The first generation of the Audi RS3 was born in 2011 as a super sports version of the contemporary A3 2nd gen. Among the aesthetic improvements that have made the RS3 recognizable from the A3 and S3 are the air intakes and widened mudguards, as well as the eye-catching 19-inch alloy wheels behind which there are massive disc brakes. A 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox is combined with the prodigious 5-cylinder in-line that made its debut with the 2009 TT RS and which still today, even if suitably modified, equips many Audi sports cars. The traction is strictly AWD.
