But that presumption might soon be a thing of the past, if Audi Tooling has its way. The toolmaking arm of the car maker, together with other family members from Volkswagen, has just practically 3D printed the Grand Prix sports car Audi Union Typ C. More than just a throwback to history, the feat was made possible by actually printing the parts using metal materials.

Volkswagen got caught emissions cheating: What you need to know

Volkswagen's attempts to cheat the Clean Air Act in the US have proved shocking to diesel drivers thinking they were helping save the planet, but things are going to get even more complicated. The news that independent testing had spotted nitrogen oxide levels as much as 35x higher than the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) permits from select VW and Audi cars, and that the discrepancy came down to some testing trickery, has left the German behemoth in hot water.

Question is, has two decades been generous to the TT or just put it firmly into middle-age.
