The Audi TT RS (8J) is Audi's high-performance variant of the TT (8J). It utilises a turbocharged 2.5L I5 engine, that delivers 335 bhp between 5,400 and 6,500 rpm. The engine was later used by the 2011-2012 Audi RS 3.
In 2012, the TT RS received a minor upgrade variant known as the TT RS Plus with an upgraded version of the turbocharged 2.5L inline-5 engine. The TT RS (8J) was discontinued in 2014, along with the rest of the 8J generation Audi TT variants, and was succeeded by the 8S generation Audi TT RS in 2016.
Need for Speed: Nitro
The Audi TT RS appears as a class A car in Need for Speed: Nitro. It is rated 4 in speed; 3 in both acceleration and strength; and 2 in both handling and drifting.
A TT RS with a unique livery can be unlocked as a Collectable Car for use in both Arcade Mode and Career Mode, once the player finishes the Gold Cup Grand Prix in 3rd place.
Need for Speed: World
The acceleration of the TT RS is among the best compared to the rest of the C class. It does however come at the expense of a unresponsive handling, which is due to the heavy mass of the vehicle. The car has a good nitrous boost and can reach a top speed of 160 mph (258 km/h).
The Red style is an Amerikon Speedsystems performance tuned speedboost car that costs 2600. It was made available on March 2nd, 2011 as a rental car before being being offered without a lease on March 18, 2011.
The Vesna style is an art director car that costs 2600. It was initially only obtainable as a top-up gift from July 5, 2011 to August 8, 2011, and was later released through limited time offers.
The livery was designed by Illustration Artist Danny Lee.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010)
The Audi TT RS appears in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) as an Performance Series racer vehicle, and as an SCPD Highway patrol unit.
The racer vehicle is unlocked upon the player earning a total of 40,000 racer bounty. The SCPD unit is unlocked upon the player earning a total of 40,000 cop bounty. Purchasing the Limited Edition release will unlock the racer vehicle at the beginning of the player's career.
Its lightweight composition helps its initial acceleration, which is faster than most Performance class cars such as the Maserati GranTurismo S, although reaching its top speed of 185 mph (298 km/h) takes notably longer to reach. It is capable of exiting corners quickly, although its handling is more suited for short drifting manoeuvres. It is also very durable.
|Earn 40,000 racer bounty||Performance Series||155 mph (249 km/h)||$65,000||AWD|

- Before the August 24, 2011 patch was applied in Need for Speed: World, the Audi TT RS became rear-wheel drive after having performance parts installed.
