2014 Audi RS Q3 leaked [VIDEO ADDED]
Could have 360 HP (265 kW)
The first pictures of the 2014 Audi RS Q3 production version have leaked to the web, ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
Looking bold and aggressive, the crossover has a unique front bumper with large air intakes, honeycomb mesh grille inserts and matte aluminum trim. Moving further back, we can see aerodynamic side skirts, a reduced ride height and massive alloy wheels. Lastly, there’s a tailgate-mounted spoiler and a prominent rear diffuser.
The driver-focused cabin comes nicely equipped with a flat-bottomed steering wheel, diamond-quilted leather seats and alloy pedals. There’s aluminum trim and white contrast stitching.
Like the RS Q3 concept, the production model will likely feature a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder petrol engine that develops 360 HP (265 kW). It should be connected to a seven-speed S tronic and a quattro all-wheel drive system. This setup enabled the concept to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.2 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 265 km/h (165 mph).
