Hold your horses: It’s just a sketch but this rendered RS3 Cabrio may get 400hp if it reaches production!
The new Audi RS3 will be aimed squarely at its two other key German rivals; the BMW M135i and Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG. Building on the success of the Audi S3, the yet-to-be-developed RS3 will get an uprated suspension system, more power and a lower kerb weight. Rumour has it that the RS3 will use the…
New Japanese Frontier pushes forward: Nissan Pulsar challenges Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus for their territory
These pictures haven’t set our pulse racing just yet but a GTi-R version might! Remember the 1980s Pulsar GTI-R with its 227bhp turbocharged version of the Primera engine? It was pretty hot on the modified car scene! Apparently there’s a 2015 version which will boast sportier looks and a 3.8-litre twin-turbo engine but this is…
On sale late summer
Audi has taken the wraps off the 2015 A7/S7 Sportback facelift which is programmed to go on sale towards the end of the summer.
The mild makeover starts at the front where the A7/S7 duo has received a tweaked single-frame grille as well as a reshaped bumper while the Matrix LED headlights are now optionally available and come with dynamic turn signals that are standard on the taillights. The back changes are limited as we only notice a modestly revised bumper and updated exhaust pipes.
On the inside there aren’t any significant differences but Audi has added new materials such as the aluminum/Beaufort walnut inlay and Valcona leather, along with a revised color palette that includes five hues for the seats.
In terms of motorization, the updated A7 Sportback can be had with Audi’s recently introduced V6 3.0 TDI Clean Diesel outputting 272 PS (200 kW) or 218 PS (160 kW) in the more frugal “ultra” variant where it returns 50 mpg US (60 mpg UK or 4.7 liters / 100 km) with CO2 emissions of 122 g/km.
There’s also a more powerful 3.0 TDI bi-turbo with 320 PS (235 kW) mated to an 8-speed tiptronic gearbox while the rest of the engines come with a 7-speed S tronic. Speaking of other engines, Audi offers a 4.0 TFSI with 450 PS (331 kW) for the hotter S7 derivative which benefits from cylinder-on-demand technology.
Audi has updated the MMI Navigation plus with MMI touch which now benefits from an Nvidia graphics processor and comes as standard with Internet connectivity via LTE. Assistance systems include night vision, adaptive cruise control with stop & go function, active lane assist, side assist and Audi’s pre sense safety system.
Sales of the A7/S7 facelift are slated to kick off late this summer at a starting price in Germany of 51,300 EUR for the A7 and 82,300 EUR for the S7.

Skoda CitiJet concept
Created by Skoda’s apprentices
Czech automaker Skoda has revealed online the CitiJet concept, prior to a public debut set for next weekend at Wörthersee.
After a couple of teasers, Skoda is just about ready to present a cabrio conversion for the Citigo which was created over the course of six months by sixteen of the firm’s apprentices with guidance from Skoda’s head designer Jozef Kaban. They all agreed the roof and rear seats have to be removed in order to create a “dynamic and expressively designed city-convertible.”
The body received blue metallic paint with white accents, 16-inch blue alloys and a hand-built rear spoiler at the back where we also find two exhaust pipes. Under the hood is a tiny 1.0 MPI delivering 75 PS (55 kW) sourced from the regular Volkswagen up!-based Citigo.
Moving inside there’s a three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel with red stitching, along with leather-covered gear knob and handbrake handle. The dashboard has received a white and red finish while for entertainment the CitiJet boasts a 300-watt audio system together with a music-reactive LED lightning.
Skoda is not the only automaker within the Volkswagen Group heading to Wörthersee with a car featuring a chopped off roof as Seat will be doing the same thing with its Ibiza-based Cupster concept.
