Audi RS3 to be launched in 2015 image

Audi is planning to introduce a hotter version of the current A3, the RS3, which is said to make its way onto the market sometimes next year.

Rumors on Audi developing a hot version of the current A3 have been around for quite some time now and even if they haven’t been officially confirmed yet, the guys at Motor Talk are saying that the model in question will make its way onto the market sometimes in 2015. According to our source, the new Audi RS3 will get an aggressive aerodynamic package which will help it stand out from the crowd and rumors are saying that this might also get a dynamic package.

The new Audi RS3 will probably come in a five-door Sportback body style, with a 2.5 liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine under its hood, which could produce a total output of 367 HP (270 kW). The unit will be mated to an S tronic transmission which will send power to the Quattro all-wheel drive system. There is no word on the hot hatch’s performance just yet. The Audi RS3 is said to become available for order in April, next year, and the first deliveries will start in July 2015.
