First RS SUV offered from Audi

Audi has announced that it will be debuting its first SUV to get RS treatment in Geneva. At the Geneva Motor Shell Audi will unveil the new RS Q3 that is based on the concept that originally appeared at Auto China in 2012. The RS Q3 will use a 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine.

The engine is rated for 310 hp and promises to push the vehicle to 100 km an hour in 5.5 seconds with a top speed electronically limited to 250 km an hour. The RS version gets a high gloss black honeycomb grille, RS bumpers, a Quattro emblem, and sports suspension. The special suspension lowers the car by 25 mm.

The standard interior has piano black inlays with optional aluminum race or carbon fiber available. The vehicle is expected to go on sale in Europe this fall and no plans to launch the car in the US have been announced at this time. Pricing is unknown.

Sep 18 2014 4:58pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Sep 18 2014 3:00pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

It has a Nissan GT-R engine and a Dallara-built carbon-fiber tub, and—if you have $400,000 sitting around—you can buy one and enter what’s likely to be a spectacular bangs-and-bumps pro-am championship racing series.
