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 official promo - narrated
More confirmation that Audi will be taking the Quattro model to production
has surfaced recently.
According to a recent report the Quattro Concept was spotted with
design-studio license plates on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu,
California. The car was being escorted to a photo shoot by the California
When questioned Audi employees let it slip that the car was, indeed, headed
The result of the video shoot is this video fully edited.
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."

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the debut of the quattro, Audi is
presenting a show car at the 2010 Paris Motor Show that moves a futuristic
interpretation of this concept into the fast lane: the Audi quattro
concept, a thoroughbred driving machine with 300 kW (408 hp), five-cylinder
turbocharged engine, a lightweight body

2011 Audi RS3 Sportback Driving
http://www.eurocarnews.com - Audi AG - The 2.5-liter engine in the RS 3
Sportback will thrill passengers thanks to its tremendous pulling power and
its voracious revving up to 6,800 rpm. The guttural roaring and growling,
backed by the signature rhythm of the five-cylinder firing order make up
the classic Audi soundtrack. A sound flap in the Exhaust branch intensifies the sound even
further. The flap is controlled via the standard Sport button, which also
varies the engine response.
Powerful five-cylinder engines have a long legacy at Audi. In the 1980s,
racing cars and production cars used them to edge out the competition. Even
the first Audi RS model, the 1994 RS 2, had a five-cylinder engine. The
2.5-liter unit, already part of the TT RS specifications, now redefines the
state of the art, having recently been named "International Engine of the
Year" by a high-ranking jury of automotive journalists.
The 2.5 TFSI delivers 250 kW (340 hp) from a displacement of 2,480 cc: a
specific power output of 100.8 kW (137.1 hp) per liter. The maximum torque
of 450 Nm (331.90 lb-ft) is readily available at the low end of the rev
range, around 1,600 rpm, and remains constant up to 5,300 revolutions.
These general parameters yield excellent acceleration and elasticity
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
