2017/67 Audi RS3 8V Sportback 2.5 TFSI Quattro S-Tronic | APR Stage 1; 485BHP | £10,800 of Modifications | £5,600 Factory Extras

This MotorSport Inspired, Audi RS3 Sportback looks hard-edged, swollen and ready to tackle your favourite driving roads. 485 horsepower from its rally-inspired 5-cylinder Audi engine may be the headlines that grab you; however, it’s the components that are hiding underneath it’s Ara Blue body that is the most impressive aspect of this RS3!
Sitting low on its KW V3 fully-adjustable coilovers, with meaty Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres on lightweight HLT 19-inch O.Z. wheels, harbouring gigantic Alcon 380mm & AP Racing 2-Piece brake discs front and rear. H&R rear anti-roll bar and an expert 4-wheel corner weight and geometry setup at chassis tuning wizards at Track Torque Racing completes the setup of this driver focused RS3. This is ONE OF THE BEST handling RS3’s we have ever had, ready to devour your favourite B-Road whilst being able to be docile to drive during your daily commute; not many performance cars can do this better.
The supercar-slaying abilities of Audi’s RS3 have been further improved thanks to a APR ECU-Tune that has extracted 485BHP & 625NM of torque. The industry leading TVS Engineering TCU Gearbox calibration also allows the new owner to make the most of this amazing acceleration, with lightening fast, crisper shifts at every speed. If this is the kind of five-cylinder fury you might enjoy, get in touch with us before this car is gone
The Ara Blue paint is a beautiful colour, mesmerising in sunlight with its Silver & Blue Crystal-Effect which really ensures this RS3 looks as special as it is to drive. Gloss Black Styling Package (£800) and Red RS Calipers (£325) creates a menacing appearance; particularly on the road. Presented to you in utterly perfect condition after our 40-Hour Detailing Process which includes a Multi-Stage Machine Paintwork Correction to all areas; we photograph our cars under 3,000 Watt of LED Light to showcase the quality of our Vehicle Preparation which is truly Market Leading.
Crucially, this is an Non-OPF (Petrol Particulate Filter) DAZA Engine RS3 (Something that kills the exhaust note sound of post-2019 RS3’s) Equipped with the optional Audi RS Sport Exhaust system which ensures you can thoroughly enjoy the soundtrack from the wonderful 5-Cylinder TFSI engine
As you would expect this car has been pampered by its 1 Enthusiastic RS keeper since its first registration, those who invest £10,800 plus fitting into modifications, tend to treat them with the upmost respect.
