Audi has been relatively quiet about the Q3 RS, but the company recently gave Sweden's Sportbilen an exclusive glimpse at a prototype during the Q3's press launch in Zurich, Switzerland.

The resulting video isn't terribly exciting, but it does confirm previous reports the crossover would feature a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine - with 300 PS (221 kW / 296 hp) - that is connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch S-tronic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive.

A production model has been rumored for late 2012, but nothing is official as of yet.
