    • Don't pay attention to the TT-RS plus news going around, the major autoblogs all got it wrong

      If you read other sites (it's ok, we don't blame you, we do too) the major Audi news going around is that Audi is developing a new lighter and more powerful TT-RS. Well, we brought you news of this car back in March of this year. You may have realized the TT-RS for the USA had a slight horsepower bump versus its European counterpart. The leak from earlier in the year shows that the European version will be bumped up to the horsepower levels of the USA version from its current 335 BHP level.

      As far as lowering the weight and a more hardcore version, Quattroholic asked Audi earlier this year about this TT-RS "plus" and were told it is simply a mild refresh to bring the European version up to the horsepower levels of the American TT-RS. So, we hate to spoil the rumor going around but just want to remind you that the big guys often get things wrong. And we little guys love to remind them of it.

        How so? All they are doing is bumping the HP to make it like the US car.

        That's fine, a good % of my posts would qualify too.
