We list the top speed as well as the engine performance and 0-100 km/h sprint times of the Audi RS3.
Audi is well-known for manufacturing highly specified luxury models, but there is a racing side of the brand, too, namely RS or, rather, Racing Sport. The RS moniker not only translates to sportier trim pieces inside and out but also improves the performance of a specific model. In this article, we will focus on the RS3 specifically and find out what the top speed is, as well as how Audi managed to achieve that.
But before we get into the details, remember that if you are searching for new or used Audi RS3 models on AutoTrader, you can also sell your car quickly and easily on our platform and join thousands of happy sellers.
Audi RS3 top speed
The Audi RS3 is available in two configurations: a hatchback and a sedan. Both are powered by identical engines, meaning both will reach a top speed of 250 km/h. Customers can optionally, and at a cost, have the electronic limiter adjusted to allow the RS3 to go up to 290 km/h. That is significantly higher than the 241 km/h (hatch) and 248 km/h (sedan) you can expect from the A3 range it is based on.
Audi RS3 engine performance and 0-100 km/h time
Under the bonnet of the Audi RS3, you can expect to find a 2.5-litre, turbocharged, 5-cylinder petrol engine sending 294 kW and 500 Nm to all four wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. This results in a 0-100 km/h sprint of just 3.8 seconds. This is on the sedan and hatch or, rather, the Sportback model.
