Service History




Manufacturer WArranty





Advancement through technology. The literal English translation of Audi’s strapline ‘vorsprung durch technik’ perfectly encapsulates the ethos behind the Ingolstadt-based brand. To honour this long-held ideal, the Bavarian manufacturer has applied the ‘Vorsprung’ moniker to denote the highest specification of their range-topping models.

This brand new 2022 Audi RS3 8Y Sportback is not only the latest and most advanced generation of Audi’s stellar RS3 models, but it also has the added desirability of being one of the much sought-after Vorsprung models, and as such, represents the very pinnacle of specification options for this game-changing hot hatch, offering practical motoring with unrivalled driver engagement, technology and performance.

Unbelievably, this stunning, brand new machine has covered only 14 delivery miles since manufacture and, upon arriving at Automotive Addiction, has been treated with our unparalleled ‘detailer’s care’ including careful removal of the transportation covers before completion of a comprehensive decontamination detail and over 40-hours of multi-stage paint correction to ensure the flawless finish that comes as standard with all vehicles offered by Automotive Addiction. 

This process has revealed the true lustre of the lavish Turbo Blue paintwork, a hue that can’t fail to draw admiration and attention wherever it goes. Offset with the contrasting gloss black details, 19in Y-spoke wheels and the highly coveted panoramic glass sunroof – an option that not only provides a lighter and more airy cabin space, but also the unobstructed sound of the raucous sports exhaust – it clothes this brutally powerful machine in a finish that’s as stylish and eye-catching as Paul Smith suit.

Added to the slick styling is over £8000 of factory options, including heads-up display, RS Adaptive suspension, 174mph top speed increase, power tailgate, electrically adjustable supersport seats, adaptive cruise control and cruise assist and a premium 15-speaker Bang & Olufsen 3D sounds system with subwoofer for the ultimate in sonic purity. 

Just like its 8V predecessor, a potent 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine lies under the bonnet of this latest 8Y model and delivers its 400PS and 500NM of torque through the legendary quattro all-wheel drive system. However, a brand new RS torque splitter, which can distribute up to 50 per cent of the available torque between the two rear wheels, has transformed the handling dynamics over the outgoing model and makes this latest RS3 the truly engaging driver’s car that enthusiasts have been craving.

At present, if you order directly from the factory, there is a waiting list of over a year until you will receive your 8Y RS3, so our stocked and road-ready model means you can jump the queue and get behind the wheel of this incredible sportback without the wait, while still benefitting from a comprehensive manufacturer’s warranty until 2025. And as it qualifies for VAT, it means business buyers can also reclaim 20% of the purchase price.

This is an excellent opportunity to own what is regarded as one of the fastest and most technologically-advanced real-world usable cars on the road, combining highly aggressive yet restrained styling, genuine supercar-levels of performance and luxurious refinement in one complete package. Please contact us without delay if you wish to discuss this vehicle or secure it with a deposit.

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