In 1980, Audi introduced the quattro all-wheel drive system, which was then a huge success in various fields of motorsport, from rally to touring. In the first generation, with three more differentials, the middle and rear of which could be locked, and today it is in the sixth version, such is the case with the RS 5 Coupé, for example.

Two decades have passed since then and Audi is celebrating this with a great TT RS, the 40 years of quattro limited edition, of which only 40 copies are made. Not only does this commemorate the all-wheel drive, but it’s one of the last big throws of the TT, which will soon end without a successor.

Incredibly cool, retro decor was thrown on the white TT RS, suggesting a 1987 victory at Pikes Peak. Walter Röhrl won the mountain runner with a time of 10: 47.85 with his devastatingly strong (600 riders) and terribly big-winged Audi S1 ​​in 10: 47.85. That’s why the tricolor blooms there on the white car and that’s why the rims are also snow-white underneath. Not even the small wings were left behind by the TT RS. The carbon rear spoiler otherwise produces an extra 5 kg of clamping force at high speeds.

The distinctive pattern also returns inside, and the inscription 40 years of quattro is embroidered on the headrests of the sports seats. The most striking change is that the already limited-use rear seats have been discarded. Instead, a carbon fiber stiffener was installed, which reduces weight by 16 kg.

1-2-4-5-3 – this is the ignition sequence of the 2.5-liter, five-cylinder turbo engine, which in the TT RS has 400 horsepower and 480 Nm of torque. With this, the small two-seater coupe accelerates to 100 in 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 280 km / h.
