2023 Audi RS3 Performance Revealed With 401 HP and 186 MPH Top Speed

Yes. Six. Audi has increased the horsepower from 401 metric horsepower to 407. On good old American horses, that’s equivalent to the same 401 we’ve had since the car arrived. But the Performance Edition is more than a few extra horsepower.

First of all, the engine has been tweaked by adding more boost to the legendary five-cylinder turbo. Exhaust tweaks have also been made for better power and sound, bringing in the extra ponies. Audi has further widened the torque band by 100 rpm, with the car’s 369 lb-ft available from 2,250 to 5,700 rpm.

The RS3 Performance will accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds before meeting its top speed limiter at 286 km/h – 10 km/h higher than the US spec RS3 with the optional Dynamic plus -package.
