...<font color="003366"> in the powerplant department...
... Volkswagen Jetta 2.5. The block at least.
... Audi S8. Cylinder head design.
... Lamborghini Gallardo. Yep.
Needless to say, the engine will get some post-exhaust cycle help to hit the 350HP level. This "help" will make the car more receptive to chip and induction system tweaks than say, the 302HP V6 version.
There is a possibility the car will feature a hyphenated model name name rather than a letter suffix/prefix.
More details later in the coming week.</font>

Seems there is a lot of powerplants in the works for just one car. I would assume a few would replace others:
We've talked about:
200hp FWD 4cyl.
230hp Quattro 4cyl.
250hp Quattro 6cyl.
260hp Quattro 4cyl.
302hp Quattro 6cyl.
350hp Quattro 5cyl.
and this doesn't even include the diesel side of things!

make the 302 the TTS and the 350 the TTR.
Works for me, I just want the 2.5 :)

You mean TT-R in that case.
Becorse Audi will never call it R-TT i can asure you that.

230HP 2.0TFSI I4 Quattro

350HP 2.5TFSI I5 Quattro
Not all the engines will be offered at any signle time, some will be phased out and others added during the AU353/AU354/AU355's lifecycle.
Still a few years for the Audi-Lambo TT though.</font>

Not like you'll tell, but perhaps a hint?

The AU353 is the next generation TT coupe...
The AU354 is the next generation TT roadster...
The AU355 is...
BTW, I'm expecting an answer, a <i>correct</i> answer, within ten minutes of my posting of this.</font>

...<font color="003366"> Even though there's a better than even chance it'll be called a Sportback in some parts of the world.
Still not a done-deal for the U.S. or Canadian markets for the reasons mentioned in the first generation TT forum previously. But tentatively approved for Europe and most other <i>major</i> TT markets. Final AAG review set for late summer/early Autumn.
Took you longer than ten minutes though. Way more.</font>

probably too early to ask about the SB+2.5T engine eh?
PS: how much more does the 2.5t weigh than a 2.0t?
(if some clown replies with 'about .5'....)

Yes I'm most likely wrong... but you shouldn't be so sure of yourself as previous Audi model designation would make a R-TT and a S-TT more likely than not!

please don't tell me this is an '08 or later model...
I must admit, we have a plethora of engines being hinted at - 2 X 2.0T, 2 X 3.2V6, 2.5TI5 and a 2.?TDI. I'm wondering how many of these will make it to full fruition?

I see an awful lot of upcoming engines mentioned in your posts. Could you enlighten me what we'll see in the near future, e.g. till the end of 2007?
I've read lots of rumors on the upcoming engines e.g. for the TT quattro Sport, maybe you could give me some details about that as you're probably closer to the source as anyone else.

...<font color="003366"> North of fifty large (in 2006 dollars). How much north is dependent on a whole bunch of stuff, much of it out of both AAG's and AoA's hands.
It will certainly be the most expensive TT ever offered by the factory when it debuts.</font>

Like what makes it a "Audi-Lambo TT" in being different from this TFSI inline 5 model you speak of?
07-16-2006, 02:06 PM
...<font color="003366"> "Audi-Lambo" and 350 QC are one in the same. Just a term I used for the I5. Which, by the way will functionally be half an original Gallardo engine. With a better cylinder head. FSI. And a turbo.</font>

I notice Australia is red on your map; Do you make it down here much?
In the scheme of things we are a very small market, so I'm not sure how we figure on the global roadmap...
07-17-2006, 01:46 AM
that this engine would probably fit in an A3...
Could we see the long-rumoured RS3 yet?
