Audi has significantly expanded its A3 lineup in a short time. In addition to the regular gasoline and diesel versions, there are hybrid and sports versions. The top of the A3 lineup will soon be dominated by the RS3, which can already be seen without camouflage.

Audi S3 Sportback and S3 sedan with 310 hp and 400 Nm are still the sporting leaders of the A3 lineup, but they will soon have to admit the superiority of the powerful RS3 variants. A lot of photos of the new RS3 Sportback have been circulated on social media, completely without camouflage film, and this does not bother anyone. The car has appeared in front of spy camera lenses several times already, and the “recipe” for the RS appearance is, of course, well known.

The black RS3 Sportback in these photos has the oval tailpipes of the RS versions, a sportier bumper, which in the case of this example features silver gray accents. The car is not yet fully production-ready: for example, temporary wheel arch extensions are still visible on the front wheel arches.

Like its predecessor, the all-wheel-drive RS3 Sportback will likely receive a five-cylinder 2.5-liter petrol engine, which is expected to be slightly more powerful than the previous 400-hp 2.5-liter variant. Don’t be surprised if Audi gives the RS3 420 hp. in response to the 421bhp Mercedes-AMG A45 S. The debut of the new RS3 Sportback, which will also be accompanied by the premiere of the RS3 sedan, will probably not be long in coming.
