Although it seems a little bit strange, it appears that the Audi RS Q3 will make its world debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, as the first photos with the new car already emerged on the web. As you can see from the photos, the car is in fact a production version of the RS Q3 Concept, unveiled back in April 2012 at the Auto China 2012.
Although there are no details yet, we do expect the brand new RS Q3 to carry the same 2.5-liter TFSI engine found on the concept version and capable to deliver 360 hp. Mated to a seven-speed S tronic gearbox, the 2014 Audi RS Q3 is expected to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.2 seconds and a top speed of 265 km/h or 165 mph.
Moreover, the brand new RS Q3 will get permanent all-wheel drive and a brand new design consisting of a completely new, aggressively-designed body kit. Just like any other Audi RS, the interior features a flat-bottomed steering wheel, diamond-quilted leather bucket seats, a new gear knob and a new set of aluminum pedals.
