2018 Audi TT RS Chassis
Keeping our victories in frame.
Exceptional handling and balance starts with the frame. So we built the Audi TT RS with performance components from the ground up, taking special care with chassis components like RS-tuned Audi magnetic ride suspension and progressive steering to help underpin a performance that comes out on top.
RS-tuned progressive steering
Increasing the steering ratio as you turn the wheel, sport-inspired progressive steering helps gives you tighter control in the corners.
RS-tuned Audi magnetic ride
Using a synthetic blend of hydrocarbon oil containing tiny magnetic particles between 3 and 10 microns in diameter, Audi magnetic ride adjusts the firmness of the dampers to help match the current road conditions within a few milliseconds by creating a magnetic field within the shock absorber. Drivers can choose between a more comfortable ride or a sportier experience to suit the situation and their personal preference.
Let us show you how Audi Magnetic ride works.

Audi drive select—Comfort mode
Comfort mode favors a softer suspension and boosted steering power assistance that is ideal for long-distance travel.
Audi drive select—Auto mode
Auto mode provides the most balanced engine and chassis response.
Audi drive select—Dynamic mode
Dynamic mode provides optimal engine and chassis settings for performance driving conditions. The suspension is optimized for handling and body control, the steering is heavier for a more direct feel, and the shift points are tuned for immediate response. An initial rear power bias helps deliver torque where you need it, thanks to Audi quattro®.
