One of the most exciting cars currently being developed by Audi is the next-generation RS3 Sportback. Set to act as the perfect rival to the Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG, the car will feature updated styling and a more powerful engine than the outgoing model.
Some design inspiration is likely to be taken from the Audi A3 Clubsport Quattro Concept revealed a couple of days ago. X-Tomi Design has created this rendering of the latest RS3 Sportback where it features enlarged front air intakes complete with silver accents at the front end. More aggressive side sills and skirts also featuring prominently as does an enlarged bumper at the rear.
Under the hood, the new RS3 will feature a potent 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbocharged engine delivering a total of 367 hp. This powerful forced induction engine will then drive all four wheels through the quattro all-wheel drive system via Audi’s latest S tronic transmission. By comparison, the previous-generation Audi RS3 features a 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder delivering 335 hp helping it to hit 100 km/h in a mere 4.6 seconds.
Alongside the new Audi RS3, it is reported that it could be available with a dynamic package. This dynamic package will likely add some handling improvements as well as some visual tweaks.
