The news on pricing for the TT-RS just hit the wire. It also gives us a really good indicator as to how much the RS3 will cost.

The TT carries a $9000-$9500 premium across the board over the A3 with which it shares the MQB platform. (A3: $34,500 vs TT: $43,500; S3: $42,900 vs TTS: $52500).

I’ve figured for a while the RS3 would be priced in the mid-50's, and it looks like $55k-$56k will be right on the money.

Not that I would spend that kinda dough on a FWD-based compact sedan with an automatic transmission..that is signficantly less attractive than the concept..
