This MotorSport Inspired, Audi RS3 Sportback looks hard-edged, swollen and ready to tackle your favourite driving roads. 485 horsepower from its rally-inspired 5-cylinder Audi engine may be the headlines that grab you; however, it’s the components that are hiding underneath it’s Ara Blue body that is the most impressive aspect of this RS3!

Sitting low on its KW V3 fully-adjustable coilovers, with meaty Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres on lightweight HLT 19-inch O.Z. wheels, harbouring gigantic Alcon 380mm & AP Racing 2-Piece brake discs front and rear.  H&R rear anti-roll bar and an expert 4-wheel corner weight and geometry setup at chassis tuning wizards at Track Torque Racing completes the setup of this driver focused RS3. This is ONE OF THE BEST handling RS3’s we have ever had, ready to devour your favourite B-Road whilst being able to be docile to drive during your daily commute; not many performance cars can do this better.

The supercar-slaying abilities of Audi’s RS3 have been further improved thanks to a APR ECU-Tune that has extracted 485BHP & 625NM of torque. The industry leading TVS Engineering TCU Gearbox calibration also allows the new owner to make the most of this amazing acceleration, with lightening fast, crisper shifts at every speed. If this is the kind of five-cylinder fury you might enjoy, get in touch with us before this car is gone

The Ara Blue paint is a beautiful colour, mesmerising in sunlight with its Silver & Blue Crystal-Effect which really ensures this RS3 looks as special as it is to drive. Gloss Black Styling Package (£800) and Red RS Calipers (£325) creates a menacing appearance; particularly on the road. Presented to you in utterly perfect condition after being refined by our expert detailing team prior to sale after our signature Multi-Stage Machine Paintwork Correction, as our detail photos show. 

Leaving the factory with £5,600 of Factory Optional Extras, this car was already in a desirable specification. This RS3 also enjoys an enviable driving environment too. Upon entering the cockpit, you’ll be sitting in the Super Sport Seats with Diamond Quilting (£795). The optional Comfort and Sound Pack (£995), provides the superb Bang and Olufsen Sound System, in addition to Audi’s Rear View Reversing Camera, Advanced Key and Hill-Hold Assist.

Crucially, this is an Non-OPF (Petrol Particulate Filter) DAZA Engine RS3 (Something that kills the exhaust note sound of post-2019 RS3’s) Equipped with the optional Audi RS Sport Exhaust system (£1,000) which ensures you can thoroughly enjoy the soundtrack from the wonderful 5-Cylinder TFSI engine

As you would expect this car has been pampered by its 1 Enthusiastic RS keeper since its first registration, those who invest £10,800 plus fitting into modifications, tend to treat them with the upmost respect; often as much as their own child.

Being a Facelift Audi RS3 8V.2; it is equipped with the latest development of Audi’s 5 Cylinder Powerplant. An all-new Aluminum Engine Block that is 26kg lighter than the Iron Block it replaced along with a revised Fuel & Turbocharger System are only a handful of revisions to produce more power & torque towards the redline compared to the Pre-Facelift variants. Virtual Cockpit & Apple CarPlay are the biggest revisions inside the cabin.

The lustre of its Crystal Effect Ara Blue Paintwork has been amplified after our 40-Hour Detailing Process which includes a Multi-Stage Machine Paintwork Correction to all areas; we photograph our cars under 3,000 Watt of LED Light to showcase the quality of our Vehicle Preparation which is truly Market Leading.

Condition Report

Paintwork; In Excellent Condition as you would expect from us.

  • We had the Rear Bumper repainted due to Scratches that were too deep to machine polish out on the top. The Paintwork has been completed to OEM Standards by our Audi Approved Bodyshop (at the cost of £500); excellent Orange Peel & Colour Match to OEM Finish.

  • Be rest assured this is to our Standards as Professional Paintwork Detailers. We are proud to supply some of the best presented cars in the UK & go above and beyond in our Preparation – this RS3 is no exception.


  • Apart from the Rear Bumper the rest of the car has never had any Non-Factory Paintwork; Original Car. Consistently reading 120-170 Microns of Paint Thickness on every Body Panel.

  • No Dents, Scratches or Abrasions present on ANY Panels.

  • Areas that are prone to Stone Chips are in exceptional condition such as; Front End, Rear Arches & Sideskirts. We are struggling to find fault; there are half a dozen road chips on the bonnet & a dozen road chips to the front bumper. A single stone chip to the drivers front wing is present; however this has been professionally touched in, but it is by no means excessive or noticeable & has not broken the paint (only the surface of the lacquer).

  • No stone chips to the windscreen

We are pedantic with our condition reports for complete transparency to any potential buyers. Presented as you would expect from a respected Detailing Centre.
