2017/67 Audi RS3 8V Sportback 2.5 TFSI Quattro S-Tronic | £8,300 of Factory Extras | Matrix Lights | Pan Roof | SuperSport Seats

This Ara Blue Crystal RS3 with Aluminum Styling Pack oozes Elegance & Sophistication compared to other colour combination RS’s on the market. Its Aluminium Exterior Contrasts in particular adds real presence and width to its Sportback body on the road. The Ara Blue paint is a beautiful colour, mesmerising in sunlight with its Silver & Blue Crystal-Effect which really ensures this RS3 looks special. Presented to you in utterly perfect condition after being refined by our expert detailing team prior to sale after our signature Multi-Stage Machine Paintwork Correction, as our detail photos show.
Leaving the factory with almost £8,500 of Factory Optional Extras, this car has one of the most desirable specifications we have ever had. Highly desirable Panoramic Glass Sunroof (£1,075) omits sunlight into the cabin on those gloomy days, can slide back on sunny days so you can make the most of the weather & the rear can be tilted if you just want to hear that 5-Cylinder Soundtrack more pronounced and raw in the cockpit!
Matrix LED Headlights (£895) integrates the latest lighting technology into a small package; providing optimum lighting without dazzling other road users or the driver, by automatically dipping or turning off individual lighting diodes to create corridors of light either side of the vehicle or object infront.
This RS3 also enjoys an enviable driving environment too. Upon entering the cockpit, you’ll be sitting in Red Diamond-Stitched SuperSport Seats (£795). The optional Comfort and Sound Pack (£995), provides the superb Bang and Olufsen Sound System, in addition to Audi’s Rear View Reversing Camera, Advanced Key and Hill-Hold Assist
Almost 500BHP has been extracted on this instance from Audi’s award winning 5-cylinder engine. As electrification takes over the car industry; enjoy this theatrical and emotional engine whilst you can with its seductive soundtrack and gut churning power delivery; before its too late!
Its condition is unrivalled; displaying Factory Original Finish to its Paintwork. This RS3 has never had any paintwork from new; this is guaranteed by us. It’s truly in mint condition, we were clutching at straws when writing the condition report for this car (on our website) we could only highlight ONE (YES ONE) stone chip. Full Audi/Specialist Service History, this car has been truly cared for by its previous keeper and is genuinely one of if not THE best 3-year old RS3’s we have ever had.
Crucially, this is an more desirable Non-OPF model (Petrol Particulate Filter) DAZA Engine RS3 (Something that kills the exhaust note sound of post-2019 RS3’s) meaning its 5-Cylinder Soundtrack is unmuffled through its £1,000 optional Audi RS Sport Exhaust system!
Being a Facelift Audi RS3 8V.2; it is equipped with the latest development of Audi’s 5 Cylinder Powerplant. An all-new Aluminum Engine Block that is 26kg lighter than the Iron Block it replaced along with a revised Fuel & Turbocharger System are only a handful of revisions to produce more power & torque towards the redline compared to the Pre-Facelift variants. Virtual Cockpit & Apple CarPlay are the biggest revisions inside the cabin.
The lustre of its Crystal Effect Ara Blue Paintwork has been amplified 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.
