Audi RS3 Quattro Sportback 2.5L 2012

Audi are synonymous with building high-quality performance RS models and when they confirmed at the time only 750 right-hand drives were to be produced, with a £40,000 price tag, it made them a whole lot more desirable. The combination of the S-Tronic gearbox, four-wheel drive and turbocharged torque makes day-to-day driving that much more exhilarating. Its 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbocharged engine has a staggering 340PS which in performance terms translates to 0-62mph in a time of 4.4 seconds. With all RS models comes the Quattro all-wheel drive which means the traction won’t be hampered at the expense of better driving performance and furthers the capability of being able to carry speed into a corner without the front end slipping away. From the moment you turn the ignition, you notice the five-cylinders with the deep rasp you get from under the bonnet, and despite this, the sound won’t be overly intrusive when travelling at low sedate speeds. From a performance perspective, the RS3 certainly lives up to the billing, with 450Nm of torque available from just 1600rpm giving the drive flexibility when in the mid-range.

Our pristine 2012 Audi RS3 Quattro Sportback S Tronic comes with the optional Aluminium styling pack which consists of the door mirror caps, door handles, rear spoiler, rear diffuser, front splitter and front grille all finished in aluminium which offers a crisp contrast from the body coloured Misano red finish and the further contrasting black Nappa leather upholstery. Furthermore, with additional optional features being boasted such as a carbon interior trim, 8-speaker and amplifier upgraded Bose sound system, cruise control, heated front seats and rear privacy glass – our RS3 withholds a modernisation and maintaining its relevance within the modern motoring world luxuries. Separating the body of the car from the tarmac are its 19 Inch Rotor alloy wheels other notable highlights are to include Audi Navigation System Plus, cruise control, Bi Xenon headlights with LED running daytime lights and rear distance parking control. This car has also been meticulously maintained and has just received a pre-delivery inspection to include full replacement of all brake discs and pads. With only 43,000 miles on the clock and the reassurance of a full-documented service history behind it, our Audi RS3 is one of a dying breed within the hatchback market which makes it extremely desirable.
