Reports from Europe suggest Audi is working on a high-performance version of their ever popular Audi TT. Although the current range includes a 3.2-litre V6 Quattro All-Wheel-Drive variant (using the same engine as the last generation Golf R32), Audi is hoping for more with the new killer TT (to be named TT-R).
As for the all important powerplant question, the cat is still in the bag, originally many believed the car would be powered by a twin-turbo version of the current 3.2-litre V6, but in recent days, credible sources have informed the automotive world that Audi is planning a new five-cylinder turbo unit, possibly a 2.3-litre turbo engine, and not just for the TT, but for other models as well.
Power is expected at around 230kW (no word on torque). Although there are no images of the new beast, we expect the usual power enhancement features, such as lowered suspension, more agressive body kit and beefed out wheel arches.
