Audi may decide to produce a high performance ‘RS’ version of the Q3 complete with a 300-hp version of the same engine found in the TT RS.
The engine has the potential to crank out 503-hp when pushed to the limit but expect it to be more tame for the compact crossover. Suspension modifications as well as a bodykit and custom interior pieces are expected to accompany to high output engine. Sources through Auto Motor and Sport have revealed that the Q3 Rs is coming, at least in Europe but we should keep out fingers crossed. If the crossover does go into production, expect to see it in the fall of 2012.
