Caught by KGP Photography and offered as feast to our motor-hungry guys at AutoBlog, two Audi RS performance monsters were spotted laying it down on the Nurburgring in Germany. The tinier of the two, the Audi TT-RS, appears to be flaunting its production-ready form, sporting two massive front-mount intakes and chunkier fender flares. The sporty revision doesn’t stop with the bodywork either – when the TT-RS hits the market it will feature a twin-turbo 2.5L 5 cylinder engine expected to net between 350 and 390 horsepower.

Heightening the anticipation for the debut of their newest production performance offering, Audi has kept many details of the impending RS5 under heavy secrecy. On the track, the only evidence suggesting the mule that was snapped was an RS5 at all is the distinctive front-end styling – every other RS5-unique feature is cloaked under heavy S5 camouflage. Reluctant to provide even the scarcest of details, even the RS5’s engine options are still subject to speculation, with debates favoring either the 4.2L V8 from the RS4 or the twin-turbo V8 or the Gallardo-based V10 from the RS6.
