The anniversary RS Q3 has no technical differences: a 2.5-liter “turbo” develops 400 hp. With. and 480 Nm, and by means of a 7-speed preselective “robot” S tronic and an all-wheel drive system with a rear axle clutch, it accelerates the car to 100 km / h in 4.5 s.
Anniversary RS Q3s will be painted in two gray shades – matte Dew Silver and metallic Chronos Gray, which is not available for standard RS Q3s.
Another external difference is the large 21-inch wheels with a 12-spoke design. For a surcharge, the company will install carbon-ceramic brakes, but steel brakes are used regularly.
It’s also the first RS Q3 in history to feature carbon fiber buckets – before crossovers were offered exclusively with civilian seats. The exclusive seats are upholstered in natural leather and Dinamica suede-like fabric, made from 45% recycled thermoplastic.
The rest is minor decor. Bronze stitching, special graphics on the 10.1-inch display (the screen displays the serial number of the car and a carbon “substrate”), the projection of the red diamond-shaped logo when the door is open – this is a simple set with which Audi intends to lure still doubting buyers.
Anniversary version will be offered as an option package and will cost 5,990 euros. A total of 555 RS Q3s and RS Q3 Sportbacks will be produced in a 10 years edition and will be available to customers worldwide. Sales will start at the end of October.
The second generation of the Audi RS Q3 crossover debuted in 2019. The price of the model in Germany starts from 69 thousand euros (4.15 million rubles), and the coupe modification is 1.5 thousand euros more expensive.
