DESCRIPTION

JUST COME INTO STOCK – Stage 3 Audi RS3 is new into stock at Automotive Addiction and has started its journey through our innovative industry leading (up-to-60-hour) labour-intensive preparation process that is designed to satisfy even the most pedantic of enthusiasts. Please read our ‘60-hour Pre-Sale Preparation Process’ on our website or contact us for more information.

This Motorsport Inspired, DDG Stage 3, 618 Horsepower Audi RS3 Saloon looks hard-edged, swollen and ready to tackle your favourite driving roads. Its rally-inspired boosted 5-cylinder Audi engine stands ready to thrill its new owner with supercar-slaying performance in a saloon-car body. As electrification takes over the car industry; enjoy this theatrical and emotional engine whilst you can.

Over £26,500 of Professional tuning and the best aftermarket components available for the RS3, have been carefully selected with an ‘open cheque-book’ policy by its first owner. Its ballistic performance is an experience to savour, that TTE-700 Turbo spools up so fast that your instincts can barely keep-up with how ferociously this car accelerates, DDG’s ECU-Tune has extracted the kind of five-cylinder fury that excites you every-time you squeeze your right foot. Remarkably, its 2.5L Engine, 7-Speed S-tronic Gearbox or Quattro 4WD system is not overwhelmed, despite the amount of power being transferred onto the tarmac, this highlights the high level of engineering from Audi’s Ingolstadt factory.

Visually, this RS3 looks special. Dripping in Carbon-Fibre with an Automotive-Passion Carbon Aerodynamic Pack, which extends to the engine-bay with a Carbon APR Intake and a Genuine Audi Carbon Engine Bay Pack.

Sitting low on its KW HAS fully-adjustable suspension, on lightweight 19in O.Z. Racing Ultraleggera HLT wheels. In the cabin, that custom Carbon Alcantara Steering Wheel with Nardo Grey Marker is the centre piece, along with an Carbon-Fibre Centre Console & Genuine Audi Dashboard Inlays. The combined effect is impressive, creating a car which exudes menace and personality effortlessly.

Leaving the factory in an iconic specification of Nardo Grey with Black Contrasts, with £7,500 of must-have factory optional extras such as the £2,250 Audi-Sport Pack which features an throaty RS Sports exhaust system, individual tyre pressure monitoring system and RS Magnetic Ride Control, which is a must-have whilst navigating down an bumpy UK B-Road. Elsewhere wireless phone charging, reverse camera, Advanced Key, supportive Supersport seats, extended leather and a high fidelity Bang & Olufsen 14-speaker sound system with subwoofer.

But while it may pack a serious punch, it’s certainly not been abused, our deep-dive diagnostic, as part of our pre-purchase inspection has revealed that launch control has only ever been used 14-times as shown on the transmissions launch counter. The Audi approved diagnostic tool has also confirmed that the mileage showing on the odometer is authentic confirming that this RS3’s mileage is genuine, for complete piece of mind for any prospective buyers.

Without a doubt, this is one of the fastest RS3s available on the market right now, and it wouldn’t be in our showroom if it wasn’t in a condition to match. This is a rare opportunity to pick up an over 600bhp, 21,950mile RS3 Saloon, with a eye-watering specification at a price that doesn’t reflect the £26,600 of modifications (plus fitting) or immediate availability of this car. As you would expect this car has been pampered since its first registration, those who invest so much into modifications, tend to treat them with the upmost respect.

XPEL Paint-Protection-Film (PPF) has been installed since Brand-New to all impact areas, this protection has resulted in NOT-ONE-STONE-CHIP on the entire paintwork. The PPF that has been installed is ‘Self-Healing’ meaning if you develop a scratch on the film, simply apply heat and it will self-heal.

Our painstaking inspection process has revealed no instances of non-factory paintwork, so you can buy in confidence that this most searing of saloons’s has led a life free of damage and is in simply impeccable condition both inside and out.

Please view the comprehensive video for more information on this standout example and be sure to contact us without delay if you wish to discuss this vehicle or secure it with a deposit.
