RS out

Here’s the new double-hot Audi TT in all its glory. Want one muchly…

Audi TT RS

More pictures of the Audi TT RS

Last week we showed you a couple of teaser pictures of the new Audi TT RS, and today we’ve got the whole damn thing. In convertible and coupe form.

The most striking feature is that monster new fixed rear wing which, with any luck, should keep you firmly stuck to the tarmac. We like the deeper front air intakes, too. And the big arches. And the chin splitter. And those oval pipes that point this out as an RS. In fact, we like it all.

Audi still isn’t confirming the technical details of the TT RS, so let’s summarise what we know so far: a 2.5-litre five-pot turbo petrol engine putting out around 340bhp and propelling the TT RS to 62mph in about 4.5 seconds through Audi’s quattro four-wheel drive. Blindingly fast, in other words.

We’ll find out all the rest in Geneva next week, but for now consider this: would it be really, really poor form to stick a couple of carbon fibre sideblades on your TT RS and pass it off as an Audi R8 that got shrunk in the wash?

Now share it...
