Just last week we spied a DTM-inspired Audi TT RS Race Car, and now it’s hit the track and looking menacing as ever. Now that we see the TT RS Race Version in its natural environment, we think it’s safe to toss around the idea that Audi Motorsport might be bringing a TT back to DTM.
Raeder Motorsport did some thorough testing at the Endurance Championship at the Nürburgring in the SP 4T class on the TT RS. It will continue racing on October 30th at the same event.
The TT RS Race Version was driven by Marc Hennerici of Germany, five-time VLN winner, and Christopher Miles. It sports a modified 2.5L turbocharged five-cylinder engine, enhanced with components from the Audi R8 LMS.
We’re loving the direction that Audi is going with their newly revamped TT RS and we look forward to seeing more race entries from them in the near future.

Mmmm, a DTM-inspired Audi TT RS! What more could we ask for?
The new Audi TT RS is an impressive machine in street trim, so it’s no surprise that it’s becoming a platform of choice for various racers around the world.
Set to debut in the VLN Endurance Series over in Europe this TT-RS Endurance racer gets a seriously DTM-style widebody that’s aggressive from bumper to bumper. Audi has teamed up with Raeder Motorsports for badass racing machine, which will first take to the track during the last two rounds of the Endurance Championship held at none other than Nürburgring.
We’ll keep our eyes out for videos of this mean TT RS taking to the track.
