Service History




Manufacturer WArranty





Whether it’s sedate family outings, high-profile business meetings or whitening your knuckles with some hot laps around your local race circuit, Audi’s range-topping RS3 models have the breadth of abilities to deliver mind-blowing performance in every scenario. And this jaw-dropping 2022 8Y-model sportback variant represents the very pinnacle of RS3 ownership, offering practical performance motoring with real driver engagement.

With just 29 miles on the clock, this truly stunning machine is offered with one owner from new. Since its delivery to us, complete with transportation protection from the German factory, it has been treated with our ‘detailer’s care’ and is presented in perfect condition after receiving an additional 30 hours of meticulous preparation from our in-house professional detailers including multi-stage paint correction to ensure the unparalleled finish that comes as standard with all vehicles offered by Automotive Addiction. 

As a highly sought after Carbon Black Edition it comes equipped with motorsport-inspired 19in Audi Sport forged wheels, an RS Sport exhaust system and flat-bottom steering wheel. Of course, it’s also dripping in the lightweight weave courtesy of interior, exterior and engine bay carbon-fibre packs and features the latest Audi Digital Matrix LED headlights with Dynamic Light Sequencing LED Animation.

Just like its 8V predecessor, a potent 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine lies under the bonnet and delivers its 400bhp 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.

Drenched in a flawless coat of Audi’s Tango Red Metallic – a vibrant hue that has strong links to performance – and punctuated by the lashings of carbon-fibre that come as standard on the Carbon Black Edition, this is the ultimate sporty incarnation of the RS3 for the most discerning of drivers. If you see it for yourself, you’ll understand why we rate it so highly.

As well as the new torque splitter technology, this particular RS3 has been specified with over £7400 of desirable optional extras such as the Comfort and Sound Pack, which adds a high-fidelity Bang & Olufsen Premium sound system, rear view camera and advanced keyless entry, as well as RS Adaptive Suspension. The latter allowing you to tailor the ride and handling to perfectly suit your driving environment, whether that be a typical UK B-road or the glass-smooth tarmac of a race circuit, including the infamous Nurburgring, where the RS3 was developed and is the holder of the current class lap record.

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 RS 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 Tango Red Metallic 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.
