Audi has released new video footage with the recently introduced 2014 RS Q3.

The first Q model to receive the RS designation was shown to the public for the first time earlier this week in Geneva, before it goes on sale this fall at a starting price of 54,600 EUR in Germany.

For this money you'll be getting a sporty crossover powered by a 5-cylinder, 2.5-liter turbocharged engine producing 310 HP (228 kW) and 310 lb-ft (420 Nm) of torque. Power is sent to a quattro all-wheel drive system via a 7-speed S tronic gearbox which sends the car to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 5.5 seconds and onto an electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

On the outside it has an aggressive body kit with different bumpers, honeycomb grille inserts and updated side skirts. We also notice a spoiler mounted on the roof, matte aluminum trim, elliptical tailpipe and a rear diffuser. The Audi RS Q3 has a 25mm lowered suspension and can sit on either 19- or 20-inch alloys.
