Audi commemorates the tenth anniversary of the Audi RS Q3 with a sporty, unique model called the Audi RS Q3 edition 10 years. It is restricted to 555 units worldwide and is available in both RS Q3 and RS Q3 Sportback configurations. Since its introduction in 2013, the compact sports model has firmly established itself in the market, and the second generation, which came in 2019, produces 400 hp and 480 Nm of torque. The iconic 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbo engine gives power to the Audi RS Q3 edition for 10 years.
To properly commemorate the RS Q3, Audi provides, among other things, the color Dew Silver matt effect, which is new to the Audi RS Q3 color palette this year. Another unique feature of the particular variant is the black 21-inch light alloy wheels with double spokes and 225/35 tires. The 19-inch high-performance braking system with carbon fiber reinforced ceramic brake discs at the front is available as an option. This means that the brake calipers are painted in high-gloss anthracite gray as standard, with the option of red or blue for an extra fee.
A considerable number of components in black or high-gloss black enhance the distinctive appearance of the edition 10 years model, such as the dark-tinted Matrix LED headlights with dynamic turn signals and the side mirror housings. The roof frame, window sill strips, and door strip inlays are all finished in high-gloss black, as are the spoiler strips on the front spoiler and the diffuser insert. The four rings in the single-frame grill and on the rear end, as well as the model markings in high-gloss black, round off the athletic look.
You sit in new bowl-shaped RS seats designed for the special model in the cabin. The backrest cover in matte carbon fiber, employed for the first time in the Audi RS Q3, is a special feature. The bowl-shaped chairs are upholstered in black and deep black Dinamica - the new, sporty, beautiful color hue. Dinamica is a microfiber material comprised of approximately 45% recycled PET fibers. It is also used on the instrument panel inlay and the seats.
The solid five-cylinder 2.5 TFSI engine powers the Audi RS Q3 and Audi RS Q3 Sportback. With 400 horsepower, it now outperforms the previous iteration of the RS Q3, which had its output upped to 340 horsepower in 2015. It is 29% faster than the earlier version from 2013, which had 310 horsepower. Between 2,250 and 5,850 rpm, the maximum torque of 480 Nm is available. The Audi RS Q3 and Audi RS Q3 Sportback sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in approximately 4.5 seconds. Their top speed is electrically limited to 250 km/h; however, the RS Q3 may reach 280 km/h as an option.
The twin-pipe RS exhaust system enhances the five-cylinder engine's distinctive sound, and the optional RS sports exhaust system sharpens the sound even more. The prized "International Engine of the Year Award" has been bestowed to the five-cylinder engine nine times in a row. The power from the five-cylinder engine is delivered to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system via a 7-speed S tronic transmission as standard.
