The wait is over, you can now place an order for these incredible cars.
The new 2.5-litre five cylinder TFSI quattro engine produces 400PS and 480NM of torque, powering the RS 3 from 0-62 mph in just 4.1 seconds.
Top speed is limited to 155mph, but de-restriction to 174mph is optional.
"With the 2017 model packing 33bhp more than the previous RS3 hatchback, giving a total of 394bhp, Audi is clearly back to playing Top Trumps."
Neil Winn, WhatCar?
"Of course, the beauty of the old RS 3 was its ability to fit into your life without the compromises of a pure-bred sports car. This new Saloon version offers almost all the performance of a TT RS, but with usable back seats and a 390-litre boot"
Richard Ingram, Auto Express
"Pinch yourself – you now live in the same world as a 400-horsepower production hatchback. The sort of exotic output once reserved for multi-cylinder monsters is now available in the Audi RS3"
Adam Binnie, Car Magazine
