The TT RS' cabin has been enhanced with an all dark grey interior trim scheme, even more leather, bespoke instruments, side sills with TT RS logos, that lovely gear knob, alloy pedals and flat-bottomed steering wheel among other stuff. The test car had optional two piece buckets that look like the sports seats in the R8 - they not only look brilliant but also hug you snugly in the corners.

With the TT RS, Audi has something that can really unsettle the likes of the Cayman/Boxster and the BMW Z4 SDrive35i in the small sports coupe sector. The TT RS though brings things up to another level - it now goes head to head with the brilliant Cayman S thanks to its charismatic and pokey engine as well as its exploitable all-weather handling. With Porsche joining the VW Group, the TT RS will be more than too close for comfort for the class-leading Porker.
