Audi RS3 - steering wheel and instrument panel revealed
TheAudi RS3 has been confirmed again: this time thanks to a series of images that show the car’s steering wheel and instrument panel. And at a first look you’ll notice that the odometers says 310 km/h (192 mph). But before you’ll get to excited you must know that the future RS3 will be limited to 155 mph.
It will be powered by the same 2.5 liter, 5-cylinder turbocharged engine that is found in the TT-RS, but with the output increased by 10 HP (going up to 350 HP). The engine will be mated to a new 7-speed S-trinic gearbox (PQ500 unit) as an option (also available on TT RS for ordering now).
The official debut has been announced for 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Also Audi said there will be only 2,700 units built - the exact same number as the BMW 1-Series M Coupe built. The RS3 will carry a price tag of around $60K.
