Audi RS3 Spied Preparing for Debut

Audi RS3 Spied Preparing for Debut

Audi is readying the next hot hatch to join the German automaker’s lineup.

The Audi RS3 was spotted testing by AutoGuide‘s spy photographers in anticipation to a possible debut at this year’s Paris Motor Show. Compared to earlier mules that Audi has been testing, this appears to be a heavily camouflaged production version sporting an aggressive front bumper, large oval exhaust tips and slightly wider fenders.

The RS3 that was spied testing sounds like it is powered by a four-cylinder engine, which would match the latest rumors that suggest Audi is using the Volkswagen Group’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Most recently, Volkswagen debuted the hot Golf R 400 sporting 395 hp under the hood and it could be the same powerplant being used in the upcoming RS3.
