The Haldex system is more geared towards the rear right? The current TT-RS is still front biased if I'm not mistaken.
Well this is why I question the TT being retired after this model, to me the R4 will slot in above the current price of the TT and as such will leave a huge hole in their line up.

As for the awd system, think of it as a TT system in reverse. Also VAG have signed a contract with Haldex to develop their current system for future models, the actual Haldex system has a lot of potential and with help from the VAG group I am expecting great things to come. The very fact the Lamborghini will be using it says more about the setup than any words can from me.
