Spied on a number of occasions undergoing testing at the Nurburgring, the new Audi TT RS is expected to be revealed and go on sale sometime next year. While recently spied prototypes have been bathed in camouflage, a reader at World Car Fans has created the following rendering of the car which is likely to be almost identical to the real thing.
At the front, the German sports car has been designed with a significantly bolder and more in-your-face bumper. The new fascia includes enlarged air intakes made up exclusively of sharp and aggressive lines. Elsewhere, a modified front grille will be installed with a black hexagonal grille and silver surround.
Other visual modifications include the implementation of bolder side skirts and a prominent fixed rear wing. At the rear, the car will inevitably receive a diffuser, new bumper and a set of characteristic oval-shaped tailpipes.
From a powertrain perspective, the new TT RS is tipped to receive the same 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder engine as the latest RS3 Sportback. According to our sources, that engine could result in a total of 380 hp, putting the new Audi TT RS right in line with the new BMW M2 itself which delivers 365 hp.
