Audi S3 Sportback 2,0 TFSI 265 hp Launch Control Feature in Action
As part of an extensive package of features, Audi included a launch-control mode that gives you the best possibility of testing the real 0 to 100 km/h values. This feature requires the rather popular DSG. Here is how it works:
Step 1: Disable ESP
Step 2: Floor the brake all the way
Step 3: Shift into S-Drive
Step 4: Continuing to hold the brake, full throttle on the gas
Step 4: Release the brake
While the RPMs won't go much higher than 1800 before actually releasing the brake, the Audi S3 Sportback takes off like a rocket as soon as you do let go of the brake. In less than 6 seconds (official manufacturer value: 5,6s) you will surpass the 100 km/h mark and after approximately 22 seconds you will go past 200 km/h.
Needless to say, this is one sweet ride and the S3 Sportback never ceases to amaze regardless of what may be down the road.

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

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 finishes.
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 Cabriolet.
Deliveries of the RS 3 Sportback will begin in early 2011. The base price in Germany will be 49,900 euros.
