Audi's TT-RS Guns For…?
The Audi TT-RS is quickly becoming one of the worst kept Audi development secrets since, well, the R8. First, there was the TT-S spy shot that Audi insisted wasn't a TT-S (oops). And now we have a high-res shots of the Porsche-wannabe doing laps on the ring with what looks like The Stig behind the wheel. According to the Swedish News Agency, the RS model is easily distinguished from its less hairy-chested sib by its larger air intakes on either side of the Billy-the-big-mouth-bass grill and the two large exhausts at the rear. (OK, so the Swedes didn't mention the fish features). The TT-RS is reportedly to put some 340 – 350hp onto the pavement, and you can bet there's a Quattro system aiding and abetting the deed. The TT-RS is heading for a 2009 model year debut. Historically, Audi only offers one RS model at a time. So exactly which vehicle will be the TT-RS' natural competition? The BMW M6, M5, M3? I'm thinking the as-yet-undeclared BMW M1. You?
