RS3's at Le Mans

Just got back from Le Mans, clocked a couple of RS3's on a couple of Audi's many stands.
Sorry for the poor quality, only had my phone on me.











Have to say I was fairly underwhelmed, tho I think had it been a different colour It might have looked a bit more than just a new Sline, imagine a Noggy one hmmmm..

I had to check if you liked it or not before I thought I'd add. I hate it. There is very little about that styling that reminds me of a real RS. Isn't it all about the arches? Nope, not for me. Although the engine might make up for it, it's just not enough of a 'show off' for my liking. Not that I can afford one anyway.

And you went? Lucky! Stay awake the whole time?

The wheels look a bit chav to me.

Wow, did it look better in the metal? It really does just look like an S Line to me, which is a shame as I bet it goes well and by all accounts handles better than audi's of old. Nice pics though

Big Gay Grills are in then

Don't like it - Audi are ruining the RS badge IMO.

^ totally agree!  Missed opportunity completely!

Looks a great car but i cant justify the price of these, 40k+ is steep for an A3 regardless to how much power they have. If anything, i prefer the S3 8L of all the sporty A3's.

+1 I don't see the point in this car.

Why would you want a smaller car than the S4/RS4 for the same money ??? (and it's not that much smaller)

For what a good RS3 will cost you (around 45k maybe 50k if you tick every option) you could have an immaculate B7 RS4 and save 10k. As someone stated earlier "i think Audi are ruining the RS badge" i have to agree, i dont want Audi making pointless RS cars like BMW have made pointless M cars such as the X5M and X6M. In 10 years time, the RS3 will not be remembered like the B7 RS4 will or become an Audi great like the RS2 and RS4 B5 have.

Just does`nt look special enough to be a RS
frazered

oh dear...

arches are so skinny at the rear, wheels are awful, the shade of red is not even misano ??

looks very boy racer...

not that i was planning on getting one anyway...

looks shite lad.  prob drives ok though, there will be young city boys, management consultants and chavs queing round the corner I think

audi obviously don't think much, park up out of the way round the corner by the looks of it.

Didn't quite manage the whole 24, tho that might of had something to do with the amount of beer inflicted upon us by the crazy Dutch that were camped next to us lol

Audi seem to have gone a little more "show off" for the A2 tho

couldnt agree more! they are cheapening the RS cars by churning them out in all guises. When the RS2 was available, only die hard car nuts had even heard of them. Even today how many people know what the S1 is? ( or was)
bit like college degrees, anyone can get one in any subject!
marc1

The A1 really is special though.
aka_dk

they shud have done the RS 3 in the same spirit they did that A1

its just a S3 with different front bumper and wings

the engine is great thou

and no mag ride

Very true missmouse!Does  anyone know what NVQ stands for??LOL.
