Et en marge du Mondial 2022 - Audi RS 3 Performance, le 5 cylindres au summum

And on the sidelines of the 2022 World Cup – Audi RS 3 Performance, the 5-cylinder at its peak

“And aside from the 2022 World Cup”…

Why this section? Because there are many new products this fall, and you certainly expect to see them all on our “Mondial de l’auto” mini-site, where you traditionally find new models from all manufacturers.

However, since several manufacturers have chosen not to be present at this edition of the 2022 Paris Motor Show, a certain number of new products will not be exhibited at the Porte de Versailles in Paris, and in particular the one presented in this article. However, to give you a comprehensive overview and meet your expectations, we have chosen to publish them on the Caradisiac mini-site dedicated to the Paris Motor Show, but in a special section “And outside the Paris Motor Show”. .

Of the five cylinders in line, there is currently only one on the car market: it is the block shared by the Audi RS 3 and TT-RS, but also the Cupra Formentor in its VZ5 version. An engine unanimously acclaimed for its performance and character, but above all for its magnificent sound. On the occasion of the presentation of the new Performance version, Audi once again celebrates this mechanic that is currently experiencing its last years of career.

The Audi RS3 Performance will be available in Sportback and Sedan

The RS 3 Performance takes its output to 407 horsepower instead of the overall 400, which is close to the 421 horsepower of the Mercedes-AMG A45 S four-cylinder or the latest BMW M2 and its inline 3-cylinder six. , 0 liters of 460 horsepower. Thanks to a boost pressure increased by 0.1 bar, the maximum torque of 500 Nm is now obtained in a slightly wider range of availability (up to 7000 rpm or 100 rpm gain, a bit nothing).

Apart from this small increase in power, the RS 3 Performance does not include any other mechanical improvements. But it fulfills all the interesting dynamic options of the normal stock RS 3: the sports exhaust, but also the optional Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo R semi-slip tires, as well as the RS Sport suspension with adaptive damping and rubber brakes. ceramic, saving 10 kilos on the scale. Above all, we find the famous rear differential and its pair of clutches, capable of turning the RS 3 into a true “drifteuse”.

300 copies, from €87,000

This Audi RS 3 Performance, which also features RS Performance sports seats as standard, will be limited to just 300 units worldwide in Sportback and sedan versions. Audi France specifies that it will be negotiated with us from €87,000 in Sportback (€17,000 more than the normal RS 3!), but we do not yet know the number of copies planned for France.

Caradisiac, partner of the Paris Motor Show

As in 2018, Caradisiac is once again a partner in 2022 of the Mondial de l’Auto which will take place in Paris from October 17 to 23. Caradisiac’s editorial team will thus move to its own stand for the duration of the show to analyse, dissect, photograph and film all the new models. And this, of course, will also be an opportunity for you to come, as you are used to, to meet our journalists. What new or used car to buy? They will answer all your questions. Until then, we will give you in Caradisiac all the information that we have been able to obtain from the manufacturers about their new models.
