Earlier this month an undisguised Audi TT prototype was spotted sporting an all-new bumper design and headlights with a thin strip of led running lights positioned below the main projectors. This new variant of the popular TT line is the upcoming ‘S’ performance version set to debut at next year’s Geneva Motor Show.

This is not the ultra-performance RS variant of the TT (//www.motorauthority.com/blog/1026555_preview-audi-tt-r rumored to get a brand new five-cylinder turbo engine with around 308hp (230kW) on tap. This latest rendering is of the TT-S, which gets a more potent version of the current 2.0L TFSI engine. Expect to see final power levels around the 270hp (201kW) mark. Torque should be about 350Nm (258lb-ft).

In addition to the uprated engine, the TT-S will be differentiated from the standard models thanks to the new front bumper and larger intakes, quad exhaust pipes, the new LED equipped headlights as well as a stiffer suspension set-up and upgraded brakes.
