Audi’s new fast and compact sedan, the RS3 has been spotted doing the rounds at the Nurburgring circuit in Germany. The upcoming performance model was caught on camera with heavy camouflage around the front and the rear and the doorsills.
The highlight of the RS3 sedan will be Audi’s new 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbocharged engine. Producing close to 400bhp of power and 480Nm of torque, this engine also powers the latest- gen TT RS. Like the latter, the RS3 sedan will also get a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox and quattro all-wheel drive configuration.
To match the go, Audi will give the RS3 sedan an aggressive new look complete with restyled front and rear bumpers, different exhaust pipes, bigger alloy wheels and racier upholstery on the inside.
The new Audi RS3 sedan is expected to be showcased in the next few months. When launched, it will go head-to-head with the Mercedes CLA 45 AMG.
