View Full Version : RS3 ??

May 8th, 2003, 20:47
In a report of a german carmagazin they have mentioned an RS3. The article was normaly about the new VW Passat. There they said, that they'll build an R32 Passat with a motor from the RS3. This one would have more than 300 hp.
Anyone knowing more about that?

I think the RS3 will be built, but who knows the specs at this time?

There will be a Phaeton R60 as well. :MTM:

wow, how much power will it have???? The "normal" W12 with 6 litres displacement has got 420hp...
Very chancy from VW to build this when seeing the sales from the phaeton.

Do you know anything about the performance values of the beast?

0-100km/u : less than 5 sec.

According the Dutch car magazine: Auto Visie

Because the have been breaking all sales records with the regular Phaeton:confused: :confused: I am sure it will be a awsome car but will it make them any money.......I doubt it. Sadly, as good a car as the Phaeton is in the end I think it will end up a financial disaster.

Some more RS3 info according to Autovisie:
- available mid 2006

- 350 hp, 450 Nm torque
- 1560 kg (4,46 HP/Kilo)
- DSG transmission
- Haldex electronic power distribution between all wheels
- Top speed 250 km/h (expected unlimited 275 km/h)
- 235/40 18 inch tires
- no limit on production numbers (for exclusivity)

Also available as station wagon (Sportback, Avant): 10 cm longer.

Other new models info:
- S3 available in 2005, with 280 3.2 V6 FSI, without turbo.
- Next generation Allroad, available in beginning 2006, combination of Pikes Peak and current Allroad. Will be built in the Touareg factory, will be 30 cm longer then Toureg.

Not all of this information is confirmed by Audi, I believe, but it looks promising.
