    If you’ve been following Hoonigan’s Hoonicorn vs the World Series, based on the viewership figures many of you have, you’ll know that Ken Block’s 1,400 hp “Mustang” is an extremely fast car. But it’s finally met a worthy opponent in the form of the world’s fastest RS3. The Hoonicorn has so far...

    The LED signature game is about to take another step up. Now, not only will you be able to tell which Audi is headed your way, but if leaked photos caught by Spain’s Periodismo del Motor are anything to go off, you’ll be able to tell which A3 trim level is coming your way. According to the...

    The next S3 and RS3 will get a power bump when they arrive on US shores.  According to Car and Driver , the hot compacts are confirmed for the US. The S3 will go from 288 hp to more than 300, while the RS3 will crest 400 hp, up from 394. Both will retain their engines, a 2.0-liter turbo and a...

    More than just showing a fast car, this video does a great job of showing you the difference between a high ten-second car and a mid-nine second car. A second doesn’t sound like a lot until you see the differences on track. To demonstrate that, this built RS3 with forged internals, a TTE700...

    Depending on your perspective, this Golf R has either one too many or one too few cylinders. Either way, the 2.5-liter’s 5 cylinders is more familiar in an RS3 than a Golf R ( oh, what could have been ). Still, there’s a good reason for the RS3’s engine to find its way into this Golf R. In...

    The new A3 sedan looks the part, and the last RS3 was the business, so we’re excited to see how Audi manages this generation’s RS3. Early indications are good. This video, shot at the Nurburgring, shows a camouflaged A3 testing at the ‘ring with what sounds distinctly like an inline 5 under the...

    Audi is making a special edition of the RS3 that will be limited to just 200 examples in the USA.

    As with the last generation of A3, we’re expecting an A3 sedan designed pretty specifically for the US market. Car and Driver reports today that the sedan version is set to launch later this year as a 2021 model. The outlet cites unnamed sources, so take from that what you will, but it...

    Yesterday, we heard that the Golf R would come with some surprise that no one is expecting. Today, we’re learning that that surprise is unlikely to be a 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine, but R wanted one. The report comes from Holland’s Autovisie , which reports that the initial plan for the Mk8...

    The list of new cars on sale today with 5 cylinders is pretty short but it’s growing by one. The KTM X-Bow GTX uses Audi’s venerable 2.5-liter I5 and squeezes 600 hp out of it. That doesn’t mean that Audi just wasn’t trying when it put the engine in your TTRS/RS3, though. You won’t get dusted...

    We are all well aware that the Audi RS3 is, in essence, a Golf R turned up to 11. But it is turned up to 11 by a group of engineers who have access to every possible bit of information about the car, the chassis, the engineers who designed the Golf, and what they had for breakfast. So can a...
