      If you a big fan of the TTRS it will make you cry a little inside.

      While I think having the 2.5T motor in the R is a great idea, what a bizarre (and expensive) way to go about it. They basically bought two brand new cars, and now have an R with a 2.5T, an RS with no motor at all, and a 2.0T engine for sale.
      I suspect they plan on putting some other motor in the RS, but they've also stripped the wheels and brakes to put on the R so it's losing parts by the day. Seems like a really over the top way of doing things. Surely you could source a 2.5T motor from Europe cheaper than buying an entire car for it.

      why?

      With a totally useless ripped TT RS at the end.
      The most logical thing to do is to build the Golf R engine in the TT RS.
      In that case it's drivable and sellable.

      Yeah...I don't understand why anyone would do this. At the end of the day you are left with a Golf, with IMO, an inferior interior and exterior.

      Some people have too much time on their hands and no brains to know what to do with that time!!

      Somebody has to bank rolling the $110k plus in two new cars plus all of the labor and such. I would love to hear the plan for the TT-RS once the motor is taken out. Maybe they have a deal to sell the body shell to a race team that won't use the 2.5L engine? Are there any series that would run something like that? Of course someone may not car that it will cost $50k to have the first Golf R with a TT-RS engine?

      I can understand wanting a Golf R with a 2.5 TFSI, but what a bizarre way of doing it. I'd just buy this:

      Even buying a crate motor from Germany would be cheaper.
