    1. Scoop: Under Hood Shots of Audi quattro Concept Longitudinal 2.5T FSI



      One of the most surprising things about the Audi quattro Concept for those of us at Fourtitude is just how many readers emailed us with conspiracy theories about the car's engine placement. As no engine shots were out there following the car's debut in Paris and subsequent showing in LA, some thought Audi may have pulled a fast one "saying it was longitudinal ...
    2. PhotoGraphic: TheTTShop.com Signal Green TT RS with TID Styling Bits



      TID Styling has posted photos of TheTTShop.com's signal green TT RS including shots we've never seen before (studio shots like the one above, detail shots like the one below). We love the color and also the detail work including pieces like carbon fiber bits from TID. Check out more pics after the jump below the next pic.

    3. Video: Audi TT RS vs. Boxster S vs. 370Z on Fifth Gear (plus the Stig!)



      Fifth Gear, that other British automotive show, recently threw the Audi TT RS up against the Porsche Boxster S and Nissan 370Z. This wasn't your typical match, including an agility test with J-turns and sliding into parking spaces, a drifting competition and finally a hot lap.

      Interestingly, ...
    4. Can't Get Enough Photos of New Audi TT RS Racecar? A Few More Sources for Your Viewing Pleasure



      Audi and the VLN endurance series both released several photos of the new TT RS racecar in its maiden race this past weekend at the Nurburgring. And while that's all well and good, a handful of photos only served to make us hungry for more. Fortunately an active user R5T posted pics and links to more shots (like the one above) in our Audi Sport forum.

    5. quattro GmbH Unveils SP4T Spec Customer Race Program Based on Audi TT RS



      In a surprise late season move, Audi has pulled the wraps off of a customer race program centered around its aluminum TT RS sports coupe. Built to VLN SP 4T specs, the car will do several more races in that series in the hands of Raeoder Motorsport who has some experience in VLN and at the 24 Hours of Nurburgring with TT and A3-based racers.

      Here's the press copy released form ...
    6. Audi Exclusive Sighting: TT RS in Malibu Blue



      As part of our ongoing series on special build cars by Audi Exclusive, this particular Audi TT RS popped onto our radar when it was featured on TT-Forum.co.uk. Malibu Blue is the reported name of this light blue metallic. Admittedly we've had a light blue Audi of our own, namely a Jet Blue S5 that we parted company with earlier this year but we're not sure yet about this one. Of course the TT RS looks amazing ...
    7. Audi Exclusive Sighting: TT RS Painted Mexico Blue



      Mexico Blue seems to be a recent favorite of Audi's skunkworks quattro GmbH and their Audi Exclusive paint-it-whatever-color-you-want-it service Audi Exclusive. We've seen this vibrant blue with a tinge of green before, just last week even on an RS 6 cruising the streets of Munich. We think such a bold color belongs best on a wilder RS spec Audi and the TT RS certainly fills the bill. Care to see ...
    8. New RS 5-Inspired Interior for TT from Audi Exclusive



      While in Germany last week we picked up a stack of new Audi model catalogs including one for the TT that's just gone through a product improvement. Perusing the pages of the book since we've returned we think we've stumbled across something that's not yet been seen or shared. We've double-checked the Audi Germany configurator and not found reference ...
    9. Audi Exclusive Sighting: TT RS in Porsche's Viper Green



      It's an acquired taste I suspect but Porsche's Viper Green is a staple amongst anyone with a Porsche 911 familiarity. Be it an early '70s long hood or a modern 997 GT3 RS, this vibrant and most primary green offers a very unique take on the "look at me damnit" color palette. Occasionally you'll find an Audi painted in the hue as we have here and, most fitting, it is painted on an RS. It's a TT RS to be specific, ...
