Talk about an RS3

http://www.pistonheads.com/news/default.asp?storyId=19541

We've not heard anything from Audi of yet though  
DavidT

Hard to believe they won't produce the RS3 now all the work is done ?
Adam

If the pictures of a Clubsport TDi were anything to go by this could be a very mean car



DavidT

Yep, like that a lot.
James

Max Power

Might just be the colours and graphic though. Would probably look great in all black.
Adam

Imola would do me
jamiekip

Tone it down a little - to max power in that guise - and it's a winner.
Even at £35k I think it will tick a lot of boxes for a lot of people..... and finally a sound to die for compared to the S3 (it's the only thing that lets my car down!)

Fingers crossed eh

I can't see Audi bringing an RS3 out looking like this (for the public), could be wrong of course.
Adam

Not the colours Hugh Like the wide stance (real RS presence, not like the TTRS) and love the look of the bolt on wide arches, very GT2
DavidT

No, it won't look quite like that but they do build most of the cars they show.

I think it will come in a year or so, once the TT RS is established & it will look very mean the small the model number, the meaner the S/RS is

that car is far far chavvier than an RS6 with some back lights. look at the rear spoiler? it looks like it sticks out like them transformer body kits on saxos

I never thought it would happen, but now they've produced a TTRS, who knows...?
ZeroK66

Agreed wtih everyone here.  Seems a no brainer now the TT-RS has an engine.

Hopefully they finally do this, as I have the same thoughts regarding this being a no-brainer now.
DavidT

A little more rumour !

graemep

I assume when they say power will be limited compared to the TT-RS, it will just be in the same way as pre-2002 S3's were compared to the equivalent TT at the time.
DavidT

Is it going to drive like all the other haldex cars I've driven. i.e. front wheel drive feel & 4wd when it needs it ? or have theys sorted that out now ?

If the former, I would not want one.
GardinerG

They really could make a properly good hot hatch.  4wd, don't limit the power - make it a true sub 5s RS3 and I'd want one for the Mrs (and me when she's not looking).

Just my 2p.

RS3 to debut at Frankfurt

Sorry to resurrect this thread but:

http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news...zzling_rs3_set_to_steal_show.html

As homer would say, mmmm RS3....  

I can't wait to see the real deal.
CliveH

Autoexpress have been running this story from time to time for the last 3 years, but this time I have to say it does look rather promising and does fit in with recent rumours from other sources about the use of the TTRS engine.

If it is true, I'll be wishing I'd gone to Frankfurt rather than Geneva this year...
loomx

Im really looking forward to see whats at the Frankfurt show! Should be some awesome stuff...

I would love an RS3 if it was tunable enough... I also REALLY want one of the MINI coupes thats going to be shown off there

A worthy competitor to the IM from BMW, and a sensible sized car.

Thats not a bad price considering that its  roughly the same size as a B5 in side and will be a great tunable car... i`ve already started to save   Before a bought my rs4 i was going to buy a new S3 which would of cost me £31000 with the spec i wanted so i think 40k is`nt a bad price to pay
