Scheduled to make its international debut at the Geneva Motor Show in a few short weeks, the Audi TT-RS got a head start on the auto-lovin’ festivities by bearing a little bodywork in a series of teaser images. Expected to hit the European market during the latter half of 2009, Audi has yet to confirm a drop date for the TT-RS in the U.S. – but that doesn’t keep us from lusting. Equipped with a turbocharged 2.5L 5-banger, the AWD TT-RS puts out 340 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque and is expected to reach 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds. Offered standard with a 6-speed manual transmission, the TT-RS also comes optionally equipped with Audi’s DSG twin-clutch transmission which affords drivers the control of a manual transmission and the luxury of an automatically operated clutch.

As far as exterior revisions are concerned, aside from the obligatory RS-badging and requisite performance modifications (ie: larger side sills, air intake, etc.) we don’t expect the RS to be a drastic departure from the base TT. Unfortunately, we still don’t have a clear idea of what the new Audi’s body profile will look like, a few quick up-fender-skirt shots are enough to tide us over until March.

    Even though the newer editions of TTS are far more refined in terms of driving and styling, it was these older models like 2010 and 2009 that were really quick. The current 0-60mph acceleration time is around 5.3 seconds, which is almost worst in its class. While the older ones could accelerate in 4.5 seconds as mentioned above.
