Audi surprises journalists at Q3 launch with the Q3 2.5 TFSI (Q3 RS) prototype
So all the Q3 RS discussion has been confirmed and a prototype does exist. The Q3 launch event was held in Switzerland and Audi decided to show up with a Q3 sporting the TT-RS drivetrain. The small SUV has the 2.5 TFSI turbo 5 cylinder as rumored and it is mated to a 7 speed DSG gearbox. Some people are saying it is detuned to 300 horsepower others are saying it has the full 340 hp. Either way, the car is a year away but it is coming. US prospects are getting dimmer as Audi is likely not to bring this generation of the Q3 over.
