A few days ago, TFLC was one of the publications to experience the new Audi RS3 Sedan and TT RS at Lime Rock Park. They put out a video of five interesting facts about the TT RS and it showed us quite a bit. However, there was an embargo on certain information, so they couldn’t get into all of it. In this new video, TFLC shows off a bit more of the RS3 Sedan.
There are quite a few surprises about the Audi RS3 Sedan that they go through in this video. One being the sound of the engine. Its 2.5 liter turbocharged I5 engine is one of the best in the business. But what makes it unique is its odd firing order, which helps give it a wild sound. Apparently, Audi claims that it sounds like an angry V8. We disagree, it sounds like an angry I5. It sounds like what it is and it sounds fantastic, so don’t be ashamed of what it is, Audi.
They also point out that the RS3 is a very fast car with 400 hp but can easily seat five people (if at lease two of them are children). With host Roman Mica in the front seat, it seems as if there’s enough space in the rear for him to sit behind himself and he’s quite tall. That’s impressive in a small sedan and one that’s so fast.
It’s also capable of hitting 174 mph, which is pretty fast for a little sedan right from the factory. So imagine having a small sedan that can fit four adults and all of their stuff and also hit 174 mph. Throw in the fact that it sounds the way it does and looks awesome and it’s tough to find a cooler sedan at the price.
