Second chance Audi RS3 for UK

After the initial sell-out of the 500 UK-bound Audi RS3s, the company is bringing a further 250 to the country after continued demand

A further batch of 250 right hand drive RS3 Sportbacks will be released into the UK market, due to the high demand of the 2.5-litre 335bhp hot hatch. 500 cars were initially sold last year, and very quickly sold out.

This second batch of RS3s will carry the same £39,930 price-tag as before, and Audi claims that this extra capacity is a response to 'consistent demand' in the UK for the model, and is available to order now.

19-inch wheels are standard, as are the carbon fibre-reinforced polymer flared wheel arches and roof spoiler. With 335bhp and 332lb ft from its turbocharged five-pot engine, the RS3 is capable of hitting 62mph in 4.6 seconds, while providing respectable 31mpg economy, 212g/km CO2 emmisions.
