2013 Audi S3 Mega Gallery: 2012 Paris Preview

Faster, smoother and lighter than ever before, details of the 2013 Audi S3 were just released along with a host of photos showing the all-new car in detail.

With a completely new engine and architecture, the sporty hatch gains new muscle with 300 hp and a wide range of useable torque. Migrating to the new MQB platform which it shares with Volkswagen’s Golf also grants a 132-lb weight loss.

Despite flaunting revised exterior styling, the car remains unmistakably an Audi with little to distinguish it apart from the S3 badging, sportier wheels and sportier exhaust and rear diffuser. Brand enthusiasts will recognize the difference easily, but most pedestrians probably wont bat an eyelash over its under-the-radar looks.
