The turbocharged five-cylinder is staying put.
The announcement isn't exactly groundbreaking, but we’re still glad that Audi is forging ahead with the next-generation high-performance TT. Audi executives have now confirmed that the new TT RS will be unveiled next month at the Paris Motor Show. We can also confirm that it’ll be powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine. A specific power output wasn’t mentioned but the previous-gen TT RS was rated at 335 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque.
It also had a turbo five-cylinder, but Audi was forced to completely redesign it in order to comply with emissions regulations. The new TT RS, in a nutshell, will be lighter, more powerful, and with greater fuel efficiency than its predecessor. In related news, Audi has confirmed the next-gen TT Roadster will also be making its debut at Paris.
