What's New in the 2018 Audi TT RS?

The TT RS is all-new for this model year.

Which TT RS is the Best?

If this is going to be a weekend track toy, think about the fixed suspension option. If the plan is to drive the car each day, the standard adaptive suspension is probably the best call.

2018 Audi TT RS vs the competition

2018 BMW M2 -- Comes in coupe form only, with 365 hp from a turbocharged inline 6-cylinder and BMW's traditional rear-drive layout. Not the design statement the TT RS is, but wonderful to drive and less expensive.

2018 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport -- Comes with 460 hp from a thunderous V8 set in a lightweight body. This generation of Corvette also has excellent rear-drive handling. Targa and convertible versions are available.

2018 Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe -- Slightly pricier than the TT RS, but then it does have 469 hp from a turbocharged 4.0-liter V8.

2018 Porsche 718 Cayman S -- Accessible for a Porsche, and the S version has 350 hp, along with a beautiful midengined/rear-drive balance. Like the Corvette, it's only a 2-seater, but so is the TT RS in practice if not in theory.

Used Porsche 911 -- Because whenever someone wants a small ultra-sporty coupe, deep in their hearts they really desire the 911 -- a car that has occupied a special place within the automotive landscape since the 1960s. Check out Porsche's certified pre-owned (CPO) program.
