Today's Auto Express magazine shows a' spy shot' of what it claims to be the new RS3 caught testing near Ingolstadt. It says that whilst the car's existance is not in doubt, secrecy surrounds the engine that will be used. One option is to use an uprated version of the Golf R32's V6 which could be easily tuned to give 350bhp. The other alternative Audi has is to modify the 420bhp V8 found in the RS4.
It also says that the the RS3 is being developed by Audi's Sport division, the team responsible for the S4 and RS4 and that the price tag for the RS3 will be around £38,000.
