Pricing details for the new R8 have also been revealed.

Audi has announced pricing and spec details for the latest version of the TT RS.

The hottest version of the popular sports car is available from £53,905 OTR in coupe trim, or £55,655 OTR if you opt for the drop-top.

The TT RS is powered by the same 394 bhp 2.5-litre TFSI engine as in the recently-launched RS3. That's enough to get the TT RS Roadster to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds and the coupe to the same speed in 3.7 seconds in the TT RS Coupé, while both will top out at 174 mph.

Both models of the TT RS will be available in range-topping Audi Sport Edition trim which add black exterior highlights on the radiator grille, door mirror housings, front blade, and rear diffuser insert. The badges are also blacked out, as are the diamond cut 20-inch '7-spoke rotor' design Audi Sport alloy wheels. The large oval exhaust tailpipes are also finished in gloss black.

If the TT RS isn't enough for you, the latest version of the R8 is also about to hit showrooms.

The V10-powered supercar, which shares 50 percent of its parts with its GT3 racing counterpart, has two performance levels – the standard R8 V10 puts out 562 bhp, but if you opt for the 'Performance' trim, you get an extra 39 horses to play with. No matter which you opt for, a 200 mph top speed is easily achievable.

As well as more power, the R8 V10 Performance adds ceramic brakes, Sport plus suspension, a fixed gloss carbon rear spoiler and, inside, matt titanium inlays, and R8 bucket seat.
