The Audi RS 3 Sportback is back but it is limited to just 250 in the UK, priced at £39,930.
The original quota of 500 cars quickly sold out in 2011 but Audi have been persuaded to produce just 250 more cars for the UK.
Audi RS 3 Sportback is powered by a five-cylinder 2.5 litre turbo charged petrol engine which produces 340PS and 450 Nm of torque. The RS 3 is all wheel drive via Audi’s famous quattro system which is mated to a seven-speed S tronic twin-clutch transmission. With a 216PS per tonne power-to-weight ratio Audi quote a 0-62 mph time of 4.6 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.
The Standard equipment includes acoustic rear parking sensors, electronic climate control, DVD-based satellite navigation with MMI (Multi Media Interface) functionality and xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights. Optional features include front bucket seats, roof rails in matt aluminium look and styling packages in black or matt aluminium. Five exterior colours are available, plus an unlimited selection of custom paint finishes.
As the Audi RS 3 is limited to just another 250 cars therefore we would recommend you do not hang around.
