The Audi TT-RS was introduced back in 2009 in Geneva as the highest output version of the TT compact sports coupe wearing the appropriate aggressive bodywork. The RS is powered by a direct injected and turbocharged 2.5 Liter five cylinder engine that makes 335 HP and 330 lb-ft of torque which helps launch the TT-RS from 0 to 60 MPH in only 4.6 seconds on its way to a 155 MPH top speed.
The most powerful version of the sporty TT is ready to be launched. The TT-RS will make its official debut this autumn at the Paris Auto Show. This latest spy shots were taken at the Nurburgring, where the latest version of the TT-RS was making the final testings.
The TT-RS will be powered by twin-turbo version of the current 3.2L V6 engine or a brand new five-cylinder turbo unit with output between 340 and 365 hp.
About the existence of the TTRS and RS5 coupes we already knew, and now here’s another details about the two new future sports-cars from Audi. The TTRS will be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show this autumn, while the RS5 will come sometime in 2009.
According to Fourtitude, the TTRS will be powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liters 5-cylinder engine that delivers 350 hp.
About the RS5’s powerplant they only make speculations like everyone else. First choice is a V10 Twin Turbo engine used in the RS6, but they say is an unlikely choice. Second choice is V10 Normally Aspirated, same choice as the Road & Track magazine. Third choice is a 4.2-liter FSI engine that delivers 450 hp and 500 ft-lbs. And finally a V8 Normally Aspirated engine that delivers 420 hp. But which one will actually power the RS5 no one knows at the moment. Only time will tell!
