With a power bump pushing the output to over 450 horses, the Audi RS3 also enters the "300 Club!"

But, no matter how many improvements the new RS3 is offering, under the hood, things remained pretty much unchanged: output went from 367 horsepower to 394 horsepower. But, for people that want even more than that, ABT Sportsline has the answer.

2021 Audi R8 V-10 Performance RWD

2021 Audi E-Tron GT

2021 Audi E-Tron GT

A beautiful all-electric four-door coupé that’ll take Audi one step above

Update 2-9-2021: Audi has finally revealed the E-Tron GT and RS E-Tron GT. While we update this review with all the finer details, check out the important information and new images below!

Announced at Audi’s Annual Press Conference in Ingolstadt earlier this year, the Audi E-Tron GT is a new all-electric four-door coupé destined to hit the market in 2020. Offered as part of the Audi electric onslaught in which the Ingolstadt-based company will reveal 20 new electric models by 2025, the Audi E-Tron GT will sit at the top of the Audi Sport division, and will be responsible for constructing an all-new character trait for Audi’s line of Sport vehicles. With models such as the Audi A5 Sportback and Audi A7, the company obviously has some proper knowledge of the four-door coupé design. The E-Tron GT will act as a flagship for this intriguing car segment.

Given the E-Tron GT will take technology, design features, cabin specs, and possibly drivetrain hardware from other E-Tron vehicles, we already know a thing or two about the new car. Marketed to fight against the likes of the Tesla Model S and similar entries from other manufacturers, the Audi E-Tron GT could be even more impressive than the recently introduced E-Tron Quattro SUV.

2021 Audi R8 Panther Edition

2021 Audi R8 Panther Edition

Audi’s famous — and exclusive — paint finish returns to the spotlight with the R8 Panther

Audi’s bringing back the rear-wheel-drive R8 as a regular production model and because — for the most part — we’ve been good boys and girls this year, Audi’s also giving the U.S. market the added treat of a limited edition model called the R8 Panther Edition. The special edition R8 is exclusive to the Land of the Free, and, among other exclusive goodies, the R8 Panther wears a special paint color that Audi rarely uses. No doubt the Panther Black crystal effect paint solidifies the R8 Panther’s special edition status, just as it did on the RS5 Panther Edition that debuted at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show. Only 30 units of the R8 RWD Panther are headed to the U.S. where they’ll be sold through select dealerships beginning this month. Each unit of the R8 RWD Panther will carry a starting price of $186,495, including the $1,495 destination charge on top of a $1,700 gas guzzler tax.

In the meantime, Audi will continue freshening the current TT with a bevy of special edition models, including the new “bronze selection” that’s scheduled to hit European markets in the spring of 2021.

Packing visual upgrades of the burnished chestnut persuasion, the special edition model is available in the coupe and roadster versions of the TT and TTS via a bronze selection package that you can add to the cost of the sports car.

2021 Audi TT RS 40 Years of Quattro

New special edition TT RS celebrates Audi’s greatest innovation

Audi is famous for a lot of innovations in the history of the auto industry, but none have been as impactful to the automaker as the quattro all-wheel-drive system. Introduced at the 1980 Geneva Motor Show, the quattro all-wheel-drive system has become a foundational piece of all of Audi’s road-going performance cars.

It’s only right that with the quattro system celebrating its 40th anniversary, Audi is launching a special edition TT RS to commemorate the occasion. The special edition model is called the 40 Years of quattro, as fitting a name as any SE model Audi has released in recent memory.

2021 Audi RS6 Avant RS Tribute Edition

The Tribute Edition features only aesthetic changes and is limited to merely 25 examples

There’s no denying that the Audi RS6 Avant is one hell of a beast. With almost 600 horses under the hood, this wagon can hit the 60 mph mark in no time. Such is its popularity that it has even become a popular vehicle amongst tuners.

It didn’t have a presence in the U.S. until now, but the automaker decided to bring it to our shores as well. Earlier this year, the German automaker announced the six-digit pricing for the U.S.-spec RS6 Avant. To make RS6 Avant’s arrival here even special, Audi has announced a limited-edition RS6 Avant “Tribute Edition” that pays homage to the yesteryear RS2 Avant.
