audi is making the tt rs coupe a little more attractive for the 2021 model year with new standard equipment, including black exterior trim, that gives it a sportier look—as if the rs version wasn't sporty enough. the new sports coupes will also come standard with new technology including standard apple carplay and android auto.
the new look consists of a new black optic exterior, and even more black trim can be added with available black badging. red brakes are now standard, as are a set of 20-inch seven-spoke audi sport wheels wrapped in all-season rubber. the sporty details flow into the interior as well with new standard carbon fiber inlays on the center console and doors. a bang and olufsen sound system is also standard as well as audi's mmi infotainment system with navigation, audi connect, and lane-keeping assist. for 2021, a new sport exhaust with black tips is available to add to the blacked-out look.
the tt rs is powered by a raucous 394-hp turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder that sends power to all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and audi's quattro all-wheel-drive system. during car and driver testing, a 2018 model launched to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds on its way to an 11.8-second quarter-mile at 117 mph.
the 2021 audi tt rs is on sale in the u.s. starting at $73,545, making it $4950 more expensive than the 2020 model.
