The Audi TT RS is the performance hero of the TT range. It comes packing a five-cylinder inline turbocharged petrol engine developing 294kW (400hp) of power and 480Nm of torque available between 1,700 and 5,850rpm.

Already equipped with an RS body kit, fixed rear spoiler and 19-inch wheels – or 20-inch forged lightweight wheels as an option – the TT RS looks aggressive and imposing straight out of the factory. But that didn’t stop chassis specialist from spicing things up just a little further with a set of lowering springs for the sports coupe.

Specially tuned to work with the factory adaptive dampers, the springs lower the TT RS by up to 25mm at the front and 20mm in the rear. The subtle drop is enough to set off a properly aggressive stance, eliminating any visible gap between the tyres and the wheel arches.

As the spring rates are the same as the factory specifications, the tuner says ride quality is not compromised while handling is improved and roll is reduced in corners. It’s also claimed that all suspension components are German made and have been TÜV tested and certified to guarantee durability and high performance.
