► 2012 Audi RS3 (340 hp)
Big performance in a small package: the Audi RS 3 Sportback
• Five-cylinder turbo delivering 250
kW (340 hp) and 450 Nm (331.90 lb ft) of torque
• Zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.6 seconds, superior pulling power
• Seven-speed S tronic, quattro drive and 19-inch wheels
Blazing performance, compact size. Audi has added a new model to its
dynamic RS series: the RS 3 Sportback. In the great tradition of the brand,
its engine boasts five cylinders and turbocharging technology. From a displacement of
2.5 liters come 250 kW (340 hp) of power and 450 Nm (331.90 lb-ft) of
torque, with an average fuel consumption of just 9.1 liters of fuel per 100
km (25.85 US mpg). Power is transmitted to the road via a seven-speed S
tronic and quattro permanent all-wheel drive. 19-inch wheels and fenders
made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) underscore the Audi RS 3
Sportback's position of distinction.
The RS 3 Sportback comes with an array of standard equipment including the
Sport button, rear parking system, climate control, chorus radio system,
and xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights. Audi offers
customers a range of optional features: front bucket seats, roof rails in
matt aluminum look, and styling packages in black or matt aluminum. Five
exterior colors are available, plus an unlimited selection of custom paint
The new top-of-the-line model in the A3 series is already the fourth Audi
model to be built at Audi Hungaria in Győr, where it is rolling off the
assembly line alongside the TT Coupé, the TT Roadster and the A3
Deliveries of the RS 3 Sportback will begin in early 2011. The base price
in Germany will be 49,900 euros.

Audi RS3 Sportback v BMW 1 Series M Coupe Drag Race - Auto Express
Pocket rockets from BMW and Audi go head-to-head in a drag race shoot out
over the quarter mile. But which is fastest?
The BMW 1M Coupe and Audi RS3 have two things in common... Power. Each
offers an identical 335bhp and 450Nm of torque.
However, they are two very different beasts. The Audi's 2.5-litre five
cylinder turbo drives all four wheels
via a seven speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. The BMW on the other hand
has a 3.0-litre straight six twin-turbo.
And it sends all its power to the rear wheels via a good ol' fashioned
