Five-cylinder pocket punch

Audi is bringing back ghosts of Quattro past with the new RS3 Sedan, unveiled at the Paris motor show.

This pocket rocket packs an almighty punch, the 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbo engine producing 294kW and 480Nm. This makes it the most powerful five-cylinder engine available on the market. The RS3 Sedan will sprint to 100km/h in a swift 4.1sec, before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 280km/h. Audi says the harder and faster you drive the RS3, the more torque will be apportioned to the rear wheels, meaning the sedan has “especially agile driving characteristics”.
