There are limited numbers of the RS in the UK so tracking one down may take some time. The Coupe version is more popular with the Roadster only accounting for one in every five cars. The RS is easy to tell apart from the standard TT thanks to larger bumpers and the fixed rear wing. However, this can be changed to the standard spoiler (which rises up at higher speeds).
Look out for kerbed or scratched alloy wheels as these can be expensive to repair.
Any TT should sell quickly and the RS will create plenty of interest thanks to its impressive pace and rarity. It's quicker than alternatives like the Porsche Cayman S and the Mercedes SLK55 AMG, which will make it appealing to performance car enthusiasts.
