Due to the sell out of the 500 Limited Edition Audi RS3 Sportback, Audi have released a second run of the UK specification 340PS RS hatchback with 250 available to UK customers. These examples will be available at the same £39,930 OTR price as the original 500 car quota which was rapidly snapped up in 2011.
The Audi RS 3 Sportback is capable of 0-62mph in just 4.6 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 155 mph. Standard equipment includes acoustic rear parking sensors, electronic climate control, DVD-based satellite navigation with MMI (Multi Media Interface) functionality and xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights.
Optional features include front bucket seats, roof rails in matt aluminium look and styling packages in black or matt aluminium.
It is offered in five exterior colours plus an unlimited selection of custom paint finishes. The interior boasts fine Nappa leather-upholstered sports seats with silver contrasting stitching, Piano black or Aluminium Race look inlays, a flat-bottomed RS steering wheel and RS-specific instruments that highlight this car’s status.
