Audi is not letting up when it comes to the RS brand. Several new RS models will be making their way into different markets, including Mzansi, quite frequently now, which is different from a few years ago. Audi Sport – which runs the RS brand – is getting ready to launch another hot RS car, in this case the all-new RS 3 Sportback.

These spy pics that have come out show a black front grille with hidden logo. These days the Audi logo can be made black, and for the RS 3 could also see this. Interestingly the bonnet seems to have taken from the new A1, which took from the classic ur-quattro, with a few gills. We see LED headlights and LED daytime running lights. The side profile is nothing to write home about, except for the black alloy wheels.

Under the bonnet lies an updated 2.5-litre, 5-cylinder turbo engine which will cross the 300kW mark for the first time. Simultaneously the 0 – 100km/h time will also dip under the 4 second barrier through that, the gearbox and the quattro all-wheel-drive (AWD).
