Audi TT RS with 340HP 2.5Turbo - Official Photos, Details and Engine Sound

|
Update: New Audi TT RS High-Resolution Image Gallery - Click Here -

In addition to the official teaser shots and an audio clip of the TT RS' five-pot turbo that were released today by Audi, thanks to one of Carscoop's readers, we now have a full set of pictures as well as more detailed information on Ingolstadt's hottest ever TT model. To be officially revealed at next month's Geneva Motor Show, the TT RS will be available in both Coupe and Roadster forms. Reviving the spirit of the original Quattro models of the 1980's, Audi has equipped the TT RS with a new turbocharged 5-cylinder engine with direct-injection and a capacity of 2.5-liters.

The sportiest TT ever uses Audi's quattro all-wheel drive system with power being transferred through a six-speed manual gearbox. In terms of performance, Audi says that the TT RS will accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 5,0 seconds with its top speed being electronically limited to 250 km/h or 155 mph.

Ingolstadt's engineers also beefed up the TT RS's braking system and revised the car's suspension and electronic stability control systems.

2010 Audi TT RS On the outside, the TT RS gets a rather subtle treatment over the 272HP TT S model that includes slightly larger front air vents, a distinctive rear diffuser, a fixed boot spoiler and twin-spoke alloy wheels. Inside, there's a leather multifunction sports steering wheel and sports seats in a combination of Alcantara and leather

Both the TT RS Coupe and Roadster will be available in European markets during the second quarter of the year. To the misfortune of North American buyers, Audi has not approved the TT RS for U.S. launch.

Many thanks to Garcia for the photos and info!

Just a thought, why make the first pic a hyperlink (i.e. not zoomable?)?? More often than not, the first pic is the juicier of the lot and as is this time, I cannot see the bigger pic, so I have to go to google Images looking for it, instead of just clicking on it here, to see the bigger pic.

Please, consider the change :)

Golf with panties, a true hairdresser's car with a bolted-on powerful engine.

Henri, when we have a larger version of the opening photo we include it in the gallery. In this case, the photos below have been resized, meaning that, in their original format, they were the same size as the one above.

Golf with panties?True Hairdressers car??I dont think so! The stats show this to be a very capable car and worthy of all the praise it has received.Is an M3 also a hairdressers car? I'd like to see what you consider to a supercar :)

Finally Audi offers an engine worthy of this chassis.

Certainly not a hairdressers car. More like 5/8ths of an Audi R8! Slightly disappointed by the sound in the clip - sounds a little muted for my tastes, though I'm sure that's something the aftermarket will cater for.

It's going to be faster than the evo X, the new focus rs, the impreza wrx sti, the cayman s, the z4 M and the old M3. The slk 55 AMG is faster but it has a 5.4L engine and is much more expensive. I would definately buy the TT RS if i had the money!

Faster than the 370z too...

at 60 to 65 grand (the price of basic cayman) you get carera 4wd performance under 5 sec/280 kmh/under 11 sec 400 m car that has equally good (to porsche) and tripple flawless life expectancy (300000+ kms)...
the guy that made the hairdresser comment obviously hasn't owned an audi so he is excused by me...
owning an 2007 S3 i'm wondering though whether the tt-s is a better choise overall being better suited for everyday use,having the same (other than engine) technical specs (magnetic ride etc) and pressumably being less fuel-"thirsty" not mentioning the price difference...

I'm owning a TT-S and with a kit of B&B of 2300 E (TUV homologated) you reach 326 Hp, 0-100 4.7, max 270 ..
Price of the RS is too high ..

0-100mph will not be faster than a Cayman S, neither will it be faster on track.

Same P:W but more drivetrain loss and the car will always be hobbled by the Haldex diff and the fake 4WD.

the coupe is definitely suitable for long distance journey..

it got everything... power,style,...

I'm sorry to say, that the Cayman comes in short... Nothing in this pricerange has the performance of the TT-RS. It weighs 1450kg and with and ECU upgrade, it will come in excess of 420hp............I know that Audi has tested this engine to over 600hp in an engine testbed, with std. internals. So there are plenty of room for playing around. It will come in under 3 kg pr hp with 500hp upgrades, and then it will be seriously fast! But still 1/3 of the price of the GT3-RS or GT2....
