Until now we could only speculate on the future Audi TT-RS . But thanks to a leaked dealer document we now have exact specifications of the future performance version of the TT. Set to be offered in both coupe and roadster version, the TT-RS will be available starting summer of 2009.
The future TT-RS will come with a new 5 cylinder, 2.5 liter TFSI mated to a 6-speed transmission. The engine will deliver 340 hp and over 330 ft.lbs. of torque. Fuel economy is expected to be about 23.5 mpg, which is not bad for a true sports car (the spartan Lotus Elise gets between 31 and 34 mpg.)
The TT-RS will also be distinguished by front air intakes, 18" aluminum wheels and two sets of twin oval shaped exhausts pipes. Inside customers will get aluminum air vents, RS badging on the instrument panel, and alcantara/leather sports seats with a special silver stitching.
