Audi has introduced an S Line Competition version of the TT that dresses things up with the S Line sport and exterior packages, plus a few extra features at reduced cost. Globally, it can be fitted to any TT with up to 211 horsepower, which for us means the standard 2.0 TFSI coupe since we don't get the diesel or smaller gas engines.

With the new Audi A4 sedan gracing stands at last week's Frankfurt Show, Audi is attempting to inject some life into the older-shape A4 Cabrio with the addition of the S line sports specification for the 2.0L TFSI model. Available only in the UK from December onwards, the special edition packaging adds Pearl Nappa leather, a Bose stereo system, parking sensors, and xenon headlamps.
Even though the Audi A5 and S5 won't be available until spring of '08, H&R, purveyors of all things sprung and stiff, have announced the availability of lowering springs for both models. When you do finally get your hands on Audi's newest hotness, you'll be able to choose a drop of 10-35 mm, depending on the package.
Rumors have been floating around that Audi is planning on chopping the Lamborghini Gallardo's V10 in half, throwing a turbo on it and installing it into the new TT coupe. The resulting 2.5-liter, turbocharged five-cylinder would produce an estimated 350 horsepower, according to Todd Lassa from Motor Trend who reported the project was being developed under the working name of TT-Lambo.
Audi has released photos of its S-line package for the new TT coupe. Visually, the S-line is differentiated from its stock bretheren by larger intakes in the front bumper, a carbon-fiber chin spoiler located under the shield grille, a new carbon-fiber rear valance and naturally, the ever-so-subtle S-line badging on the front fenders. Oh, and those seven-spoke wheels? We dig.
