MTM’s Audi RS3 Is A Sports Car In A Hatchback Body

As if the RS3 wasn’t crazy enough.

The Audi RS3 isn’t a vehicle that’s for the faint of heart. Thehatchback offers enthusiasts supercar performance in a tiny package. Inits stock form, the RS3 comes with a 2.5-liter inline-five that makes 367 hp andcan sprint to 62 mph in 4.3 seconds. That’s better than the majority of sportscars on the road and makes it one of the fastest hot hatches in the world. MTM didn’tthink the RS3 was fast enough, so the tuning company gave the hatchback evenmore performance and a dizzying top speed.

MTM went to work on the RS3’s 2.5-liter engine and uppedpower to 435 hp and disabled the 155 mph speed limiter. With the added power,the RS3 can now get to 186 mph and from 0 to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds. To top off the RS3’s newfoundpower, MTM gave the hatchback a set of alloy wheels, a front carbon fiberspoiler, carbon fiber wing mirror caps, a rear diffuser and a carbon fiber enginecover. As you have probably guessed by now, these upgrades aren’t cheap. Pricingfor the kit in the UK starts at roughly $23,700 on top of the RS3’s base price.But getting a hot hatch with the same performance as a Porsche 911 Carrera S is something that sounds amazing.
