Hot, throaty sound, exhilaratingly free-revving and brawny power – the five cylinder engines from Audi are legendary. 270 kW / 367 hp output and 465 Nm / 343.0 lb ft of torque – Audi presents the new RS3 Sportback, the most powerful compact car in the premium segment. With its powerful five cylinder, turbocharged engine, the five door model accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.3 seconds, and its top speed can be increased to 280 km/h (174.0 mph) upon request.

"There is a long tradition of five-cylinder engines at Audi," says Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Board Member for Technical Development at AUDI AG. "In the 80s, they turned Audi into a sporty brand, both in motor sports and in production. The new Audi RS3 Sportback features the latest generation of our 2.5 liter, five-cylinder engine – the most powerful production engine in the modular transverse matrix."
