Audi RS3
turbocharged 3.2-litre v6 : 350 hp : 2006


The Audi RS3 will take the hot hatch brigade by storm and it is expected that this super car will have a power output of about 260kW. Audi insiders say that there will also be a less powerful S3 model.

At the heart of the 2006 RS3 will be a modified version of the current A3 range topper's 3.2-litre V6 engine. This unit will be turbocharged and will also feature FSI direct-injection technology and torque will be about 450Nm.

The RS3 will get a six-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifts and will also have electrically assisted power steering. It will also feature upgraded brakes similar to that of the RS4.

Of course Audi's famous quattro four-wheel drive system will also be standard on the RS3.

The car's exterior will reflect its sporty nature. Like the new A6 and A8 W12 the RS3 will get the new Audi single frame grille which will dominate the nose design. A deep spoiler with large air intakes will finish of the muscular front-end.

Other sporty touches include wide side sills, heavily flared wheelarches and a tailgate spoiler.

Audi will also launch the RS3 in Sportback guise. The Audi A3 Sportback, which is a estate car, will be introduced later this year.

Early next year Audi will introduce an S3 model which will rival cars such as the Alfa 147 GTA. It will get a naturally aspirated version of the 3.2-litre V6 engine with a power output of about 210kW.
 
NICE! Me likes!
 
I wonder how powerful the S3 is going to be? There isnt much space between 250bhp and 350bhp, maybe 300??

Shit I should read before posting.... :(

Anyway that sounds good :)
 
that looks absurdly cool :woot:
i doubt the 350hp part though, if they are being truthful than i'd definately buy one!
 
"Lets just make the entire front end of the car chicken wire"

Photoshop or not, that car is pretty pimp to just be sold off a normal production line. Thats why Audi doesnt have that many tuners I think..
 
I always liked/wanted an S3...that makes me want/like the RS3 even more.
 
OMFG, so hot.
 
I'd love it if they made a manual version.

And it will only cost seven times the normal A3. Yea it's cool but I'll wait the S3 more eagerly.
it will probably cost too much yes, i would guess it will be in the Mid $40K's
 
You do realize that this is a load of crap, right?

As mentioned before it's a photoshop and the article itself has probably been written 12 months ago or something. They're talking about the upcoming A3 sportback which has been around for quite some time now. They're also mentioning the single frame grille, which is standard on the A3 (Sportback and regular), A4, A4 Cabriolet, A6 andA8 (no matter which engine). When the article was written only the A6 and A8 W12 had this grille=it's old! ;)

Its the typical "lets guess what audi could do if they.... thinking of car mags. they just throw random numbers into the air and come up with photoshopped images. You cant really believe most of this stuff.
