Audi Sport is the German automaker's in-house tuner shop. Its engineers build hot rods. Luxurious all-wheel drive hot rods. The team not only created the R8 supercar but also injects performance into Audi's humbler models. Their creations include the 605-horsepower RS 7, the TT RS, and RS 5, which are some of the quickest, fastest and best-handling machines in the world.
The RS 3 is the most affordable Audi Sport model, but the 400-hp compact sedan is also the most expensive and most powerful member of Audi’s extensive A3 lineup. The RS 3 competes with the two-door BMW M2 coupe, the four-door Mercedes AMG CLA 45, and the larger and more expensive BMW M3, Cadillac ATS-V, and Mercedes AMG C43 and AMG C 63 sedans.
