Don't panic, it's only a render..... Not due till late 2014
Glad its a render as it looks like someones dinked the front wing
Is this an official render? I want one!
They really need to do a 3 door RS3 it would look the nuts then.
Dunno mate..... Was surfing and picked up this image, featured in What Car. Which officially the most boring car
magazine you can buy.
I like it, in particular black optics....... getting my wing mirrors gloss black to match front end and rear diffuser.
Quote from What Car
'Audi's RS editions have traditionally gone on sale towards the end of each model's lifecycle. The previous RS3, for example, was launched just months before the A3 on which it was based ceased production.
However, the chief of Audi's Quattro division, Stephan Reil, revealed that the next RS3 will be launched barely more than a year after the S3, which was unveiled at the Paris motor show last month.
As with all of Audi's RS models, the new RS3 will be four-wheel drive, and will almost certainly be powered by the same 335bhp five-cylinder turbocharged engine as the previous model. 'Let's just say you will be seeing more of the five-cylinder engine,' said Reil.
12 months ago I would have agreed, after owning the 5 door now though and thinking back through the RS heritage, I understand Audi's decisions to only release in 5 door flavour.
You having one mate?
Be interested to see what that looks like mate!
That looks good for 360bhp and a single option pack for 400bhp, front ceramic brakes and bucket seats to me.
No no no!!!!!!! If you want a girls car (or 17 year olds wet dream) buy an s3 3door.. The whole point of the design brief was that its supposed to be an avant... Tbh I love the sportback - looks less chavvie and more purposeful.. Of course I have got the "silly" wheels, so chav status restored...
GUYS! AM I missing something here?
WHY ARE YOU GETTING SO EXCITED over a 'maybe' NEW Audi RS3 when the ARSE*O*ES at Audi UK can't get the current one right?
I'll NOT panic yet, robbimac:
Paint you're wing-mirrors black and you're there........ Wait a minute, that's my idea....... don't do it, not until I get there first
OK, so I forgot the paint, but I can do Humbrol blackâ¦
However, I did try harder today (Mid Wales - utterly BRILLIANT!) to get an angle 'close' to the Sander 2014 proposition (don't go there, please, the man and/or Audi UK - which he supposedly leads are just NOT customer orientated) and here you are:
The 2011 Audi RS3, a great car, a seriously CLASS piece of machinery, one of the best (sort it yourself, DO NOT wait for Audi UK).
PS: saw a White RS3 (maybe Suzuka) near Beddgellert mid-day today- superb!
AND STILL ON WINTER TYRES...
BLUEY is NOW de-badged.... FRONT and REAR...
You cant remain aloof by throwing your badges away, infact it does the complete opposite.
What other model has no ID.?
and your rear plate appears to have some sh1t smeared on it.btw
wow.... who rattled you're cage......have an early night sunshine. It's Monday for everyone you know
Never really been a fan of 5 doors due to the extra window at the back....always thought it looked messy, but now having an 8 month old baby i dont give a **** about the window because i could then be able to get him in and out of the car without having to be a contortionist!
You had a fun day out, Beddgelert A4085 toward Caernarfon is a cracking road, so good they even put a V Power station at the top end of it. A properly twisty challenging road for the RS3 at sensible speeds. I take this road even if it means a bit of detour when I'm working nearby. Only real hazards are the telegraph poles road side of the stone walls (who let that happen!) and the occasional mindless sheep.
Great photos John ... please post more
and debadged is much more fun :icon_thumright: ... I gave an "unknowing" BMW 330 driver the shock of his life today
You're so right MBK: our run was from Cannock to Shrewsbury, Chirk, Llangollen, Betws-y-Coed, Capel Curig (all A5), Beddgelert (saw another RS3 in White-or-Suzuka), Porthmadog (all A498), Black-Rock Sands (for lunch); then to Harlech, Barmouth, Dolgellau (all A496), Mallwyd (A470), Welshpool, Shrewsbury (all A458), and back down the A5 to Home:
An absolutely brilliant piece of machinery.
The engine, gearbox, and brakes provide the best package I've ever experienced on a road-car.
I've done similar Welsh road blasts before but none as enjoyable/fun/fast as in this animal, really! And mega-comfort too, with standard seats.
EVERYONE needs to get his or her RS3 over there MBK (not all at the same time mind). The roads are just MAGIC, built for an RS3. And the scenery is spectacular too; just have to stop a while on the way. Ok, I used to enjoy my Elan over there too, but it's epic in an RS3: I'll be back soon.

And NO sheep, telegraph poles, or stonewalls: I'm with you MBK, what's not to like?
This is Wales in February...
I live very close, Anglesey, the roads are epic!
im still yet to see an RS3 locally, seen a couple of fakes though!
Bwlch and RS3 = FUN!!
