The new RS3 will come with 350 PS (257 kW / 345 bhp), 10 PS more than the 2.5 liter TFSI's configuration in the TT RS model.
The Audi RS3 is coming and reports are that it will get a slightly boosted version of the same 2.5 liter inline 5-cylinder TFSI power plant that was first introduced in the TT RS model.
According to Auto Express, the upcoming RS3 will come with 350 PS (257 kW / 345 bhp), 10 PS more than that engine's configuration in the TT RS model.
The new RS3 will also come fitted with Audi's 7-speed S tronic double-clutch gearbox.
The British magazine has published photos of some of the RS3's interior components, non-installed, which include a speedometer that reaches 310 km/h (192 mph) and a steering wheel with aluminum paddle shifters. But the RS3 will likely come with an electronically set speed limiter that will put the car on hold at the 250 km/h (155 mph) mark.
The new RS3 will be limited to just 2,700 units.
