A basic f80 m3 is about the same weight with 424 bhp.

Well considering how powerful its A 45 rival is...Also in Europe musclecars are pricey so this would be a relative performance bargain. I'm thinking 0-100 mph in 8.5-9.0 or so.

I was thinking that too, Looks fantastic, Weirdly I thought 400bhp was almost overkill given what kind if car it is, But at the same time it's an RS, You wouldnt expect that much power or it to be that fast looking like that, But we are car guys/gurls, we no, But 55k doesn't seem so bad

I quite like the look of this car, the angry puppy look. But honestly it doesn't need to be 400hp and definitely doesn't need to cost that much.

The facelifted RS3 also available in sedan form. The engine comes from the TT-RS, it's lighter and more powerful than the old one. 1576 kg is weighted by Sportauto.
