It is good news for Audi lovers residing in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain. Ali & Sons, the official Audi dealer for both these cities, has introduced two new RS models - the third generation Audi TT RS and the RS 5 Coupe.
The new Audi TT RS comes with various upgrades in all the three departments - performance, tech and features. Under the hood is a 2.5-litre TFSI engine which has been tuned to produce a maximum power of 400 bhp and to deliver a peak torque of 480 Nm. The new TT RS weighs 20 kg lighter than its predecessor. These figures promise to put a big smile on your face whenever you put your right foot down on the pedal. The classic TT design has been kept in the new model too but with a few additions - a fixed rear wing, oval tailpipes and diffuser, along with air intakes and a front splitter across its nose.
The other model is the new Audi RS 5 Coupe. It's been derived from latest A5 Coupe but is more striking to look at, thanks to its rear spoiler, prominent air intakes and tailpipes, and gloss-black air vents. It is powered by a 2.9-litre TFSI twin-turbo engine that puts out a total of 450 bhp of power and a whopping 600 Nm of torque. The new model weighs 1,655 kg, which is around 60 kg lighter than the previous generation model. And for all those performance-freaks, Audi provides an option of having a carbon fibre roof for your RS 5. This will further reduce the weight by 3 kg. Its powerful engine is capable to take this car from a standstill to 100 kph in under 4 seconds, and flat-out it will do a top speed of 250 kph.
Both the new Audis - TT RS and RS 5 Coupe - have got Audi's MMI navigation plus, which allows the driver to have full control over all the systems in the car like navigation, media, ride quality, etc. These options can be changed via steering mounted controls. To make the cabin of these cars more luxurious, Audi has provided fine Nappa leather interiors as an option.
Mark Austin, General Manager of Ali & Sons Audi, says, “It gives me great pleasure to welcome the new TT RS and RS 5 back into our showrooms for customers looking for a drive and aesthetic fuelled by Audi's racing heritage. Both offer exceptional ride quality and come packed with the latest assist-technology to improve the customer's overall driving experience.”
