Audi RS3 2

The world has seen many impressive hatchbacks, the Ford Focus ST, The Fiesta, the Golf GTI, and it was the turn of the giants to go into that race, like Mercedes-Benz with the A class, made most powerful Hatch in the world. With competition being fierce, Audi presented its new hatchback, the RS3, and it the most powerful between them all.

Numbers : The RS3 is powered by a 2.5 L 5 cylinder TFSI engine, that develops 367 bhp. The engine boosts the car from stop to 100 kph in 4.3 seconds, and top speed limit has been pushed up to 280 kph. The power is channeled to the four wheels via a 7-speed multi-disk double-clutch S tronic transmission. Audi fitted it with Launch control. The RS3 is fitted with the Audi Quattro system with torque vectoring. Fuel consumption is 8.1 L to the 100 km, with CO2 emissions of 189 grams per kilometer. It is said to cost around 40,000€.


The new RS 3 weighs close to 1655 kg, and with the power from its engine, it can go sideways, play with its tail as any hot hatch can do. The multidisk hydraulic clutch can, and with the help of the revised Quattro system, transfer all the power to the rear wheels. The driver can enjoy it more with the ESC (electronic stability control) off, that is when the car forgets all about the electronic mambo jumbo, and goes crazy sideways.
