It's indeed out of the ordinary, and there are a lot of people out
there who will dislike it.  Most of the people that I have shown the
TT brochure to, though, have been impressed and would like to have one.

Your memory is a bit hazy here -- the Audi Quattro Spyder was to be
equipped with the Audi 2.8L V6, either in standard or TDI form.  The
one with the W12 engine was the Avus.  For that matter, the Spyder
would have been a lot more expensive to produce than the TT, and the
Avus would have been right there in exotica territory.
