Audi TT to offer a diesel

Cashing in on the R10's success as a diesel-powered race car (the vehicle won at Le Mans last month, for those out of the know), the Audi TT will also be likely offered with a diesel for the new model. While it's uncertain whether the diesel will be offered in the United States (likely not), industry sources cited by Automotive News indicate that the TT will go up against the likes of the Alfa Romeo Brera's 2.4L five-cylinder common-rail diesel. The Brera's engine spits out 200 hp, but the only diesel made by Volkswagen/Audi that will fit in the TT's engine bay is the 170 hp 2.0L four-cylinder diesel offered in vehicles such as the Golf and Passat.
