Did the beastly AMG G63 beat a tuned Leon Cupra R ST and a stock RS3 Sportback? .
All-new Audi RS3 Sportback will squeeze more power from the five-cylinder engine when it debuts in early 2021.
Some even believe that the next-gen VW Golf R might get Audi’s turbo-five engine.
True, it’s not stock, but even so, a mega hatch with near-supercar figures is truly exciting.
On paper, the two are quite evenly matched – and their different power delivery makes the outcome unpredictable .
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.
