Audi shows off RS3 Sportback in Nardo Grey

Audi has released a photo gallery with a brand new RS3 Sportback painted in Nardo Grey. The vehicle has been pampered with the Audi Exclusive treatment and comes with a glossy black exterior package with high gloss side mirror caps, five-arm rotor design 19-inch alloy wheels with an anthracite black looks along with an RS exhaust system.

Stepping inside the cabin, the door panels have body-colored decorative inserts while the leather upholstery has fine Nappa inserts and leather orange seams. Also noticeable is the orange diamond quilting on the S sport seats along with a perforated leather on the steering wheel and shift knob which both have orange seams. There’s also a flat-bottomed multifunction steering wheel with a three-spoke design and paddle shifters.

Underneath the hood is the same 5-cylinder, 2.5-liter TFSI engine unleashing 367 PS (270 kW) and 465 Nm (342 lb-ft) channeled to a quattro all-wheel drive system through a 7-speed S tronic gearbox. It enables the hot hatchback to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in 4.3 seconds before topping out at an electronically-limited 155 mph (250 km/h). Upon request, the customer can ask Audi to raise the limiter to 174 mph (280 km/h).
