Audi Could Launch RS3 This Year And New TT In 2014
Audi could launch new RS3 this year, in a important auto show in autumn 2010. The model will develop around 340 HP and could use the current TT-RS engine.
Some rumors announced that Audi will launch the new generation of RS3 in this year. Will be the flagship of the A3 model and will develops 340 HP from a 2.5-liter engine with five-cylinder turbocharged.
The unit should be taken directly from the TT-RS and provide over 70 HP more than S3, the most powerful version of A3 now available. According to this rumor, the new RS3 will debut this year at the Paris Motor Show.
Audi RS3 is only one of the future models that prepares the Ingolstadt automaker. Thus, there are still plans for a compact roadster named R4, A1 new engine versions, including a hybrid and a A2 successor. The A2 successor has been confirmed by Audi, so chances are that the R4 could exit on the market in coming years.
However, a zero-emission version of the R8 could go into production in 2012, which means that the production of the R8 e-tron version that will run on the 24 hours race, will be available to customers.
The TT successor will debut in 2014. The model would represent the third generation of this model and will debut in the coupe version. Subsequently, the guys from Audi will develop also the convertible version of the third generation of the TT, as they have done until now for this model.
The first information about this model suggests that the doors will be the same size as those used by the present generation, and the chassis and the engines will be similar to those used by the future R4.
