VIDEO: Audi Q3 RS Prototype… 300-HP Sounds Sweet!

Last week it was reported that Audi is working on a high-performance version of the Audi Q3, dubbed the Audi Q3 RS. The reports claimed that the Audi Q3 RS would be powered by the same 300 horsepower 2.5L turbocharged engine as the TT RS and RS3.

Well here is more proof that the hotter Q3 is coming. The guys over at Sweden’s Audi_Q3_RS_Prototype_2.5L.pngSportbilen were lucky enough to get behind the wheel of a Q3 RS prototype at a recent press event for the Q3 in Zurich, Switzerland. The Q3 RS prototype had the detuned 2.5L engine from the TT RS and RS3 under the hood. The engine is mated to a seven-speed transmission and Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system.
