Audi Releases Five S3 Exclusive Editions For America Priced From $57,250

What number would you place on exclusivity and rich features? How does a premium of at least $16,000 over the base car sound to you, because that’s what the Germans are asking for the S3 Exclusive.

Made for America by Audi’s Exclusive customization arm, the S3 Exclusive Edition will be built in just 25 examples, equally split between five colors: Glut Orange, Viper Green, Vegas Yellow, Misano Red and Sepang Blue.

Since Misano Red and Sepang Blue are available on the regular S3, they’re priced lower at $57,250 (excluding, of course, delivery fees), but still $16,150 over the base S3’s MSRP ($41,100). The other three Exclusive colors, Glut Orange, Viper Green and Vegas Yellow, carry an MSRP of $59,900 or a premium of $18,800.

The cars get color-matching interior stitching and trim decors, together with extended Fine Nappa Leather that covers seats, door armrests and kneepads, a pair of admittedly cool looking front S Sport seats, the Prestige Package and 19-inch alloy wheels.

Okay, now, go ahead, get it out of your system in the comments…
