Found out some info on the TT-RS:
$65-68k, 300-350 cars coming to the US market, all coupes, all manual transmission (unofficial estimates, taken from a couple sources IEDEI has spoken with)
The sound of the 2.5L turbo 5 is amazing. I saw this car today at Waterfest (VW/Audi gathering in held in New Jersey every year). It was brought there by the Fourtitude guys and was provided to them by Audi. It is the only TT-RS in the USA at the moment. I didn’t get any chance to drive it or drive in it…however the exhaust note is simply animal…love it.
some more pics (sorry about the crappy quality…forgot my camera and took cell phone pics!):
