Watch the new Audi RS3 Sportback in motion with sound
Audi is getting its next-gen RS3 hot hatch ready to rumble at the Nürburgring, and if a recent spy video is any indication, the ‘rumble’ part is a massive success.
Since the car should debut in September, it probably has most, if not all, of its components finalized. The current generation draws its thrust from a 2.5-liter turbo rated at 400 PS (394 hp / 294 kW). The momentum hits all four wheels, enabling a sprint from zero to 60 miles per hour (97 km/h) in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph).
The next generation could receive a mild power boost to sprint slightly faster than before. Interior additions will likely boil down to a few extra screens and driving aids.
