The new RS3 has a larger set of six-piston brake calipers, mated to ventilated and drilled discs on each axle that are allegedly larger and more stable than the previous car, with improved cooling by 20 %. Ceramic brake discs are available on the front axle, with a brake pedal curve to match their improved performance and the option of gray, red, blue or black calipers.
In some markets Audi will offer the RS3 with semi-slick tires for better track performance, but this is not an option in the UK.
In keeping with tradition, the RS version of the Audi family sedan made a name for itself with additional air intakes, bespoke performance wheels, a larger exhaust and more aggressive styling cues.
For this generation in particular, Audi has sought to differentiate the RS3 from the regular A3 by endowing the hot model with a bespoke front design including a contrasting black grille surround (mat or gloss) that extends into the headlamps, themselves as an option. available as matrix LED elements with dark bezels. The side skirts are also finished in black, as are the mirrors, the rear diffuser and, optionally, the roof.
Meanwhile, behind the flared front wheel arches is a new outlet that directs air along the side of the car. The axle track has also been lengthened compared to the old car by 33mm at the front and 10mm at the rear for better handling and a wider stance.
