    1. Video: Audi TT RS vs. Boxster S vs. 370Z on Fifth Gear (plus the Stig!)



      Fifth Gear, that other British automotive show, recently threw the Audi TT RS up against the Porsche Boxster S and Nissan 370Z. This wasn't your typical match, including an agility test with J-turns and sliding into parking spaces, a drifting competition and finally a hot lap.

      Interestingly, ...
    2. Hair Dress This! BMW 1 Series M and Aston V8 Vantage both Slower Than Audi TT RS 'Round the 'Ring



      We just caught a VERY interesting headline today by our buddies over at Jalopnik. The story title reads "BMW 1 Series M Rounds Nürburgring Slower than Audi TT-RS". Okay Jalop, you have our attention.

      Of course BMW hasn't published a lap time for its new M-ified 1er but the guys at Gawker's ...
    3. Video: UK Tuner's Audi TT RS Manages 0-60 MPH in 3.55 Sec & 12.09 Quarter Mile at GTI International



      We've run photos of this particular signal green TT RS in the past. Owned by UK tuning firm TTS Roadsport, the car features ECU upgrade and exhaust. That's a conservative list of mods but worth noting when you pair it with the fact that they managed 3.55 seconds 0-60 mph and a 12.09 quarter mile at this year's GTI International.

      The below video, circulating around TT discussion forums for a while ...
    4. Audi Exclusive Sighting: TT RS in Malibu Blue



      As part of our ongoing series on special build cars by Audi Exclusive, this particular Audi TT RS popped onto our radar when it was featured on TT-Forum.co.uk. Malibu Blue is the reported name of this light blue metallic. Admittedly we've had a light blue Audi of our own, namely a Jet Blue S5 that we parted company with earlier this year but we're not sure yet about this one. Of course the TT RS looks amazing ...
    5. Audi TT RS Practically a Go for America Suggests Official AoA Petition + Our Own Intel with Projected Price



      Audi has launched a petition for American consumers to gauge reaction and measure demand for the 350 hp Audi TT RS. We've known Audi of America is VERY serious about adding this car to its lineup and has been considering it for a while and this new social media blast to try to gain a measure for the number of hand raisers is a very good sign. Even better is their next step in producing a few video shorts via the Audi of America ...
    6. Audi Exclusive Sighting: TT RS Painted Mexico Blue



      Mexico Blue seems to be a recent favorite of Audi's skunkworks quattro GmbH and their Audi Exclusive paint-it-whatever-color-you-want-it service Audi Exclusive. We've seen this vibrant blue with a tinge of green before, just last week even on an RS 6 cruising the streets of Munich. We think such a bold color belongs best on a wilder RS spec Audi and the TT RS certainly fills the bill. Care to see ...
    7. New RS 5-Inspired Interior for TT from Audi Exclusive



      While in Germany last week we picked up a stack of new Audi model catalogs including one for the TT that's just gone through a product improvement. Perusing the pages of the book since we've returned we think we've stumbled across something that's not yet been seen or shared. We've double-checked the Audi Germany configurator and not found reference ...
    8. Audi Exclusive Sighting: TT RS in Porsche's Viper Green



      It's an acquired taste I suspect but Porsche's Viper Green is a staple amongst anyone with a Porsche 911 familiarity. Be it an early '70s long hood or a modern 997 GT3 RS, this vibrant and most primary green offers a very unique take on the "look at me damnit" color palette. Occasionally you'll find an Audi painted in the hue as we have here and, most fitting, it is painted on an RS. It's a TT RS to be specific, ...
