Our spies have returned with a new set of photos depicting the upcoming Audi RS3.

The camouflaged prototype was seen just near the Nürburgring in Germany and it was the Sportback version, not surprisingly taking into account reports suggest Audi will sell the RS3 only as a five-door model. Expect to see a slightly more aggressive body kit compared to the S3 with wider tracks and a dual oval-shaped exhaust arrangement.

Its heart and soul will allegedly be the familiar 2.5-liter 5-cylinder turbo tweaked to output somewhere in the region of 367 PS (270 kW). It will work with an S tronic transmission to send output to a quattro all-wheel drive system. There are also talks about an optional dynamic kit but details are murky right now.

Chances are the Audi RS3 Sportback will be officially revealed at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, with order books opening a month later while deliveries are likely programmed to commence in July.
