Audi’s upcoming hot hatch is expected to use an upgraded 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine.
It’s not often we see an Audi RS3 Sportback (tuned or not) hit 316km/h (196mph) on the highway.
ABT’s not-that-highly-tuned RS3 Sportback is quicker to 62 mph than a stock Ferrari F430.
Is the Mercedes-AMG G63 potent enough so as to keep up with much lighter sports cars? Apparently so.
This RS3 Sedan turned out to be a formidable rival to the much more expensive Italian exotic.
The rumored five-door coupe version of the Audi A3 is expected to arrive in 2020 with a wide range of powertrain options.
ABT will also display other tuned cars at the Essen Show, which kicks off in Germany on December 1.
The Audi RS3 Sedan and BMW M2 Competition are not exactly direct competitors to the Camaro 1SS 1LE but they help prove a point.
Not even the quickest supercars can keep up with this Audi RS3 in reverse!.
Watch the Schaeffler 4ePerformance Concept put the Audi R8, Lamborghini Huracan Performante and Porsche 911 GT2 RS in their corners.
The hot hatch, which in all likelihood is tuned, crossed the finish line ahead of the Italian supercar.
Both the RS3 Sportback and Sedan are no longer on sale in Europe and other markets, but production will resume in early 2019.
