    3. Ultimate 385-hp Lightweight Audi TT RS-GT Planned as Current Car Lifecycle Matures



      Paris car magazine L'Automobile is reporting today that Audi plans to bid a fond farewell to the current generation TT in the form of stripped down hardcore version with even more horsepower.

    5. Audi Exclusive Sighting: Nimbus Grey TT RS for Sale in Germany



      Longtime TT enthusiasts need no introduction to the color Nimbus Grey. This subtly metallic shade was one of the most popular colors offered on the first generation TT. And, while quattro GmbH boss Stefan Reil tells us he's built an RS 5 with this color, this is the first time we've seen it painted on a newer TT... and a TT RS no less. The car was found for sale on Mobile.de (kind of like Germany's AutoTrader). ...

    9. Photo Gallery: Audi at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show



      We've just added a collection of photography from the 2011 Chicago Motor Show to our photo gallery section including photos of the new A6, A7 and TT RS. Chicago was the first time Audi chose to show the TT RS on its show stand and the car in question was a German-spec example built as closely to a US-spec car as one might do without fully modifying it to match.

      Expect US-spec ...
    10. First Pics: Audi TT RS Coupe at 2011 Chicago Auto Show



      We've got our first few iPhone photos from the Chicago Auto Show where Audi of America is debuting the Audi TT RS for the North American market. The US-spec TT RS is expected to arrive around the turn of the model year in an August-September timeframe.
