Following its initial sell-out in the UK, the Audi RS3 Sportback is making a comeback. In response to additional demand, a limited production run has been secured, and just 250 slots now remain for UK customers. These examples will be available at the same £39,930 OTR price as the original 500 car quota which was rapidly snapped up in 2011.
The 2.5 liter turbocharged five cylinder engine provides 340hp and 450Nm of torque. Power is transmitted to the road via a seven-speed S tronic and quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The RS3 accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 4.6 seconds and the top speed is electronically limited to 250km/h.
Standard equipment of the UK model includes acoustic rear parking sensors, electronic climate control, DVD-based satellite navigation with MMI (Multi Media Interface) functionality and xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights.
Optional features include front bucket seats, roof rails in matt aluminium look and styling packages in black or matt aluminium. Five exterior colours are available, plus an unlimited selection of custom paint finishes.
