The Audi RS 3 Sportback is the hot hatch version of the Audi A3 in the Asphalt series.
The Audi RS 3 Sportback is the hot hatch version of the Audi A3 compact luxury hatchback. It had a limited production between 2011 and 2012 and was available exclusively in 5 door hatchback form. In fact, the Audi RS 3 Sportback is one of the few 5 door hot hatches in the Asphalt series, not just Asphalt 8: Airborne.
The RS 3's turbocharged 2.5L inline-five engine was sourced from the Audi TT RS Coupé, which was priced higher than the RS 3. Unlike the TT RS Coupé, no manual option was provided with a 7-speed S-tronic twin-clutch automatic transmission being standard across the board. A total of 750 units were produced.
