The high-performance version of the new A3 will rival the likes of BMW’s M135i and the upcoming Mercedes-Benz A45 AMGThe S3 will get an all-new 2.0-litre TFSI engine, which has been designed specifically for it. Technical highlights include a new lightweight alloy cylinder head and a sound flap in the exhaust system to improve the engine note. The new powertrain will produce 296bhp and 280lb ft of torque, enough to blast the S3 from 0-62mph in 5.1 seconds.

 

 

Audi’s latest four-wheel-drive system will be fitted as standard, and two transmission options will be available: a manual or a dual-clutch system, both six-speed. The new model will get Audi’s Drive Select system, which allows the driver to alter throttle response, steering weight and, when the dual-clutch gearbox is specified, the shift point. The S3 will offer LED headlamps as an optional extra.

Audi says that the new S3 will arrive in dealerships in early 2013. UK prices have yet to be confirmed, but are expected to start around £31,000.
