Due to overwhelming demand, Audi has announced plans to offer an additional 250 RS3 Sportbacks in the United Kingdom.

Priced from £39,930 OTR, the model features a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine that produces 340 PS (250 kW / 335 hp) and 450 Nm (332 lb ft) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed S tronic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive system which enables the 1,575 kg (3,472 lb) hatchback to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and hit an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). Despite the impressive performance, the model is relatively frugal as it averages 9.1 L/100km (25.8 mpg US / 31.0 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 212 g/km.
