For the unacquainted, the Audi RS3 is one seriously hot hatch. Its 2.5-liter inline five makes plenty of power, cranking out 367 horsepower and 343 lb.-ft. of torque. And thanks to its dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive, it hits 60 mph in only 4.3 seconds.
As you can imagine, we've been looking forward to getting the sedan version in the States. The S3 is nice, and with 292 horsepower and a 0-60 mph time of 4.7 seconds, it isn't slow. But when you know there's an even-faster version coming, it's hard to stay content.
In , it looks like we won't have to wait too much longer. The car's clearly close to production-ready, wearing only minimal camouflage. And as you can tell by the glowing brake disc 45 seconds in, it's being flogged pretty hard.
Now if only Audi would hurry up and bring it over so we can drive it. We need to experience that five-cylinder goodness. Need!
