The mighty Audi TT RS is now available with the firm’s seven-speed dual-clutch S-tronic gearbox.
That might sound quite boring to you, but actually this transmission is one of the most advanced and sophisticated units in business.
And it does has its effect on the car as it now sprints from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in just 4.3 seconds. Top speed is governed electronically at 250 km/h (155.34 mph). It’s also beneficial in terms of fuel economy with usage of 8.5 liters (27.67 US mpg) of fuel per 100 km and emissions of just 197 g/km (317.04 g/mile) of CO2.
The seventh gear is configured as a high-geared overdrive which reduces engine speed, thus cutting fuel consumption. In addition, a launch control function offers virtually perfect acceleration from a standing start, with maximum turbo power and minimum wheel spin.
You can have this car as both coupe and convertible variants. It’s not cheap though! The pricing starts from 58,300 Euro for the coupe and 61,150 Euro for the roadster.
