Makes two years was presented the Audi TT quattro Sport Concept, a prototype that surprising by what was under the hood. A engine turbo of 2.0 liters and four cylinders that developed a power disproportionate to their dimensions. It came with 420 HP and 450 Nm and made us ask ourselves where the downsizingwould come. Even is started to speculate that this mechanical could get to a model of production in a future, for example to the Audi TT RS.

Although finally this model was presented and opted for a motor of 2.5 liters and five cylinder. And this is an indication that the mark of the four rings at the moment it will forego the project that enhanced the EA888 block. The reason would be no different to that which has motivated that VÄG group is removed from the head to the Volkswagen Golf R400. The Dieselgate still leaves traces in the German giant.

The truth is that it would have been interesting getting to know that four-cylinder engine with single 2.0 liter exceeded the 400HP. The closest thing that we found in a street model is the 2.0 TFSI of 310 HP Audi TTS. Although according to the responsible of engineering of quattro, Stephan Reil, many of them news that brought have been incorporated directly in the 2.5 TFSI from the TT RS. He added that the costs of doing a four-cylinder of these features would have been greater.

While is discarded them engines small, already is think in other mechanical for models sporting. Now that the atmospheric V8 4.2 liters has also been withdrawn, it sets its sights on the new V6 turbocharged who came with the Porsche Panamera. Apparently the Audi RS4 and RS5 could benefit from these blocks of 3.0 and 2.9 liters with a power that still would be seen. It is also the bet for a future Audi R8 V6.
