Official Launch: Audi RS 3 Sportback
To add on to the fiery Audi S3 we tried a while ago, Audi has launched the answer for those who are hungry for more – the new RS 3 Sportback.
In line with Audi’s five-cylinder game, the new RS 3 offers you the adrenaline rush of 367 horses and 465 Nm of torque, the most powerful compact premium car on the market. Under the hood sits Audi’s new 2.5 litre petrol plant, capable of completing the century sprint in 4.3 seconds. The new RS 3 is mated to a seven-speed S-tronic transmission system, complimented by Audi’s Quattro permanent all-wheel drive system.
In comparison with its A3 Sportback brother, the RS 3 sits 25 mm lower, and boasts features and technology such as progressive steering, RS-specific sport suspension, and an optional Audi magnetic ride adapter damper control, all specially engineered for the RS 3. Petrol heads and enthusiasts now also have the option of mounting carbon fiber ceramic brake discs on the front axle behind the 19″ rims.
The new Audi RS 3 is available for booking at S$297,800, including COE. Prices and specifications are correct at time of press.
