2012 Audi TT

2012 Audi TT Review

(0 Stars)  The real TT sports car finally shows up.

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

We've been waiting for the wicked Audi TT RS for years, and this summer we'll finally get our hands on it. Audi seems to have its timing backward -- the RS should have been the first TT to show up, positioned as a performance halo car. Instead, the regular TT came here first, and it developed a bit of a chick-car image. Yes, the TT may look cute, but it's quite the little sports car. Audi tried to remedy its cutesy image with the TTS model, which is quick, perfectly balanced, and a blast to drive, but unfortunately, it's not available with a clutch pedal. Consequently, the TT RS has its work cut out for it in the image department, but we're expecting serious Porsche-pummeling performance. In addition to a menacing turbo-five soundtrack, the RS will scare off its prey with a magnetorheological suspension that continually adjusts suspension firmness for crisp handling without a punishing ride. The nineteen-inch wheels can only partly obscure the TT RS's enormous brakes -- 14.6-inch cross-drilled rotors with four-piston RS-badged calipers in front and 12.2-inch vented rotors in back. With the help of a forged crankshaft, the turbo five makes mincemeat of the TT RS's relatively light weight (about 3300 pounds) and catapults it to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds. Chick car? Not a chance.
