A long-time WCF reader is taking another stab at rendering the Audi TT RS Coupe already confirmed for production.

Likely coming in 2016, the RS will represent the crown jewel of Audi's third-gen TT range and it will keep the five-cylinder engine. Technical project manager Markus Siewart has confirmed a new TT RS is on its way and will be more powerful compared to the old model which packed 340 HP (250 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) in the standard version and 360 HP (265 kW) and 465 Nm (343 lb-ft) in the TT RS Plus model.

The new one is expected to provide as much as 380 HP (279 kW) in a body that will be lighter than its predecessor taking into account the new TT has shaved off up to 50 kg (110 lbs). The added oomph and lower curb weight will enable the new TT RS to be quicker than the aforementioned TT RS Plus which needs 4.1 seconds until 62 mph (100 km/h) before topping out at an electronically-capped 174 mph (280 km/h).

Aside from a TT RS, Audi is also cooking up a third body style for the TT range which will likely take the shape of a crossover in the same vein as the TT offroad concept presented earlier this year.

Special thanks go to Hans for sending us the render!
