Next-generation Audi RS3 will arrive as a sedan

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 26, 2014

Audi unveiled the first RS3 Sportback back in November 2010 but we can’t say that the vehicle was a bestseller. That’s why Audi will follow a new strategy and according to Audi of America president Scott Keogh, the next-generation RS3 will arrive as a sedan. Of course, this is not quite a secret as earlier this year the German manufacturer unveiled at the 2014 Worthersee the A3 Clubsport Quattro Concept.

Based on the S3 Sedan, the concept car was powered by a 2.5-liter TFSI petrole engine that delivered 525 hp (386 kW) and a maximum torque of 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque available between 2,300 and 6,000 rpm.

Besides the powerful, the concept car came with an impressive design consisting of a new front bumper with large air intakes, a rear bumper with a stylish air diffuser, oval tailpipes and 21-inch alloy wheels.

Behind the front wheels there are 370 mm brake discs. If you don’t remember, the RS3 Sportback used the same 2.5-liter TFSI engine that produced 340 hp (250 kW) and 450 Nm (331 lb-ft) of torque.

The engine pushed the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.6 seconds, while top speed was limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.
