“It was born on the track, built for the road,” explains new Audi Sport boss Stephan Winkelmann.
He’s talking about the new Audi RS3 saloon. Sorry, sedan, because Audi reckons it’ll sell more of these in the US and the Asia Pacific region than in Europe, though we’ll still be able to buy it here.
That’s good news, because a 395bhp 2.5-litre five-pot and 0-62mph in 4.1 seconds is something we very much require in our lives. Contrary to the boss’s musings, you can also have a track-ready 326bhp RS3 LMS for around £100,000.
