2012 Audi RS 3 Sportback revealed - static footage
After years of anticipation, Audi has officially unveiled the RS3 Sportback.
At its heart, the car is powered by the same turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine found in the TT-RS with 250 kW (340 PS / 335 hp) and 450 Nm (332 lb ft) of torque. It is connected to quattro all-wheel drive and a seven-speed S tronic transmission which enables the 1,575 kg (3,472 lb) RS3 to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and hit an electronically limited 250 km/h (155 mph). Impressively, the car has average fuel consumption 9.1 liters per 100 km (25.85 US mpg) and CO2 emissions of 212 g/km.
To ensure stellar handling, Audi engineers installed an aluminum intensive sport suspension with MacPherson struts up front and a four-link setup out back. Furthermore, they added a high performance braking system with ventilated disks that measure 370mm in the front and 310mm at the rear.
Design wise, the RS3 is distinguished by aggressive fascias, an anthracite grille, and carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) fender flares. Other goodies include xenon headlights, a reduced ride height (25mm lower than a stock A3), aerodynamic side skirts, matt aluminum accents, a dual Exhaust system, and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the cabin is outfitted with Fine Nappa leather sport seats (with silver contrasting stitching), Piano black (or Aluminum Race) trim, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, and a revised driver information system with a lap timer.
On sale early next year, the RS3 will be priced from €49,900 in Germany.
Audi Quattro Concept raw footage - static and driving scenes
Audi is developing a production plan for the Quattro Concept as the
automaker considers building a limited series of the model, according to a
report by Autocar.
"We are rethinking standard processes to make it possible. We know how to
engineer it already," said Stefan Reil, chief of development at Quattro
GmbH, Audi's performance division, in an interview with the British car
The Quattro Concept is based on the RS5 and was created to celebrate the
30th anniversary of the original Audi Quattro all-wheel drive system. It is
powered by a 2.5 liter, 5-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 300 kW (408 PS / 402
hp) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque. The car weights in at just 1,300
kilograms (2,866 lbs) and manages the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in an easy 3.9
But Audi faces some challenges in taking the Quattro to production.
First off, Audi's partner in the Quattro Concept development is ItalDesign,
which currently has no production capability. And Audi has little
experience in building specialty editions in very low volume and it can't
set a price that is too high.
"We need feedback to see if it is possible. Audi has no heritage in
building 200-500 cars that are really exotic. But it won't be over
€100,000 (£87,600/$139,000)," Reil said in the story.
Audi may get some help, though, from sister brand Lamborghini, which has a
lot of experience in producing supercars with lots of carbon fiber
components such as the Quattro has.
Said Reil, "This car and Lamborghini are in the same exotic corner."

Subaru Impreza Concept previews next generation model
Could Subaru finally be doing away with bland front ends when it comes to
their well-known Subaru Impreza? The answer will be a resounding "yes", if
the Impreza Design Concept is well-received by the public at the Los
Angeles Auto Show this month.
This also marks the introduction of the new 2.0-liter Boxer engine with the
Lineartronic CVT. The engine is a naturally aspirated, lower displacement
version of the 2.5-liter 224-hp (167 kW) turbocharged engine used on the 2011 Subaru
As we told you earlier in the month when it was teased, the concept car has
been built along Subaru's "Confidence in Motion" philosophy. This is the
first model produced under the new strategy.
Though this first image from the Japanese manufacturer shows off a vehicle
with a bolder design, changes will certainly come before it hits the
assembly line. Neither door handles nor side view mirrors (replaced by
tiny camera stalks) are present on the concept, something that seems to
have been done to give the design study a more fluid appearance.
There are several things we would like to see the four-passenger four-door
model carry over from concept-to-production. For example, the fin-shaped
LED fog lamps work well with the single-bar grille, all against black
honeycomb mesh, seems to work on this model, as does the sporty roofline.
All four corners and the two diffusers were optimized with the help of a
wind tunnel, to make the racing heritage model more aerodynamic. Rear
lighting will "follow a sharp-edged theme ... stretched into the body sides
to join the character line along the flanks."
What doesn't really work is the hexagonal grille cut out at the front. It
makes the Impreza Design Concept almost Volvo-esque in appearance. Inside,
the platinum leather with blue piping and stitching has an unusual contrast
to the exterior's Sky Silver paint job and bright silver aluminum wheels.
Interior features include a touchscreen infotainment unit, and
multifunction steering wheel with touch panels built in.
Autonomous Audi TTS ascends Pikes Peak
Audi has announced the autonomous TT-S has successfully completed the Pikes
Peak International Hill Climb in 27 minutes.
While this doesn't sound terribly impressive, race officials estimated an
expert driver would take approximately 17 minutes to finish the 12.42 mile
(20 km) rally course in a standard TT-S. Furthermore, the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine - with 265 hp (198
kW / 269 PS) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm) of toque - enabled the car to reach
speeds of 45 mph (72 km/h).
To prevent 3241 pounds (1470 kg) of German engineering from flying off a
cliff, the TT-S was outfitted with two computers which run different
algorithms to calculate safety data and vehicle dynamics. More importantly,
an advanced GPS system - with a margin of error under two centimeters -
helped to keep the car on course.

economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features. Throughout the
video, I will highlight key styling and unique differences about the
vehicle, any available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast
car video without the good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

Audi RS3 review - Auto Express
An intoxicating five-cylinder warble reverberates around the mountains as
we accelerate out of yet another switchback hairpin, all four tyres
scrabbling for grip. Of course, the craggy walls have heard a similar sound
That's because we're driving the new Audi RS3 Sportback up the famous Col
de Turini in the south of France -- the very place where its ancestor, the
original Sport Quattro, won the 1984 Monte Carlo Rally in the hands of
ex-world champion Walter Röhrl.
Audi RS3 roadtest (English Subtitled)
Lepel de meesterlijke aandrijflijn van een TTRS in een A3 en je krijgt de
allerheetse hatchback die Audi ooit heeft gebouwd. De RS3 Sportback is een
felle rakker; de hoogste tijd om hem uit zijn kooi te laten!
