We're not getting the Audi TT RS There's a 50/50 change we'll get the Audi TT RS here in the United States, and frankly, if we don't that sucks. Ingolstadt has released the first "teaser" details on the über-TT, which will get the full dog-and-pony next month at the Geneva Motor Show, and it sounds like a good time waiting to happen.

The TT RS will make "well over" 300 horsepower from its turbocharged 2.5L five-cylinder. Expect it to go like stink, handle like a slot car, and make people write flowery new paeans to quattro. Look for the usual RS cues like monster-sized oval exhaust outlets and even more aggressive intakes up front. As the photos demonstrate, TT RS also sports LED driving lights and a fixed rear spoiler.

Oh, it sounds wicked, too. Just listen for yourselves. We'll be on hand next month to cover the big reveal in person.

      Part of me hopes it makes 301 horsepower.

      Woo HOO!!! and there's the magic words that ALWAYS accompany an audi post:

      ".....We're not getting the Audi TT RS here in the United States..."

      Thank you Autoblog for at least having the courtesy to rip the proverbial band aid off quickly and put this caveat right at the beginning of the article, rather than waiting till the end to break my heart, as usual.

      As if the TT-S wasn't hot enough.

      Blocked off mesh panels are fake and wrong and no.

        The designer's job is to make things functionally attractive. The stylist's job is to make things attractive. I'm pretty sure which one called for the fake mesh and in my opinion has a little too much pull at Audi. To be fair, you see it on way too many brands, but I hold certain brands to a higher standard than others. I expect cheese from Chrysler. Audi, BMW, etc. should know better.

        I don't like "Blocked off mesh panels" either, but it's not completely blocked suggesting it's functional. A small mesh panel would probably have looked awkward, and to open it completely would have hurt aerodynamics.

      I feel like I am seeing the convergence of the TT and a Mitsubishi Eclipse.

      "The TT RS will make "well over" 300 horsepower from its turbocharged 2.5L five-cylinder."


      "The range-topping TT is fitted with a new 2.5-litre powerplant that uses the architecture of the firm’s V10 motor. A single turbocharger helps to create around 340bhp and 330lb ft of torque, and the engine uses direct injection to improve fuel efficiency."

      looks the same except for the fake mesh.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Sounds exactly like a hotted-up Volvo T5 or R... Which is not a bad thing at all. Smooth and turbo-wooshy, but with a satisfying snarly growl at higher RPM's.

      Friggin' awesome sound.

      Seeing as how we have this car coming out as well as the RS5 pretty soon, will Audi break their "one RS at a time" tradition? I would hope so.
