    Forget for a moment the speedster style screen and lack of weather equipment, because this Audi ‘TT clubsport quattro study’ gives us a huge clue as to what a future TT RS might look like.
    The tougher-looking front grille and larger intakes feed the engine with cooling air, and it is not the 3.2-litre V6 that you might expect.

    Instead this TT features a highly tuned version of the 2.0-litre TFSI. Power is boosted from the S3’s already heady 260bhp to a quite staggering 300bhp. All that power is channelled to the road through Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system. A dual-branch exhaust system with RS4 aping oval tailpipes features around the rear – ensuring anyone following is aware of the TT’s potency. Sitting on a significantly wider track than the standard car, the wheelarches have been extended accordingly. They are filled with 20-inch wheels and tyres, the orange callipers for the larger ceramic disc brakes clearly visible behind the multi-spoke alloy wheels. The interior shares its gearlever surround with the R8.

    However, unlike Audi’s supercar, the TT has an S tronic gearbox utilising the DSG double-clutch arrangement, which should deliver split-second shifts. The bucket seats and flat-bottomed steering wheel are borrowed from the RS4. Aluminium and retina-straining orange are used to trim the interior and a Bang and Olufsen BeoSound 2 MP3 player is incorporated into the central of the TT’s three airvents. Open the bonnet and rather than the usual plastic mouldings, Audi has left that turbocharged 2.0-litre engine naked. Many of the auxiliary controls like the ABS and air-conditioning modules have been moved out of the engine bay for purity of line and purpose, a strut brace spanning the suspension turrets for added stiffness.

    That clean design is also apparent outside where Audi has removed the door handles and adopted remote control operation. Interestingly, Audi claims to be considering a short production run. One thing is almost certain though, that being that most of the enhancements featuring on the TT clubsport ‘study’ will be seen on a future S or RS TT model

    would be interesting if they put that engine in the new S3!
