Based on the basis of sedan Audi S3, four-extreme sports car demonstrates the hidden potential of the latest generation A3 models and has the ideal characteristics. Instead of the 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine was mounted 2.5-liter five-cylinder TFSI engine from a sports crossover Q3 RS. To lift out the power train German engineers replaced the turbocharger, upgraded intercooler, modified intake and exhaust systems. So the maximum power grew from 310 to 525 horsepower and maximum torque increased from 420 to 600 Newton meters available in the range of 2300 to 6000 rpm.
