Audi TT RS racing car revealed

A new race-ready version of the Audi TT RS has been exposed that could signal the coupe’s return to Germany’s DTM touring car championship.

Developed in conjunction with Audi’s Technical and Quattro divisions, the rivalry car has been put together by Raeder Motorsport.

With its wide arches, lowered stance and big rear wing, the Raeder RS has caused speculation that Audi are considering swapping A4 for TT in the DTM and that it could also be the potential foundation for a customer motorsport package. Although Audi has yet to make any official comment on such speculation, the TT RS surely has the look of a DTM racer about it.

Though some components are shared with the larger R8 Le Mans racer, the recognizable 335bhp 2.5-litre turbocharged engine of its road going equivalent remains (meet evo's Audi TT RS long termer), while latest race-developed suspension and an aero package complete the transformation.
