Geneva 2011: Audi RS3 Sportback

The Audi RS3 Sportback is another hot hatch out of most people’s ballpark, but that won’t stop us from bringing you live shots of it as it makes its first appearance at the Geneva Auto Show.

With a 340 horsepower, 332 lb-ft turbocharged 5-cylinder engine and a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, the RS3 can hit 60 mph in 4.6 seconds. Helping bring this car to a halt are 14.57″ 4-piston brakes up front and 12.2″ rears. Wider fenders, a blacked-out grille and a lower ride height help give off subtle cues as to what this car can do. Think of it as a TT-RS in a more practical package.
