2017 Audi TT RS Caught without camo

Audi fans have been waiting with bated breathe for the release of the upcoming, next-generation Audi TT RS. We’ve seen some spy shots and heard some specs, but we haven’t seen it close without any camouflage on it yet. Until now, that is, as the 2017 Audi TT RS has been caught in Spain completely undisguised.

The next-generation Audi TT RS will come with a turbocharged 2.5 liter inline five-cylinder engine that will develop around 400 hp and will be mated to either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed S-Tronic dual-clutch gearbox. This should make the TT RS good for 0-60 mph in around four seconds, but nothing has been confirmed. Quattro all-wheel drive will be standard. We also recently saw a glimpse of the TT RS’s OLED taillights at the 2016 CES (Consumer Electronics Show), which look fantastic.

Being that Audi is driving this TT RS around without camo on could tell us that the car’s debut is on the horizon, maybe even at the upcoming NY Auto Show coming up in two weeks. Or it could just tell us that someone at Audi made a bit of a mistake. Either way, we now get to take a lool at it and it looks great.

The front end looks much more aggressive than the Audi TTS and the front chin spoiler looks excellent. Notice the fixed-wing spoiler at the rear, much like the previous generation’s. I also particularly love those wheels, which look tremendous. But the TT RS doesn’t look too aggressive and isn’t too much, it just looks clean and sporty. We don’t get a great look at the entire car but, overall, the Audi TT RS seems to look very good and very promising.

I've been in love with cars since I was a kid, specifically German cars. Now I get to drive them talk about them on the internet.
