We recently brought you pricing for the facelifted Audi TT RS coupé. Now the German firm’s local arm has confirmed the updated model’s arrival in South Africa, while also releasing pricing for the TT RS Roadster.

As we pointed out in the original story, the TT RS coupé starts at R1 062 000, which translates to a R248 500 premium over the 225 kW TT S coupé. The TT RS Roadster, meanwhile, kicks off at R1 113 500. Both prices include the Ingolstadt-based company’s five-year/100 000 km Audi Freeway Plan.

Revealed back in February 2019, the updated TT RS sticks with its turbocharged 2,5-litre five-cylinder engine, which sends an unchanged 294 kW and 480 N.m to all four corners via a seven-speed S tronic transmission.

That’s enough, says Audi, for the TT RS coupé to sprint from standstill to 100 km/h in 3,7 seconds. Top speed is again limited to 250 km/h, although Audi will raise that figure to 280 km/h if you tick the right box.

Sporting what the company terms a more “masculine” appearance, the refreshed TT RS gains a redesigned front end and a more striking rump. Up front, the “Quattro” logo is positioned in the lower section of the grille.

Round back, you’ll struggle to miss the new fixed rear wing with side winglets, complemented by vertical design elements on both sides above the new RS-specific diffuser (the latter housing two large oval tailpipes). In South Africa, nine exterior colour options are offered for the TT RS, including an RS-specific "Kyalami Green" hue.

Inside, you’ll find RS sport seats with a honeycomb pattern in Fine Nappa leather (with blue, red or black stitching) as well as the RS logos on the pews, steering wheel, door-sill trim and selector levers. The Audi virtual cockpit with its 12,3-inch screen is furthermore standard, along with an RS leather-wrapped steering wheel with shift paddles.
