I've heard these TT V8's are seriously underrated.

Definitely underrated, S6 did even better - 1/4 mile 12.1 sec, F10 M5 did 11.9 sec in the same review. Pretty impressive for $71K (base price) S6 as well as 4255 lbs. for V8TT + AWD with 17/26 EPA MPG.

Doubt those numbers are accurate. TT-RS clocked a 3.5 0-60 one time, but was really low 4s when others tested it. Audi can easily increase the boost on their turbo engines for the press. I'm going to wait for more results

I thought that was with the DCT that did 3.5 0-60. The low 4s was with a manual trans that we are getting.

This is just the S6/S7 just imagine what a beast the RS6/RS7 will be. The M5 won't know which way it went.

f10 m5 doing a 0-60 in less than 3.7 seconds and the 1/4mi in 11.9? thats better than a panamera turbo. and rwd handling? audi can't compete with that.

fwiw, the genesis rspec is quicker than the panamera S. lol

pretty consistent numbers Audi S6 had similar figures. The car will run out of breath in a 1 mile high speed run.

As others have said, AWD and DCT does wonders for a standing start...
