    Audi decides to take on 1 M coupe - RS3 coming

    Leaked photos of the RS3 gauge cluster as well as photos of the car testing on the Nurburgring have confirmed what many suspected, Audi is readying an RS3. We do not have any specs but the car will likely share the TT-RS drivetrain (2.5 liter 5 cylinder, around 350 hp) which makes the most sense. If that is true, the car is going to be the main rival for the 1 series M coupe. The other question becomes, will Audi even be able to get this car to the US? They did not bring the TT-RS over until it was deemed there was enough interest and the USA has yet to get the RS6 so who knows. We will keep you updated, but Audi clearly is aiming for BMW.

    This is going to be wonderful! In most real world situation this car will be much faster than the 1 M coupe due to Quattro and if it shared the TT-RS motor it will have much more power. Audi has BMW outgunned and keeps raising the bar!

    2.5L Straight 5 vs 3.0L Straight 6, should be interesting.


    I say the BMW motor will come out on top in the long run, considering it has more displacement, and is the more mechanically-balanced design.

    The RS3 is kind of ugly to me.

    If it only comes in 4-door form it will be way heavier especially with AWD. The TT-RS would really be a better match based on driving dynamics.

    Just to save Footie from having to respond, yes, the Audi will be faster around a track during a torrential downpour or snow storm, when people usually are out driving their performance cars.

    These are new FSI motors though, so not quite the same since they are direct injection and what you referenced is not.

    ^ That is a bolt on motor?


    Is this new TTRS motor closed deck and iron? Does it have forged pistons/rods and a sturdy crank? I haven't done any research on it, but I'm assuming it is "modernized" like the N54, and I don't see any advantages to less displacement and an odd cylinder count.


    That is like me pointing to a built S52......

    yeah exactly it is a 2.5L so more displacement and also these new audi fsi motors are very easy to make power out of!

    So is the N54 but they are limited in maximum power potential due to fueling issues due to direct injection.

    No U.S. buyer is going to cross shop the RS3 and the 1M Coupe... in Europe the A3 and 1 Series compete because the 1 Series also comes in a 5 door hatch design just like the A3. But in the States, the RS3 is a 5 door hatch while the 1M is a Coupe. And Audi is against exporting their cars anyways lol

    Wait a minute a 2.2l motor hitting 1k+ horsepower on boost? Wow! Double WOW! Thats just insane. I cant imagine the type of skilled world class engineering that went into this drivetrain...

    Does anyone know what the rs3 is going to weigh? Im guessing it will be as heavy or heavier than the current 135.

    isnt the 1m the inline 6 3.0L twin turbo? (n54) and the rs3 is a 2.5L 5 cylinder k04 turbo. i dont think either will kill either. 2.5l k04 has a lot of power esp when it is tuned right. and yes i am saying it will hang really close in a strait line to a chipped 335,135, etc with same supporting bolt on mods

    this will be interesting when it comes out. i'm sorry but i'm going with the rs3 on this one.




    the rs3 same engine as audi ttrs^ vs z4m which i can say is maybe a lil faster than stock 335i/135i or exactly the same in the top end region.

    Didn't Audi decide to bring the TT-RS here because of the popularity on Facebook or something?

    It will likely be in the 3500 pound range.

    Some additional details:

    Summary of what we know:
    - Designed to compete with BMW M1
    - Will get 340 bhp, 0-100 kph in 4.4 seconds top speed limited to 250 kph
    - Performance figures in line with TT-RS
    - Wider tyres at the front because cost of extended rear wheel arches was perceived to be too much
    - Only available with DSG (unconfirmed)
    - Only available as a Sportback (unconfirmed)
    - Limited to 2,700 units worldwide (unconfirmed, if true, the reason is to justify a higher price)
    - Handling characteristics dramatically different to S3 due to new suspension components and set-up.
    - Makes use of aluminium for suspension, bonnet and tailgate (unconfirmed).
