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 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. ► If you love cars, you should subscribe now to YouCar's channel: http://urlz.fr/lEd Go ahead, it's free! All the Best.

Audi RS3 review - Auto Express
Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/firstdrives/265408/audi_rs3.html#ix zz1HFobw1Tx 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 before. 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.

BMW M135i v Audi RS3: Road, Track, Drag-race. - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
BMW's M135i undercuts the RS3 by £10k in base spec, it's only 20hp down and weighs 150kg less. Can a sub M-car beat Audi's premium fast car representation?





Audi RS3 Sportback v BMW 1 Series M Coupe Drag Race - Auto Express
Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/grouptests/269563/bmw_1m_coupe_vs_r ivals.html 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 six-speed manual.
