Audi unveiled the new second-generation Audi TT RS at the Beijing Motor Show this week which will go on sale in the UK in October and be faster than the Porsche Cayman S.
The German manufacturer gave visitors the chance to see both the coupe and roadster version of the turbo-charged two-seater that will use a 2.5-litre five-cylinder petrol engine producing almost 400bhp.
Audi revealed the TT RS will start at around £50,000 which will compete directly against the Porsche Cayman S which costs £48,834.
The TT RS is the first Audi model to receive Audi’s new turbo-charged engine and has an aluminium block instead of a steel block. This makes the TTRS lighter than its predecessor by 10kg in fixed-roof form.
Audi claim the coupe can reach 0-62mph in 3.7 secs making it 0.4secs quicker than the TT RS Plus with a dual-clutch gearbox and faster than the Porsche Cayman S by 0.5 secs which is powered by a 2.5-litre four cylinder engine with 345bhp.
The roadster is 90kg heavier but can still claim 0-62mph in 3.9 secs. Both the coupe and roadster are limited to a top speed of 155mph.
A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox is included as standard along with launch control software and steering wheel-mounted shift paddles.
The TT's chassis has been lowered by 10mm over its predecessor, has 19in alloy wheels, new bumpers front and rear, wider door sills and oval exhaust pipes with a huge spoiler fixed on the rear.
Audi says it is confident of selling around 50 models in the UK this year despite it only be available for the last three months of the year.
