Additional details and photos of Audi’s hotrod TT RS have trickled out onto the Internet ahead of its official debut at the Geneva motor show.
From the teaser information released last week, we know Audi plans to take a page from its heritage playbook by using a five-cylinder engine. We now know that the 2.5-liter direct-injection turbocharged engine will provide a meaty 340 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque. Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission are standard.
All this results in the TT RS reaching 62 mph from a standstill in less than 5 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.
From the full images, you’ll notice a new front fascia with larger air dams, LED daytime running lights, an exclusive rear bumper and a fixed rear spoiler.
Expect the standard high-performance RS fare with larger brakes and stiffer suspension tuning. The cabin features generously bolstered leather sport seats.
The TT RS will be available in Europe as a coupe and convertible. Unfortunately, the fact that the TT RS has not being approved for U.S. consumption remains. So start sending your angry notes to Audi today.
