Audi RS3 Sportback – new images released image

A new set of images with the recently unveiled Audi RS3 Sportback has just hit the web.

One of the most interesting hot hatches money can buy these days, the Audi RS3 Sportback, is being highlighted once again, this time with the help of a new batch of images. Some artistic shots can be seen in the photo gallery below which, if you are an Audi fan, will probably become your next background images. The range topping version of the A3 is easily recognizable, getting the aluminum side mirror caps, the new rear bumper, the rear diffuser, the large air intakes, Quattro front grille, dual exhaust system, sport tuned suspension system, high performance brakes and 19-inch alloy wheels, amongst others.

The Audi RS3 Sportback’s cabin has been also upgraded and this is now receiving the carbon fiber trim or Aluminum Race, flat bottom steering wheel, contrast stitching on the Nappa leather sport seats and several other goodies. Under its hood, the 2.5 liter five-cylinder petrol engine is resting. The unit is capable of producing a total output of 367 HP (270 kW) and 465 Nm (342 lb-ft) of torque, which is connected to the 7-speed S tronic transmission, sending power to the Quattro all-wheel drive. Thanks to this setup, the Audi RS3 Sportback can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.3 seconds and it can reach an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). This can be raised, on request, to 280 km/h (174 mph).
