What more proof that Audi is seriously considering the introduction of a high-performance S or RS version of its newly launched Q3 compact SUV than the creation of a prototype model shown at a media event?
According to the folks over at Sweden’s Sportbilen, the prototype was uncovered during the European press launch of the new Audi Q3in Zurich, Switzerland. And mind you, this wasn’t a static presentation as the media had the chance to drive the pre-production model on the road.
The high-performance Q3 is said to be fitted with a de-tuned version of the 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine found in the RS3 hot hatch and the TT RS sports models, delivering 300-horsepower instead of 340HP. Power is transferred to all-four wheels through Audi’s quattro system and a 7-speed dual-clutch S-tronic transmission.
Watch the super-Q3 in action in the video below.
