The Audi RS3 is a hatchback that is equipped with a large five-cylinder engine that is designed to keep fuel consumption to a minimum without compromising on the vehicle's performance. The turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder motor is capable of pumping out 367 horsepower, allowing the car to zoom from zero to 100 km/h in only 4.3 seconds. The engine produces 343 pounds-feet of torque for highly responsive in-gear performance.

The Audi RS3 is equipped with all-wheel drive, with its quattro system managed by an electronically controlled and hydraulically actuated central clutch that delivers between 50 and 100 percent of power to the rear wheels.

The vehicle is even capable of performing controlled drifts when exiting corners, before its front wheels pull the car straight.

The Audi RS3 will be available starting mid-2015, although Audi hasn't yet revealed any details about pricing.
