The next-generation TT RS, expected to launch next year, will only come with the seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox found in the Euro-market RS3 Sportback.
Volkswagen says the installed DQ500 dual-clutch is faster, more refined, and more reliable. As well, power from the reworked 2.5;liter, turbocharged five-cylinder should rise from 360 horsepower to “around 400”.
The first-gen TT RS (pictured) only came to North America after a successful Facebook petition gathered more than 11,000 signatures in a month, and was only offered in manual transmission.
Although the new TT RS won’t be available til later next year, we could see it at the Frankfurt Motor Show in two months.
