Audi RS3, new images released image

A fresh batch of photos with the compact hot hatch coming from Ingolstadt, the Audi RS3, has been released by the German based automaker, recently.

Audi has managed to place the new RS3 into the spotlights once again, with the addition of a large photo gallery, showing the hot hatch from just about every angle and highlighting some of its features. The new Audi RS3 is currently available in a five-door Sportback version only and it is the range topping version of the A3. This is instantly recognizable as it is getting a new front bumper, a new rear bumper, a rear diffuser, large air intakes, aluminum side mirror caps, a Quattro front grille, a dual exhaust system and 19-inch alloy wheels.

The Audi RS3 is also packing the sport tuned suspension system, the high performance brakes and an updated cabin too, with the flat bottom steering wheel, the carbon fiber trim, the contrast stitching on the Nappa leather sport seats, carbon fiber trim and so on. The most important feature of the car is found under its hood, where the 2.5 liter five-cylinder petrol burner is found. This is capable of producing a total output of 367 HP (270 kW) and 465 Nm (342 lb-ft) of torque, making it more powerful than its main rivals, the M135i and the A45 AMG. The engine is connected to a 7-seed S tronic transmission, sending power to the Quattro AWD. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration is made in 4.3s and top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph), risible to 280 km/h (174 mph).
