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

in Germany will be 49,900 euros.
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 RS Moments of Truth - 1983: quattro
Audi RS "Moments of Truth" is a series of highly stylized, dynamic
short-form documentaries that capture a moment in time -- visual, visceral
proof of the impact that technological innovation and risk-taking has had
on performance in a highly competitive world.
This film tells the story of Audi quattro and the advantage that four-wheel
drive technology afforded Audi race teams in the early 1980s on the FIA
World Rally Championship circuit. Audi driver and WRC Champion Hannu
Mikkola tells the story of his win at the 1983 1000 Lakes Rally in Finland
-- a grueling race full of big-air jumps and hairpin turns. Audi quattro
GmbH head of development Stephan Reil links the story to modern day
refinements of the quattro drivetrain bringing to life the technological
benefits of the crown gear and sport differential through dynamic track
footage of the all-new RS 5.

New Audi A6 review (2011)
We drove the Audi A6 3.0 TDI in Italy (Sicily). This new A6 is shorter,
wider, lower and has a longer wheelbase. But it still looks like a big A4
or a small A8?

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.
