speed is 250 km/h or 155 mph. As an option, Audi can increase top speed to 280 km/h or 174 mph. The new model is expected to offer the same top speed but it will offer a better acceleration.

The most powerful model from the new TT lineup is the TTS and this model is powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI engine that produces 310 hp (228 kW) and 380 Nm of torque (280 lb-ft). The 2015 Audi TTS is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds while top speed is 250 km/h or 155 mph.
