    Sounds like a good spec, but I reckon dropping this engine into an A3 Sportback or hatch, and sell it as an RS3 would make it sell like hotcakes.

    Those pics don't look very 'RS' to me.

    But if the engine and the figures are correct, I'll definetely be interested!

    Sorry this doesn't look genuine. The wheels are current option 19in 7 spoke (RS4's) but the rest looks like American Market 3.2 Quattro (S line spec which we don't have in UK).. (The 3.2 Q is the best Audi TT for handling and performance so far I think, athough TBF the 2.0TFsi FWD is pretty good and knocks spots off most of the opposition at the price). Red is not a good colour TT though, what TT have you got James?

    I've gotta say I'm sceptical about the images matching the story too. I guess if there was testing being done of a TT-RS/RS-TT it's possible that it might happen with a new engine/running-gear in a more 'standard' body, and not something more in keeping with the 'pumped-up' RS style; but for 'spy' shots they look pretty staged, and whoever's been charged with keeping it under-wraps is doing a really poor job.

    It looks to me more like someone who works at a Jaguar dealership has decided he doesn't fancy the company car, wanted something different and felt like taking some snaps of his new ride for his buds on a TT forum!

    That said though, if the text that goes with the pics has some truth in it, I like the sound of the spec! It'd be nice to see a (partial) return to five-pot given how legendary the 2.2L 5-cylinder Turbo is! Agree with jojo too - it'd make a great RS3 too!

    Regards,

    Rob.
    The truth they're trying to keep from you is that IPv6 has nothing to do with address space; we're actually running out of full stops.

    As others said it doesn't look very RS to me, the TT-S looks a lot nicer.

    Exhaust and brakes would suggest something more potent underneith the s-line exterior.
    If it's a test bed they will run it in a more conventional looking form anyway and save the final look for a show - geneva maybe?
