Photos of next-gen RS3 leak online
Full reveal expected July 19th
We’re not supposed to see the new Audi RS3 yet, though the automaker has already confirmed its fancy new rear torque splitter. But the internet has done its thing, and now the next-generation version of the hot Audi sedan has leaked. With several photos showing off the five-pot before the official reveal.
It’s not clear where the photos came from originally, but they were posted to Facebook by tuners VAG Cafe (via Carbuzz). It shows the car camouflage free with some very bright green paint and a gloss black front grille that takes up nearly the entirety of the nose of the car.
Angry headlights and massive lower air inlets flank the grille, and while that amount of aggression is the first thing you’ll spot, the rest of the sedan seems fairly sedate. Slightly wider side skirts aside, the RS3 has e-tron-style fender vents, but little else. No bulging arches here, though massive brakes and a rear spoiler make an appearance.
The pics also show off a digital dash that includes details like a g-meter, Audi’s familiar power and torque meters, and a new graph that shows the driver how much torque is being sent to each rear wheel.
The next-gen Audi RS3 is set to make its full debut on July 19th and it’s probably going to be the last of the five-cylinder monsters from Audi. It’s recently come out that Audi will launch no new internal combustion cars after 2026, meaning that there won’t be time after this one for another generation.
