details of the new tt have been released. 3.2 vr6 engine rated for 250hp.
most novel aspect is the use of a twin clutch 6-speed transmission (a la
quattro sport s1). this allows pre-selection of the next (sequential) gear
while the previous gear is engaged. alternate gears are arranged on 2
layshafts (1-3-5, 2-4-6) to alow this to happen. it looks as though the
transmission is "automatic" (a la smg).
more details will be forthcoming in the next months. release early next
other features are rs4 brakes,and visually beefer appearance.
