AUDI’S TT RS has made a comeback to the Australian market, returning in facelifted form after homologation issues overseas and other factors conspired to keep the sportscar out of local showrooms for more than a year.
It charges back in with the familiar fire-breathing 294kW 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbo-petrol engine. And while that is no bad thing, there is a suspension upgrade among the equipment overhaul that in overall terms adds a load of extra value to the flagship of the TT range.
With the TT in its final throes of its current lifecycle and not entering a fourth generation – at least, not as we know it – this new RS, now priced from $134,900 plus on-road costs, looks to be the last roll of the dice.
Is it worth the gamble?
