One of the cars that caused most of the rumors is the Audi Q3 RS. Over time many of us have wondered how does this car looks like or which are its performances. Now we can find out.
At a recent press event, Audi brought along a special Q3 that is said to have a detuned version of the RS3′s 2.5-liter motor, which now produces 300 horsepower. Although that’s not an unreal figure, it sure sounds loud. Ok, but this raises another problem: is this an RS model or an S model?
Now that we’ve heard mumblings of an X1 M, how far off could it be? If Audi has already taken the time out to detune the RS3′s motor and even is showing off a working prototype, are wethat far away?
The creation of a prototype model shown at a media event is the proof that Audi is seriously considering the introduction of a high-performance S or RS version of its newly launched Q3 compact SUV
According to the folks over at Sweden’s Sportbilen, the prototype was uncovered during the European press launch of the new Audi Q3 in Zurich, Switzerland. This wasn’t a static presentation as the media had the chance to drive the pre-production model on the road and you can see the resul in the video.
