Audi RS3 with carbon fiber & Alcantara interior is a thing of beauty

The Audi RS3 is already a very desirable car, but Neidfaktor decided to make it even more appealing.

They covered the interior cabin of the mega-hatch from Ingolstadt in a combination of Alcantara and carbon fiber and dare we say they did an exceptional job. You will notice the bases of the front seats are now from carbon fiber while the inside of the cup holders has been wrapped around in Alcantara. The attention to detail is simply amazing as even the door handles use carbon fiber, also found on the center tunnel and the gear shift knob.

Alcantara was used throughout the cabin and the most visible area is the headliner that’s now dressed in this high-end material. The gear shift paddles come in carbon fiber and blend nicely with the flat-bottomed steering wheel featuring accents of the same type of material.

Taking into account a standard RS3 Sportback kicks off at €52,700 in Germany, this heavily customized car probably costs well over €70,000. It’s a hard pill to swallow for most people in the market for a compact high-performance car, but if you are a diehard Audi fan looking for something special, it’s definitely worth it. Matching the gorgeous looks of the interior is the iconic 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine, a true engineering gem.
