These are the latest digital interpretation of a very possible Audi RS3 Sedan. Theophilus Chin is the author of the renders and the model could actually become a reality in the following months as it is believed Audi USA will launch it for the 2016 model year. The RS3 has already been confirmed for United States and many are saying that it will be a sedan as opposed to the Sportback sold in Europe.
Whatever it will be, its heart and soul will be the same 5-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine with a 2.5 liter displacement and a total output of 367 hp and 324 lb-ft. It will likely be teamed up with an S tronic seven-speed transmission but we’ve heard Audi USA is also analyzing the prospects of selling the car with a six-speed manual. Regardless of the gearbox, the engine’s power will be sent to a quattro AWD system.
There’s no word about the performances of the Audi RS3 Sedan but these should be borderline identical to those of the RS3 Sportback: 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.3 seconds and a 155 mph (250 km/h) or 174 mph (280 km/h) top speed.
