Click above for a gallery of the Audi TT RS

Forget the teasers. Here's the rest of the car. When it premieres in Geneva next month, the Audi TT RS will arrive in both coupe and convertible bodystyles. Both are powered by a 340-horsepower, 331 lb-ft, 2.5-liter turbo five cylinder. The driver rows a six-speed stick, and quattro channels power to all the wheels. 0-62 mph takes under 5 seconds. As the teaser shots hinted, look for more aggressive front and rear fascias, LED driving lamps, and a fixed rear spoiler. As with other RS cars, the brakes and suspension are also beefed up. Inside? Typical good stuff from Audi -- you know the drill. If you missed the engine sound clip yesterday, hit the play button below. You won't be disappointed. Sadly, there are no plans to offer the hottest TT to enthusiasts on this side of the Atlantic. Bummer. We'll drool over the car in person when the festivities get underway in Geneva next month.

      Hardtop version looks sweet.

      It sounds like a miniature V10

      I love the new wheels on the one model. I hope they sell those, I'd love to see what they look like on my A4. Typical Audi interior; stunningly beautiful and simply better than anything in it's class.

      five cylinder is back and it sounds bad ass :)

        I see what you did there.

        This thing is glorious. Most anticipated car next to the Fisker Karma, at least for me.

      [tantrum] Mommy, why can't WE get the TT-RS HERE and NOW!? [/tantrum]
      This car has a sexy bodyshell, interior, and powertrain. However, what is a bigger concern to me is general Audi reliability. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the A4 and A8 seem to be pretty good, but the A5, A6, and TT aren't.

      I have nothing against the TT (old or new), I just couldn't see myself paying the premium for any of them. Even the standard TT 2.0 is quite expensive at $35,200 (MSRP) and all you're paying for is the technology of a GTI in a new shell (albeit a sexy one). Tack on quattro and the top tier package and you're literally pushing $50k. I'm sorry, but even if I were very wealthy I'm not sure I could bring myself to pay $50k, or more, for a TT.

      I personally find this a really awesome car. The body looks amazing, and that engine sound was beautiful.

      But as a suggestion, anyone else here hoping for a metal top on the convertible? That would be the real kicker on this car.

      I'll keep my 08 TT 3.2 6spd S-line, still the best looking of the MKII TT's.

      I wish I made more money.
