It’s a good job we’re not print media here at Cars UK Towers. If we were, we’d have got through at least half a rainforest in the last few days bringing you information on the new Audi TT-RS.
First the teaser images of the TT-RS from Audi themselves, then some moody black and whites which seemed to be a leak, and now the official Audi images that seem to indicate that the moody B&Ws were in fact poor scans of these. Oh well, the only thing we’ve wasted is a finger on each hand bashing this out for your delight.
So here they are – images of the Audi TT-RS – due to launch in just a week or so’s time at Geneva 2009. And actually, it was worth the wait. We knew the ‘hairdressers’ tag no longer fitted the TT, but these pictures show just how far the TT has come from its original incarnation.
Audi confirms the TT-RS will boast a 2.5 litre 5-pot engine as we expected, boasting ‘ more than 300PS’ (295bhp in English) which is not as much as we’d guessed, but it will still take ‘nowhere near five seconds to reach 62mph’, which is bang on our prediction.
So hopefully that’s it on updates for the TT-RS until Audi let us loose on one!
