This car won't be coming to the United States

Audi is known to make some very interesting performance vehicles and a new car from the brand has turned up called the 2014 S3 Sportback . Sadly, the car isn't coming to the United States. Fans of hot hatchbacks in Europe will be able to pick up the S3 Sportback and it is powered by a 300 hp 280 pound-foot of torque two-liter direct injection turbo engine.

The little car is able to hit 62 mph in 5 seconds when equipped with the S Tronic transmission. Despite its performance, Audi promises 40.9 mpg. The vehicle uses Audi's Quattro all-wheel drive system and has a number of options.

The Sportback is 1.37-inches longer than the standard three-door S3. Options include magnetic ride suspension, and full LED headlamps. The car comes stock with Napa leather with Alcantara as a no-cost option.
