2020 Audi TT RS price and specs: Hot coupe returns to Oz

Audi Australia has announced pricing and specification for its returning 2020 TT RS coupe ahead of a local showroom arrival in July. The refreshed coupe was revealed in February 2019, and was initially expected to make its Australian debut later that year. However, delays tied to WLTP fuel consumption testing and necessary changes to its iconic five-cylinder engine, and demand for the more popular RS 3, saw the TT RS's arrival pushed back.
