TT has always offered more than most sports from coupe to convertible, to all-wheel-drive and a range of engines warm to wild-ish.

The only our 2006 Drive Car of the Year has is a truly ballsy, single-minded Until now.

WHAT DO YOU

At $133,700 plus on-road and costs, the manual-only RS is nigh-on the price of entry-level TTs. though satellite navigation is the trip computer has a lap-timer and you get headlights with LED daytime lights, the spec is rather next to BMW’s toy-laden Z4

The mechanical advances more compensate and are headed by an all-new five-cylinder turbo engine, suspension and meatier brakes. Big wheels, a fixed rear and some more subtle additions add bite to the TT’s

The RS’s racing-style sports don’t have side/thorax but you can specify less extreme, seats for no charge. Other equipment includes twin airbags, stability control and parking sensors. Similar to sports cars, there’s no crash test for the TT.

WHAT’S INSIDE?

The RS’s bolstered sports seats are supportive and comfortable, even if miss out on the luxury of power

The seats are backed up by a lovely steering wheel, logical and typically Audi (read: design and quality.

Those seats, however, make and exit a bit difficult. The back too, is only for very children, the 290-litre boot is and there’s no spare tyre, a compressor and can of goo.

Still, to its coupe siblings, the RS is more than most sports with split-fold back that boost load to 700 litres.

UNDER THE BONNET

With of power, 450Nm of torque and a 0-100km/h time of 4.6 seconds, the 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbo the goods on paper.

On the road a gem, delivering a heroic of power and a muscularity across the rev range, as well as a five-cylinder It’s furiously quick and responsive yet as flexible and unfussed as you wish for in typical urban and driving.

Criticisms? Well, the delivery is slanted more an explosive

mid-range than a top-end but that’s less a issue than a matter of

Also, our urban/highway test of 12.3 litres per 100 kilometres was higher than Audi’s 9.2L/100km average and we saw even numbers in urban running. On the road, though, sub-10L/100km were achievable.

The RS dives corners enthusiastically and has that endearingly athletic balance as its siblings, with strong precise steering and all-wheel-drive adding to its confidence-inspiring qualities.

A button on the centre console the suspension, sharpens engine and opens a flap in the exhaust for acoustics. The driving experience has a tangible whiff of Audi’s Quattro rally cars of the

The RS is less adept at pampering its fidgeting noticeably on rough and making a bit of a racket on coarse-chip at highway speeds. However, you feel the lumps and bumps the are never harsh; it’s not at all or uncomfortable.

The RS’s mighty evocative soundtrack and agile manners endow it with a and emotional appeal beyond TTs. It deals up big driving and is surprisingly easy to live though there is the odd minor and safety blemish.

The real is whether it’s capable and enough to outdo proven rivals. After a brief I reckon the Audi, at the very is up for the fight.
