Audi RS3 gets 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine with 350 PS

Limited to only 2,700 units, good news announces the coming of the Audi RS3 and reports also speak about a slightly boosted version of the same 2.5-liter inline 5-cylinder TFSI power plant that was first featured by the TT RS model.
The information released by Auto Express speaks about the RS3 coming with 7-speed S tronic double-clutch gearbox and 350PS, which is 10 PS more when compared to the engine’s configuration in the TT RS model.
More to this, photos of the interior components have also been published by the British magazine, non-installed, including a speedometer that is able to reach 310 km/h and paddle shifters which come along with the steering wheel. It is most likely that the RS3 will be presented featuring an electronically set speed limiter that will provide the holding of the car at the 250 km/h mark.
