The engine of the year for us in the USA is most definitely the new 2.5L 5 cylinder turbo that is being introduced in the TT-RS this autumn.  The TT-RS is probably the most exciting sports car being released on US shores in 2011 after the truly remarkable BMW 1M.  I had a conversation with Audi Of America’s product manager today about the imminent launch of the car.  The details are still in their final stages, but the first cars will be delivered in the early Autumn it seems.  Exciting stuff—especially as I have a few friends ordering one.   For anyone here interested—ordering guides are now available from Audi dealers across the US—pricing, however, is not finalized yet.  The car will be arriving, however, with the upgraded 360hp “RS Plus” configuration.  It’s gonna be an epic daily driver…

So here’s a car which shares the glorious engine….but a car which will never make it to US shores in this form—-that being said, the 2013 Audi A3 which is slated for US shores may end up with an RS3 version with the same glorious engine—so all is not lost!

    I really hope that the RS3 makes it over here…

      pretty much a 0% chance for the current generation, as i’ve gathered in speaking with Audi of America people.
