The new TT looks so much better than the earlier model. Slightly angular, done away with some curves and this is a classy looking coupe!

Dude that 3.2 is such a purring revvy engine. Sigh I wish i had the R32 instead of the 2.8 i've got!

I think that's right. Now that you've mentioned it, I did read something about an award on MSN auto. Pretty impressive job by Audi!
The grill & the lights are an extended version of the Audi RS8 ( is that what its called, the new roadster from Audi? ).

yeah... traffic is mess nowadays in most places. But on the expressway at least you probably still managed some decent speed. so when are you managing the other two? the boxter and the slk?

Audi has a new fast car the R8. the one with the v8 engine in it. Is this what you're talking about?

Oh, really? Thats odd.
I mentioned RS8 the 1st time,since thats the name I had seen on a couple of sites. People used to mix it up with the Mazda RX-8, and actualyl sounds almost the same when you speak the names out fast.

Eitherways, the TT really looks good,all with just a few changes to the exterior. Does it sound pretty good as well?

Lets put it the other way around. THe R8 resembles a TT. More like a lower+flattened+widened TT with 4 or 2 more cylinders.
