    Brenda Priddy says that it has been a while since her spy group has seen any evidence of Audi working on the RS3, but these shots indicate that quattro GmbH engineers are back at work on this very hot hatch!

    This early mule of Audi’s future pocket-rocket was photographed testing at the Nürburgring. While this test car is wearing an S3 body, Priddy says that the air intakes on either side of the grille appear to be modified and slightly larger. The brake rotors also appear to be larger and cross-drilled.

    Power should come from Audi's 2.5L five-cylinder turbocharged engine. Good for 340 hp and 331 lb.-ft. of torque in the TT-RS, Priddy expects the 2.5L to be rated nearly the same in the RS3. Considering that the proposed RS3 would probably weigh about as much as the TT-RS, a 0-60 time of around 4.6 seconds might be possible.
