Audi may be sending out the current generation TT-RS with one final special edition - the TT-RS Plus - but they are introducing another with that same package. At least, that is what a leaked document is suggesting.

Back in June 2011, Audi reported that all of the 2,700 units of the highly anticipated RS3 Sportback had been sold out, but if this document is to be taken seriously, then customers may have another chance to snag the sports hatch in an even cooler package. The RS3 Plus will take the turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine - also found in the TT-RS - and jump-start it by 20 HP, leaving it with a total of 360 HP and 342 lb-ft. of torque. And just like with the TT-RS Plus, the RS3 Plus will be a few pounds lighter, thus making it a little bit faster. Expect to see different carbon fiber elements as well, most likely a specially designed wheel and a fixed rear wing.

The Audi RS3 Plus will be unveiled in May 2012, a month after the TT-RS Plus.

No doubt that they are so anticipated with the RS3 sportback which happens to be sold out on its production. Well, I hope that this RS3 could get as well the same success just like their sportback.

I can’t wait to determine the other updated package of this RS3. Well, I hope that 2012 will come up soon! smiley Anyway, I’m already quite satisfied with its engine output.

The hexagonal exhaust of this RS3 really looks cool with it, even its engine is quite satisfying, but I think they should boost it more, so that it will be more impressive.

I wonder if they add some latest features on this RS3? Well, I hope that they really had, so I can say that it is truly worth waiting for. Anyway, the engine of this one is already quite good but not great.

RS3 is truly a teaser on its looks most especially on its front design! I just only hope that the engine output of it, could really be good enough on it, so that it will be a complete packaged for this sedan.

Even though it is only a sedan, I think they should still need to reinforce the engine of it, so I can say that it is totally a complete package on it. Anyway, it is already looking so great on its body paint.

The front design of this Audi RS3 is truly very attractive, and I’m glad that this had a different style from their other vehicle! smiley Furthermore, I am hoping that it could also offer an impressive interior feature.

Yeah! You are right, GenevaSanMiguel. It doesn’t really matter if it didn’t have a super impressive engine specification. The important is, the fact that it is so practical to use for everyday transportation.

The fact that it is not a sports car, I must say that its engine output is doesn’t really matter at all if it can only deliver a 360 HP, and just like their other cars, I can say that it is also so striking on its looks.
