July 25, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

A camouflaged prototype of a “charged” Audi RS3 of the new generation was seen on tests. The debut of new items can be expected in the first half of next year.

Engineers and test drivers from the Audi Sport division in Ingolstadt, Germany are currently working on a number of new models, including the powerful next-generation RS3 sedan. The prototype of the new Audi presented here, the “spy” photos from the tests of which appeared at the disposal of our publication a couple of minutes ago, is undergoing high-speed tests at the Nürburgring race track.

Judging by the published photos, the prototype of the powerful German sedan still has a pretty dense camouflage, but it looks like the car already has all the serial elements of the body and optics.

However, the rear diffuser design looks somewhat unfinished. All in all, we can’t comment on the final look of the new RS3 sedan until we see the final product, but these spy shots provide a good look at the overall proportions of the car.

Under the hood of the new Audi will be an upgraded version of the famous five-cylinder turbo engine Audi, the power of which will be in the region of 394 horsepower (480 Nm).

All the power from the engine will be transmitted to all four wheels thanks to the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and the Quattro all-wheel drive system. An even more powerful Performance version, rated at 444 hp, could also be offered to buyers, according to German media reports. Obviously nothing has been confirmed at this point.

The debut of the next-generation Audi RS3 sedan can be expected in the first half of next year.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that a prototype of a coupe-like Audi Q5 Sportback 2021 was seen on tests. Journalists published photos from tests of a coupe-like crossover Audi Q5 Sportback. The prototype of the new Audi received a slight camouflage. The debut of the crossover will take place in the near future.
