TT RS: Driving footage aplenty

In the last week or so, Audi has released some new official photos of the TT RS coupe and cabriolet as a means of whetting the appetite of car fans and automotive journalists alike. We decided to post this video instead which is just over 6 minutes of TT RS goodness with great rolling shots and plenty of  sonorous engine note from the fat oval RS exhaust pipes. 

For those that don’t know, the TT RS is the 340HP turbocharged 5-cylinder-powered coupe that Audi handed over to quattro GmbH along with the rest of the TT performance bits for the full RS treatment. As seen in the video, the TT RS will come in both coupe and cabrio body style and can be expected to return a 0 to 60 time of the mid-to-high 4 second range for those lucky enough to slip behind the wheel. The jury is, unfortunately, still out on whether the U.S. market will be privy to such an exciting pair but, given Audi’s performance image push within the States, we’re optimistic we’ll see this model by early 2010 along with the RS5.
