Default Audi S3

Audi are launching their premium hatchback A3 in a more sportier variant, the S3. The S3 will be powered by the same 2.0 TFSI engine in the A3 BUT in the S3 the engine delivers 265 Hp!

Let the figures speak for themselves:

2.0 TFSI 4 cylinder 265hp engine
350Nm at 2500 rpm!
6 speed Manual transmission.
Quattro permanant four wheel drive.
18 inch Alloys.
0-100 kmph in 5.7 seconds
Top speed 250 kmph (limited)

And the cherry on the cake :

Fuel Economy 9.1 Liters per 100 kms. (combined driving cycle)



Audi S3.

Good move by Audi. The car looks terrific from the front. In the end it's just like a Golf only though.
Wonder if they should put the VR6 into this and make it more powerful in future.

Falling in love with the quattro's once again...better than vw's new R32....definately!! .......and much much better looking!!!!

too expensive for a hot hatch though...especially with competition like Holden / Opel's ASTRA SRi (or whatever they are called around the world) and FORD's - XR5 focus....

I'm guessing it'll be priced around £25k for the three door. Expensive, yes...but meaty, you betchya!

Default MR Car Design Audi S3 Black Performance Edition

The Black Performance Edition is MR Car Design's tuning take on the latest Audi S3 hot hatch, which benefits from performance and styling mods. The S3ís 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine has been reworked, pushing output to 337-horsepower through the use of a Stage III kit that includes among other upgrades, a reprogrammed engine control unit, a sport exhaust and cat system and a larger intercooler. Apparently, itíll be faster than the standard 265HP model that hits 0-62 mph in 5.7 seconds (manual gearbox). The modded S3 rides on black 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Dunlop Sportmaxx high performance 235/35 ZR19 tires, while buyers can also opt for an upgraded braking system from StopTech and adjustable coilovers from KW Automotive.
