2022 Audi RS3 gets a preview in Dubai
Audi Middle East, along with its partner in Dubai and the Norther Emirates, Al Nabooda Automobiles, showcased their latest premium sports car, the all-new Audi RS3 exclusively in Dubai, two months ahead of its official market introduction in the region. The RS3 sedan version was displayed at the popular cars and coffee stop, Flat 12 Café.
The Audi RS3 gets the engine carried over from the last generation, the 2.5-cylinder turbocharged 5-cylinder engine, but with some upgrades and more torque. The new setup produces 385 hp (400 PS) and 500 Nm of torque, 20 Nm more than the previous RS3 model. It does 0 to 100 kph in 3.8 seconds and 250 kph electronically limited top speed. If you take the performance package, it removes the limiter and can hit 290 kph.
Visually, the RS3 demonstrates its sporty DNA with a widened body, RS sports exhaust system, and cockpit displays comparable to those found in race cars.
The RS3’s appearance in Dubai strategically coincided with the dominating Audi Sport win at the Hankook 24h Dubai race, which took place at the Dubai Autodrome track over the weekend. Fans and enthusiasts alike were treated to a week-long Audi Sport showcase with the RS3 as the centre-piece for all to enjoy.
“Progress has taken on a new shape with the Audi RS3 here in Dubai. The RS3 delivers exceptional performance in its segment, equipped with a five-cylinder engine and RS-specific interior and exterior design details, offering customers an exciting entry point into the Audi Sport lineup.
This is a car for the enthusiasts and we are lucky to have showcased it in a region where car culture is at an all-time high, “said Elmir Arnautovic, Marketing Director at Audi Middle East.
The all-new RS 3 is available in sedan and sportback variants and in different trim levels, allowing customers to choose a version that reflects individual styling, driving experience and equipment level. Customers can now pre-order the vehicle in Dubai.
