According to a recent report, Audi will introduce a new RS3 in the spring of 2014.

Little is known about the model, but quattro GmbH's chief told What Car? "Let's just say you will be seeing more of the five-cylinder engine." This likely implies the car will keep its turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder that developed 340 HP (250 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.

It remains unclear if the engine will feature some extra power, but even if it doesn't the weight reductions from the MQB platform should enable the model to be faster than its predecessor which accelerated from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds.

We can also expect the RS3 will have an aggressive body kit, high performance brakes and quattro all-wheel drive.
