Audi's firecracker five-cylinder RS 3 has giant-killing pace, and so it should thanks to its race bred heritage.
The unmistakable bark of a five-cylinder Audi S1 Group B Rally Car from the early 1980s that swept all before it helped transform Audi’s once drab, conservative image to the high-performance prestige powerhouse we see today.
Fast forward some 35 years and the RS 3 is a crazy, all-wheel drive hatchback with a 2.5-litre turbocharged-petrol-five producing 270kW and a massive 465Nm. The next telling stat is where all that mumbo is delivered — across a 4000rpm window from just 1625rpm. Home Alone face.
Ergonomics, build quality and finish are also second to none, elevating this car well above other hot hatches. Something Audi is well known for.
Delivered new by Audi Centre Sydney in December 2015, this superb and fully optioned Nardo Grey over Black Leather MY16 Audi RS 3 is accompanied by a complete factory service history and features:
• RS Performance Package
• RS Design Package
• Assistance Package
• Extended Black High Gloss Styling Package
• Aluminium Race trim
• Black Roof Rails
• Panoramic Sunroof
Travelling 66,963 kilometres, a major service was completed by Audi in December 2019, and the car received 4 x new Pirelli P Zero tyres at the same time.
In its 2016 review, Motoring.com.au said “Point-to-point acceleration is fantastic and gear selection effortless”, “The five-cylinder snarl from this one sparks enough emotion in me to want one for that reason alone. The RS 3’s refinement and undeniable point-to-point speed is a bonus.”
The perfect performance hatch, this exceptional RS 3 in arguably the best colour combination will not last long.
