Specially designed to take on the likes of the Porsche 718 Cayman S or the BMW M2, the 2018 Audi TT RS is set to debut on American soil at the upcoming New York Auto Show. The latest model in Audi’s Sport range packs a potent 2.5-liter five-cylinder TFSI, that’s capable of developing a cool 400 hp and 354lb-ft of torque, making this the most powerful TT ever.

This engine has been exclusively mated to a seven-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox and permanent Quattro all-wheel drive, enabling the new Audi TT RS to brag about a 0 to 60 mph time of just 3.6 seconds and a top speed that’s electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h) or 174 mph (280 km/h) if drivers ask for the Dynamic plus package.

The brand’s new Quattro all-wheel-drive system will reroute power according to the driver’s needs – even as much as 100 percent can be sent to the rear axle, if needed. According to the German automaker, there is another premiere to be mention, specifically that the Quattro all-wheel drive has been fully integrated within the Audi drive select system.

The magnetic ride suspension will be adjusting the firmness of its dampers accordingly, to deliver the proper driving experience in any occasion. Further noteworthy equipment includes the eight-piston brake calipers and 370mm crossed-drilled steel discs – or carbon-ceramic brakes, as an option, if you’re willing to take this beauty for a quick spin around the track.

Last but not least, we should mention that the 2018 Audi TT RS starts off at $64,900 and should arrive at a dealer near you this spring.

Victor has always been a big fan of cars, which is why he’s so proud to call himself a genuine petrolhead these days. His love actually stemmed from his father, who was an automotive engineer. Today, he loves to write down everything that comes to mind, car-related or not, and when he really gets down to it, he pretty much becomes one with his laptop.
