Nardo Gray RS3 Sportback by Audi Exclusive on Display at Audi Forum Neckarsulm

Meet one of the world’s fastest and coolest looking hot hatchbacks money can buy. This Audi Exclusive 367 HP RS3 Sportback is one heck of a machine.

It’s hard not to think about the RS3 whenever you have to consider which is the hottest of all hot hatches. You’ve got alternatives, sure, but few can match the grunt of this 2.5 liter TFSI-powered Audi.

The Mercedes A 45 AMG 4MATIC comes up short, as it’s slower to 100 km/h (62 mph) by 0.3 seconds and has slightly less torque.

The RS3 is able to hit the 100 km/h mark in just 4.3 seconds, which was something only a supercar could do, until the past couple of years or so.

This particular car was on display at Audi Forum Neckarsulm and features a very interesting Nardo Gray finish. We particularly love the wheels, with both gloss black and silver elements.

The interior is what you’d expect from an RS3 – simple, sporty, but the yellow stitching is a very nice touch.

Overall, lovely car with epic performance once you get off the line.

    hate the color, looks like a run-down fridge on wheels

      I want to like Audi because of the original Quattro Coupe. But that car came/went some 25+ years ago. Now their RS & S cars are just too heavy, over-styled and complicated. They are definitely “dump it before the warranty expires” kind of cars.

      How can anyone hate that color….

    • Yoyo

      No fridge comes in that color.

    This is a great look. Crossing fingers we get a color/package like this in the states on the sedan version. But….looks way better as a hatch.

    Love the exterior color and love the stitching.
