Audi has unveiled the RS Q3 Concept at the Auto China 2012 in Beijing. The concept form of the sporty crossover is equipped with the 2.5-liter TFSI engine, which could produce 260hp. This engine is also used to power the TT RS Plus. As a result, the concept can go from zero to 62 mph (200 km/h) in 5.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 265 km/h (164.66 mph).

This engine is partnered with a seven-speed S tronic gearbox. Its power is sent to the wheels through the permanent all-wheel drive and with extra help from the 20-inch wheel with high-gloss surfaces and sandblasted sides. With regards to the design, the car comes with a new front grille with special honeycombs that are slightly offset to one another deeper inside, making a unique three-dimensional effect.

The new headlights have a slight tint and it comes with chrome parts, which are dark or covered by panels of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP). In addition, the model is fitted with a new front bumper made using CFRP. Its door mirror housings are made of black CFRP, while the side windows are framed by matt aluminum trim.

The rear end gets a new front bumper with a stylish air diffuser to emphasize the sporty theme. The Ordos Blue color – a matt blue with a slight yellow tint – is used on the exterior while Fine Nappa leather and Dark blue Alcantara are used on the interior.
