Self Study Program 451 – Audi TT RS with 2.5L R5 TFSI Engine

VAG SSP 451. In this Self-Study Programme you will learn the key distinctions between the Audi TT RS (Coupe and Roadster) and the production model. The central feature of both models is the new 2.5l R5 TFSI engine.

The Audi TT RS developed by quattro GmbH breathes new life into venerable old traditions. Thanks to a turbocharged 2.5-litre five cylinder inline engine, permanent all-wheel drive, a sporty yet comfortable suspension and the design, both the Coupe and the Roadster are uncompromising sports cars.

Turbocharged five-cylinder petrol engines already put the first generation of the Audi quattro ahead of the competition. The new engine generation combines turbocharging with petrol direct injection. The TFSI engine develops 250 kW (340 hp) from 2480 cm³ of cubic displacement – that’s an output of 137.1 hp per litre. The Coupe weighs in at a mere 1450 kilograms and has a power-to-weight ratio of only 4.3 kilograms per hp, while the equivalent figure for the Roadster (1510 kilograms) is 4.4.

The TT RS Coupe’s powerplant launches it from a standing start to 100 kph in 4.6 seconds, as against 4.7 seconds for the Roadster. The top speed of both versions is electronically limited to 250 kph, but can be delimited to 280 kph at the customer’s option.

Peak torque is 450 Nm and is continuously available from 1600 rpm to 5300 rpm, giving the car formidable pulling power. And yet, the TT RS Coupe gets by on only 9.2 litres of fuel per 100 km (Roadster: 9.5 litres per 100 km), making it another example of how Audi blends dynamism and efficiency.
