This 1 Owner from new Nardo Grey RS3 Saloon with the Gloss Black Styling Package is an iconic specification. The distinctive look is complimented by Gloss Black 19inch Audi-Sport Wheels and Genuine Black Badges. Only the optional Red Audi RS brake calipers break up the two-tone look of this machine. Leaving the factory with almost £7,500 of Factory Optional Extras as listed below.

Audi-Sport Package (£1700) is a must have optional extra; the RS Sports Exhaust providing the audible orchestra that can only be associated with the rally-inspired 5-cylinder Audi engine. Magnetic Ride Control allows the driver to adjust the firmness of the suspension by a touch of a button inside the cabin (3x settings) from a compliant and comfortable ride for the daily commute to a firm and rigid ride to tackle your favourite B-road. Individual Tyre Pressure & Temperature Monitoring System gives the driver a crucial visual display of how each tyre is performing whilst on the road for complete confidence whilst behind the wheel of your pride and joy.

Those fine Super Sport Nappa Leather seats are trimmed with Crescendo red stitching, complimented perfectly with the rare and sought after RS Design Package. Which ensures the cabin feels ‘RS’ special with Alcantara KneePads, Leather Door Armrests, Red Lined SeatBelts, Red Heater Vents & Exclusive RS3 Floor Matts all finished with contrast Crescendo red stitching. 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 more desirable Non-OPF model (Petrol Particulate Filter) DAZA Engine RS3 (Something that kills the exhaust note sound of post-2019 RS3’s) meaning its 5-Cylinder Soundtrack is unmuffled through its optional Audi RS Sport Exhaust system!

Its condition is unrivalled; displaying Factory Original Finish to its Paintwork. This RS3 has never had any paintwork from new; this is guaranteed by us. With only 1 owner from new and full Audi Specialist Service History.

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 Iconic Nardo Grey 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.
