Audi has announced the pricing and updated specifications of the Audi RS3
According to information given by the manufacturer, the new Audi RS3 will produce 394 hp and 480 Nm of torque. This power is thanks to a 2.5 TFSI engine – the most powerful 5-cylinder engine ever which has empowered a series production Audi. Moreover, the engine is now 26kg lighter than the predecessor, making the sedan much earsier to drive and control.
The refreshed RS3 can easily whir from 0-100 kph in a neck-snapping 4.1 seconds
Audi says that with this strong power, the refreshed RS3 can easily whir from 0-100 kph in a neck-snapping 4.1 seconds before topping out at 249 kph. But more than that, the ride can definitely hit an impressive top speed of 280 kph with an extra cost.
As reported, that huge power is conveted to the wheels via a 7-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission that works in conjunction with the famed Quattro AWD system. Shift points, power delivery, steering system and exhaust flaps are all determined by Audi’s Drive Select system.
The car also receives Super Sport seats covered by black Fine Nappa leather
In addition, the new Audi RS3 also receives an RS sport suspension with front carbon brakes, adaptive dampers and Super Sport seats covered by black Fine Nappa leather. Further, comparable to the standard model, the newly introduced RS3 looks sleeker and more elegant with a 19-inch “five-arm blade” design.
Concerning the prices, the 2018 Audi RS3 Saloon will set you back from £45,250 in UK market.
