Audi's not hanging around with its new sporting offspring; it's already preparing the hotter TT RS, caught here in our latest spy photographs.

Purportedly a TTS, there are a few telltale giveaways that raised our suspicions. Like the fact that it's got Audi's larger, wave-patterned and drilled brake discs (currently unavailable on the S), RS brake callipers and - our man with the long lens observed - RS-spec dampers under the mostly aluminium bodywork.

Our best guess? That this is indeed a late prototype testing the 2016 Audi TT RS running gear.

Audi TT RS: the spec

CAR magazine's information is that the new RS will be positioned above its predecessor, seen here benchmarking against the new car.

How much more focused will it become? We understand it'll run the 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbocharged up to 380bhp and 406lb ft of torque, making for one very rapid TT. One rivalling the Porsche 911 Carrera S more than the boggo Carrera - for 40% less cash.

Expect a styling and aero package to differentiate the TT RS further from the bread-and-butter models coupes and roadsters. The last fast TT (reviewed here) sported a fixed rear wing, regular RS twin oval exhuasts and some pretty scintillating performance figures: it could sprint to 62mph in just 4.1sec and we'd anticipate the new one being faster by a margin.

Styling looks good, but not feeling those wavy brakes.
