Crazy little pocket rocket for its time. The only car that could even come close to it in its segment were the Focus RS500 and the 1M Coupé. And even then both were left in the dust after a good launch :D

This car is surprisingly close to the claims of the new Golf R.

Good and very versatile car. It sounds stoning. Practical, and fast.

The problem is turbo lag and, weight, also AWD system is very "safe" so no oversteer.

RS3 0-100 kph = 4,6 sec!!!


User avatar

Huh?  10y ago

S, do you don't know difference between mph and kph-times? And do you don't know difference between calculated times and the factory claims?


User avatar

S  10y ago

0-60 in 4.0secs? I don't think so!

It's 4.6, not 4


User avatar

Still the RS3 have the same weight distribution as every other AWD hot hatch.


User avatar

anoni  10y ago

it has 183kg which is very bad. you can find the specifications with a simple google search.
the weight distribution could be better and with 20kg less, means less understeer.


User avatar

Hans  10y ago

@anoni Where did you read that the weight?
Actually it's not bad It have the same weight distribution as Mercedes A45 AMG wich have smaller engine- 2 liter 4 cylinder.


User avatar

anoni  10y ago

this engine is a heavy pork of 183kg which is shocking.
the block is iron ?
wtf is with this weight ? the latest generation of 3.0tdi engine have 10 kg more that this 2.5 liters 5 cylinders.
hope that audi will change the block of this engine to aluminum because it is a real shame the weight of this engine. also this weight means nose heavy and understeer.
a normal weight for 2.5tfsi should be between 160 and 170kg.

If this RS3 acceleration 0-150 km/h 8.6 s, so it will acceleration 0-100 mph 9 -9.5 s. And 0-200 kph about 15-15.5 s.

I Never said i didnt like it, Read first..


User avatar

Eryk03  11y ago

Yes, for impractical because people like you do not like the 4 door in RS3...


User avatar

BR2,  11y ago

£67,465, (Plus)(Fully) 10k more, and for what? A bit faster, less Impractical?


User avatar

Eryk03  11y ago

@BR2,impractical and two-door then you have a TT-RS...


User avatar

BR2,  11y ago

If only tis were a Coupe insteadof a Sedan..

Ford £56,500, I would rather have a 1 Series M, or the S5, I dont think this should have been a 4-Door Car..

Too bad i dont found in bilsports.se website, that article :/
