Audi RS Q3 Concept

Audi RS Q3 Concept

The RS Q3 concept shown at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show has a 2.5 TFSI 265 kW turbocharged 5 cylinder direct injection engine, a 0 – 100 kph acceleration of 5.2 seconds and a top speed of 265 kph.

The engine fitted on the RS Q3 also happens to be the same engine fitted on the Audi TT RS and RS3 albeit tuned to provide a bit more power.

The RS Q3 engine is mated to a seven-speed S tronic gearbox that transfers the power to quattro permanent all-wheel drive.

The ride height on the RS Q3 concept has been lowered by 25mm, and the width of the vehicle has been widened to give it that added sharp visual detail.

It features a single frame radiator grille with black grille inserts with a new offset honeycomb pattern.

Headlights are slightly tinted and inside them some chrome parts are dark or covered by panels of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP). The front bumper has also been redesigned and the lower spoiler is made from CFRP.

At the rear, the lower bumper section has a sporty and angular style. The diffuser insert, which integrates the two large elliptical tailpipes in typical RS look, has been shifted far upward.

The rear lights and auxiliary lights in the bumper are tinted in anthracite and are made of clear glass.

In general the styling and performance of this Q3 is befitting of the RS badge.

We wonder if they’ll actually produce this, we are sure it would be entertaining to drive.
