Audi RS3 – 2.5 liter engine with 367HP

Posted on 9 April, 2014


The all-new 2014 Audi RS3 is going to have a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine with 367 HP (270 kW). The car will be a direct rival to the super-powerful Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG, which is currently the most powerful among the hot hatchback cars.

The gearbox will be a 6-speed S-Tronic and the power will be transferred to the road through Quattro all-wheel drive system. No words about performance, but there will be an optional dynamic package.

Probably 0-100 km/h will be in less than 5.0 seconds and the top speed 250 km/h (155 mph) – electronically limited.

The model will go up for pre-order in April 2015 and the first deliveries will occur in July 2015.
