With the gorgeous TT RS, Audi have come closest to recapturing the driving spirit of their legendary Quattro coupe.
Performance is certainly there. The turbocharged 5 cylinder engine pushes out 335bhp and, more importantly, 312lbft of torque from just 1600rpm. The result is a 4 second 0-60mph sprint and limited 155mph top speed.
Handling is the best yet but still does not engage to the level of rivals such as the Cayman. Nevertheless, at £42k this is a highly desirable performance car.
