Here’s the part everyone is interested in, The 2022 Audi RS3 engine

The classic Audi RS3’s 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder engine remains preserved, with 400hp on tap. However, torque has increased from 480Nm to 500Nm, making it more available across the rpm range.

A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission distributes power to all four wheels. As a result, the new Audi RS3 accelerates from zero to sixty miles per hour in 3.8 seconds, a whole second faster than the S3 and 0.1 seconds faster than the Mercedes-AMG A45 S.

The Audi RS3 is limited to 155mph out of the box, but the extra RS Dynamic package boosts that to 180mph – Absolutely bonkers on the road!

We are now taking orders on these, if you think you can handle up to 180MPH in a small family car , get in touch and we’ll get you sorted.
