Last June, we had already learned that the new Audi RS3 would be offered in Sportback bodywork and as a 4-door sedan.

We also knew that it would receive the fabulous 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine, developing 400 hp.

Other figures have fallen: 0-100 km / h in 3.8 seconds, and 250 km / h in peak, even 290 km / h with the option "RS Dynamic Pack".

But this is not the most important.

Because we learn above all that Audi has chosen to replace the rear limited slip differential with an electric torque management device.

And this made it possible to add a driving mode to the Audi Drive Select, a mode dedicated to… drifting.

In short, if we often reproach the Audi, even the sporty Audi, for being a little too "clean", this will not be quite the case with the new RS3.

Attack price: € 61,900 in Sportback, € 63,300 in sedan.
