Interested to hear people’s views on the new RS3 coming out?
Obviously a rival to our RS, along with the AMG A45, some obvious improvements on this new model including BHP now pretty much at 400.
The inside for me wipes the floor with the RS (more carbon fibre and layout is perfection) however exterior wise I just think it’s not as sporty and mean.
Obviously taking brand in to account and specification, this car top whack is about £60k- so pretty much £20k+ more than a fully specced Mk3.
Now I’m not saying I’d want to purchase one of these (however tempting!) but I would definitely be very keen to test drive one and see how it compares. Needless to say these RS3s sound DIVINE and apparently this new model goes like an absolute beast and gear changes are as good as a GT3 RS.
I test drove one before my RS purchase. Epic engine, sounds amazing and much nicer inside. It is ridiculously fast but just not as fun to drive. I was quite happy to choose the RS and save a significant amount. However, I am a big fan of fast Audi’s and will defo look again for my next car.
If I was in the market for a £60k car, I’d test drive it back to back with a loaded M2…..about £55k. The fact that the RS can do what it does at that price point, even with its humble Ford badge, makes it a bit of a marvel.
