Audi RS Q3 concept

Audi RS Q3 Concept (2012)

The RS concept may soon expand into high-riding-wagon territory. This is Audi’s idea of an RS Q3, previewed at the Beijing auto show this April. It is powered by a 360-hp variation of Audi’s 2.5-liter straight-five turbo; the front flaps, the three-dimensional pattern of the grille, and the glossy black details point to elements that will be seen on other future RS models. We drove a detuned version of this car in regular Q3 disguise last summer and can attest to its high potential. Look for a series-production model down the road.
