It seems as if there’s nothing the Audi RS3 can’t do. We recently discussed how it is probably the best hot hatch on the market and Audi seems hellbent on proving that. In a new video campaign, Audi is showing off the capabilities of the RS3’s rally-bred Quattro all-wheel drive system. In this video, named Audi RS3 vs H20, Audi demonstrates the RS3’s ability to shrug off hydroplaning by racing a boat on the beach.
During this race, the RS3 storms through the waves breaking on the beach and deep, soft sand. This seems like it would be near impossible for any other car, but the RS3 trucks on through. It slides around a bit, but never gets stuck. It just pushed forward with the fury of that 2.5 liter turbocharged I5 engine powering all four wheels. Our admiration for the RS3, here at QuattroDaily, is well known but this might have grown it even further.
Even if this video is just a campy commercial for the RS3, it’s still very enjoyable to watch and behold. The RS3 is the best hot hatch on the market and this video just proves it even more so.
