Audi TT RS: First drive review

Another nice driving review of the Audi TT RS.
Thanks to direct injection, there is instant torque even at low rpm and before the turbo kicks in—and it kicks in quickly. From 1600–5300rpm, 332 lb-ft are on tap. This engine does everything well. You can cruise along lazily in top gear, or you can rev it up to the limiter, which you are guaranteed to hit if you don't watch the tachometer because the boost just does not drop off. This is one of the few turbo engines which accelerates seamlessly and eagerly beyond redline.
