Audi are now taking orders for the all-new RS 3 Sportback and RS 3 Saloon. Both models are available in four specifications: RS 3, Carbon Black, Launch Edition and Vorsprung. Customers are expected to receive delivery from November.
The RS 3 is powered by a 400PS 2.5 litre engine, which has won "International Engine of the Year" nine times in a row. The award-winning engine develops 500Nm of torque and can achieve 0-62mph in just 3.8 seconds. The RS 3 can reach a top speed of 155mph, while the Launch Edition and Vorsprung models see a top speed of 174mph.
“There are fewer more iconic engines in the world than Audi’s 2.5 TFSI five-cylinder,” commented Director of Audi UK Andrew Doyle. “Now more powerful than ever before, and with class-leading performance figures to back up its striking new design, the introduction of the RS 3 Sportback and Saloon reinforce Audi Sport's commitment to setting the benchmark in every segment."
Prices start from £50,900 OTR for the Sportback and £51,900 for the Saloon.
