Audacious Audi S3
Audi S3 is the top-of-the-rung, high-performance version of the Audi A3 sedan.
Developed by Audi in 1996, the A3 sedan went on to achieve many accolades including the 2015 World Car of the Year. The S3 builds on that solid base with the improvements expected of an Audi S-badged machine.
The S3 delivers zero to 60 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds due to a two-litre, 290 horsepower turbocharged engine. 280lb-ft of torque is available from 1,350 rpm to 4,500 rpm. All that power is fed easily through the only transmission choice, Audi’s six-speed, S-tronic Dual Clutch gearbox that allows both manual and automatic shifting. It wouldn’t be a high-performance Audi without Quattro, the company’s revolutionary permanent all-wheel-drive technology, now bolstered by the latest in electronics making it truly intelligent.
Starting at $8,990,000, this includes 5 years’ warranty, 5 years’ service, 5 years’ roadside assistance, 3 years’ fuel.
