The TT 3.2l is 250hp v6. The z4 Si is 3.0l 255hp i6. The z4 M is 330hp 3.2l MONSTER. That's why it's just not a fair comparison lol.

I agree. Wasn't Audi going to stick the V8 in the TT? If so, that would be a fair competition!

ah, i see, i thought they upped it a little bit, 250bhp does seem a little weedy compared to what can be done to that 3.2 v6!
all i know, is, thats what cars they will use!!!!

I hope so. It would be awesome if they gave it a nice rwd instead of that crappy fwd on old TTs. The quattro and v8 together would be too heavy on a TT I'm guessing.

too right, unless the whole car (body panels, chassis etc etc) was made from aluminium or carbon
which would mean, in the end, that youd be buying a tt with bentley money!

The new tt roadster is on there. Looks really good but it is keeping the same 3.2l 250hp engine.

It's funny actually, a couple of years ago on CF I read that in the states the TT had RWD before AWD. I obviously said about it being FWD to start with, but whoever it was who said this was sure it had RWD. Whoever finds the thread in question gets loads of e-doughnuts....

In the UK it was initially FWD, then AWD became standard. I'm not too sure about the US, although what Bronxie says kind of makes me think it was the same over there. I honestly don't remember what the outcome of that other thread was

The 1.8 comes standard with FWD, quattro as an option. The 3.2l comes standard with quattro.

No outgoing audis in the states have RWD. All are FWD or quattro.

I don't think we have any FWD TT's in the UK, I think all of them are AWD now!
