Senner Tuning has released their vision of what Audi‘s TT RS Roadster should be, calling it the Power TT. The name clearly comes from the added power the TT RS puts out: an impressive 430-hp (from the factory 360-hp) thanks to a reprogrammed ECU, high flow cat, valve-controlled exhaust system and an upgraded intercooler and filter setup.

The modifications don’t stop under the hood either with Senner Tuning offering a set of Work Wheels Varianza T1S in a 20×9-inch sizing, wrapped with 255/30/20 rubber. Suspension modifications are also a must with the larger wheels.

Scattered throughout the exterior of the vehicle are carbon fiber accents including a trunk spoiler and housing. Inside, carbon fiber can also be seen on the steering wheel, tach, door handles and center console.

Audi has just released some more images of its upcoming TT RS and apparently both a Coupe and a Convertible will be offered. And while the images look great, the rumors about the power output of these cars sounds even better.

Carscoop is reporting that they have obtained the official specs on the cars and that Audi’s claim of “far more” than 300hp from the TT RS isn’t far off. The high-performance version of the TT is expected to make 340hp and 333 ft-lbs of torque thanks to a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine.

The TT RS will make use of Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive system and will use a six-speed manual gearbox (YES!). There is no word on if a DSG system will be offered.

Audi says the TT RS will be capable of hitting 62 mph in less than 5.0-seconds.

Unfortunately Audi has still not confirmed the car for launch in the U.S.
