The all-new Audi RS3 Sportback has returned, emboldened by the latest 400PS five-cylinder TFSI engine. Featuring the world's most powerful production five-cylinder 2.5 TFSI engine, it launches the all-new Audi RS3 Sportback to a blistering 400PS, 480Nm of Torque, reaching 0-62mph in just 4.1 seconds.
And... if the rear roof spoiler and two tailpipes don't make this model stand out, the honeycomb front grille and flared front wheel arches most decidedly will. Complete with RS Sport suspension and RS braking system as standard, this latest RS model makes for an ideal everyday sports car.
The mighty engine’s output is in the form of the S tronic dual-clutch transmission and quattro permanent all-wheel drive, which distributes the drive torque variably between the axles. The share it allocates to the rear axle automatically varies depending on speed and cornering forces, but its bias can also be influenced by the driver using the standard Audi drive select system, which can also influence the response of the steering, transmission amongst others.
The flared front arches, evocatively link the all-new Audi RS3 Sportback back to the original 80's Audi quattro; with subtle styling updates matching across the whole A3 range, the RS3 Sportback has the right air of power and purpose, making it an everyday Sportscar.
Single-frame grille, in gloss black honeycombe mesh with large air inlets are complemented by the re-designed blade in the bumper, making the car appear even more broad-shouldered. To the rear, an elongated roof spoiler, diffuser insert and RS exhaust system complete the look.
Featuring Audi Virtual Cockpit, the all-new Audi RS3 Sportback makes you feel like a racing driver – 12.3-inch digital display, high-resolution instrument panel and RS specific screen, displaying torque and G-Force, whilst the MMI Navigation Plus System offers touch-sensitive control.
