Life with an Audi TT RS: Month 7

Against two key rivals, will the TT RS get a photographer’s nod? - 13th June 2018

An Audi TT has passed through a snapper’s hands at Autocar before. In fact, Stan Papior ran one not so long ago. It wasn’t as expensive or as fast as the RS currently in Nic Cackett’s possession, but it was just as red and had much the same make-life-easy DSG gearbox.

He rather liked it. Which seemed counter-intuitive to me, given that he has to heave roughly the same amount of photographic kit as I do on a daily basis. On the list of cars – even coupés - that would suit a jobbing photographer, the TT struck me as being no more up to the task than a Porsche Cayman.
