Audi shows off S3 Sedan with Glut Orange paint

Audi Deutschland posted on its official Facebook account several images by Gunter Stachon Photography depicting the S3 Sedan wearing a stunning Glut Orange exterior paint scheme. This isn’t a regular hue for the hot sedan as it can only be had through the Audi exclusive individualization program which at home in Germany costs €2,300.

Unveiled back in March 2013, the Audi S3 Sedan is a reputable compact sedan packing a 300 HP punch from a high-powered four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbo engine that offers a generous maximum torque of 380 Nm. In Europe the engine is mated as standard to a six-speed manual gearbox or an optional S tronic whereas the US-spec model can only be had with the latter.

In terms of performance, the S3 Sedan sprints to 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in 5.3 seconds when configured with the manual ‘box and in 4.9 seconds with the S tronic transmission. Regardless of gearbox choice, the S3 Sedan is electronically-capped at 155 mph (250 km/h).

If that’s not enough, you might want to wait for the RS3 which will likely be offered as a sedan as well. Under the hood it will carry a larger five-cylinder 2.5-liter turbocharged motor with around 360 HP or even 400 HP in a rumored RS3 Plus version.
