The Audi RS series is set to get another sibling as they are rolling out the RS3 Sportback. This would be the sportier version of the widely popular A3 and it surely is a fast car. This one comes with the reputation as it is designed through the Quattro design language and you also get some nice looking front that gives you the diamond shaped nose, a new front apron and new air intakes as well as front fenders. All these of course are made with CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic).
Apart from that, you also get the proud R3 emblem in front and at its rear while you will also like the roof spoiler, a rear fitted black diffuser insert and 2 nice elliptical exhaust tailpipes as well. Well, apart from that the R3 emblems which are fitted around the car so that you are constantly reminded of what you are driving, which is one of the crème de la crème of the range. Inside the car, you will also like the black elegance interior that is fitted with Nappa leathered sports seats. On top of that, the silver stitching also provides you with the contrast which adds to the elegancy.
Under the hood, you will get the 2.5 liter TFSI, 5 cylinder turbocharged engine which gets you up to 340 horsepower and 450Nm of torque. It is mated with the 7 speed STronic dual clutch transmission gearbox. This is where you will get to choose whether to drive in automatic mode or alternatively, you could switch to manual mode where you can control the gears through the paddle shifters. On the driver information screen, you will get all the data you need on top of that boost pressure, oil temperature and lap timer information as well. The unique selector lever and instruments too have been specially designed for this model.
The car sits on an all-wheel drive system and top speeds at 250 km/h limited electronically while you also get better suspension performance which have been tweaked for this model. This is translated to the car being lowered by 25mm, where it sits on 19 inch aluminum wheels with the front wheels being 235/35 series and on its rear, the 225/35 wheels.
