New RS3
« on: Oct 09, 11, 15:24 »
With the RS3 coming to NA sporting the venerable 2.5TFSI, I think my new dream car is no longer the TT-RS.

Sure it's a $50k A3, but the Golf R is a $40k GTI.   :-/










I'd love to see what a chip and exhaust will do for this car.  400 AWD HP?

It said it isn't coming to north america in that article.

Either way... The 2.5TFSI is reportedly putting down 450hp and 510tq on a 104 RON file. And that's just a stage 1 flash!! They are currently working on a TBE and one can assume a stage 2 flash.

More recent review said Audi has changed their tune -> http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/car/11q1/2011_audi_rs3_sportback-first_drive_review

could be very interested in one of these if this is the case. Love that engine!

Always had a soft spot for the A3s. This one just boggles my brain. Great sound and great look. Really looking forward to seeing one of these on the road.

It just needs lower front seats so I can fit in it.

If they bring this over..i will rid myself of a kidney...for no other reason other than that screaming 2.5 5cyl turbo motor. This motor has already proven it can make a reliable 500whp. >8\

This is the last year of the current A3 model and also the last year of the S3/RS3 so its unlikely that any of these would be coming over here.
