#CarPorn | Audi TT quattro sport concept | Auto-Moto

Stripped-out TT concept uses 414bhp 2.0 TFSI engine and will make production in low volumes.



At the heart of the concept is a 414bhp 2.0 TFSI engine running 1.8 bar of boost and producing 450Nm of torque - if it makes production that will make it comfortably the highest-specific output of any engine on sale. Power is transferred to all four wheels through a twin-clutch S tronic gearbox, with a 0-62mph time of 3.7 seconds.



The engine, which weighs only 150kg, was commissioned personally by Audi’s new head of development, Dr Ulrich Hackenberg when he started his role last summer. “When I came to Audi I asked for more power from the 2.0 TFSI, after a while we reached 400hp, but I said it wasn’t enough, so eventually we reached 420hp and I’m satisfied."

Halo: Nightfall | Live Action Trailer

Xbox has revealed their live action trailer for Halo: Nightfall, and it looks like executive producer Ridley Scott is set on reminding us why he's the godfather for the Gothic space thriller. 
Mike Colter stars in the series as Jameson Locke, a surgically-enhanced super soldier who is a rising star in a futuristic Spartan army and troubled by the military industrial complex he inhabits. The story takes place between the events of Halo 4 and the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians, in which Locke will play an integral role.

TV director Sergio Mimica-Gezzan is at the helm of the project with "Prison Break" creator Paul Scheuring providing the script. Scott and David Zucker are executive producing the project, which is said to be similar in scope to Machinima's recent Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn webseries. Halo: Nightfall will debut on November 11 through "Halo: The Master Chief Collection" and the Halo Channel.

First Look at Mockingbird's Suit from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

ComingSoon.net  Adrianne Palicki made her first appearance as Bobbi Morse on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." in the most recent episode "A Hen in the Wolf House," where she was quickly revealed to be an undercover S.H.I.E.L.D. agent working for Coulson (Clark Gregg). All the fans wondering "What's with the red outfit?" will see Palicki in full Mockingbird regalia in next week's episode, and Marvel has provided a first look at the suit in both concept and final form, which you can check out below!




"Bobbi Morse is a well-seasoned spy whose ability to slip in and out of undercover situations seamlessly will prove invaluable to our team," said Executive Producer, Jed Whedon. "But her appearance comes as a gut-punch to Hunter, as the history they share is complicated to say the least."

Costume Designer Ann Foley also shared her thoughts on Bobbi's suit, and how the comics (where Mockingbird is an Avenger) inspired the look of it, which was originally tested in concept form using a blonde Palicki as opposed to her ginger locks in the show.

"I looked at all of her comic appearances and really wanted to try to bring elements of the look from the comics into the costume that we're doing now for the show because I know it's important to the fans," remarked Foley. "It's important to me to keep certain elements, but we had to change it, obviously, for practicality, because it had to fit into our world. It had to have a kind of tactical feeling to it too so that it made sense in our universe."



The next episode, "A Fractured House," will air on Tuesday, October 28 on ABC.

moviepilot.com Early into the production of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, we did hear some rumors that Krang and his minions could be appearing the movie. Ultimately, it seems the powers-that-be decided against it, although they did commission some concept art showing that they could have looked like. Conceptual artist, Tsvetomir Georgiev created several pieces of art showing an ungraded Krang as well as some faithful renditions of Bebop and RockSteady.
