Audi is working on a hot version of the new TT – and here's further proof.
Back in August we caught a TT S testing. Audi claimed it was simply the new TT in sporty S-Line trim. But look behind the RS4-style alloys of the car in these shots and you can see RS brake callipers. Besides the beefy brakes, this TT also has carbonfibre door mirrors.
The new TT S is believed to be running a 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder engine – reminiscent of the original Quattro's powerplant.
It is thought that the in-line five will be turbocharged – possibly with two sequential turbos to provide seamless urge. Power is expected to be up to 350bhp, put down through the TT's quattro four-wheel-drive system. The transmission will be either a six-speed manual or S-Tronic system.
Expect the new top-of-the-line TT to be good to drive, too. The standard TT is a league ahead of its predecessor dynamically, and the new RS4 shows Audi now knows how to make its fast cars really handle.
Expect a price of around £30,000 when the TT S goes on sale next year.
