33,600 MILES





Service History









There’s few more eye-catching colourways for a sports car than red and black, and this gorgeous Catalunya red Audi RS3, which has been further enhanced by over 40 hours of meticulous multi-stage machine paintwork correction, will certainly get you noticed. And if it’s not the flawless crimson pigment that does the trick, it’ll be the guttural aural assault emanating from the RS Sports exhaust.

Equipped with a non-OPF DAZA engine, this 8V saloon model offers an un-restricted flow of the exhaust gases, making it both louder and more tuneable than later models. And this inherent trait has been taken full advantage of by the previous owner who has had the performance enhanced with a suite of professionally installed tuning modifications.

MRC Tuning stage 2 remaps of both the ECU and gearbox TCU combine with an Infinit Performance downpipe and Forge intake kit to endow this example with a brutal 500PS output. This transforms the way the car accelerates and sets up a perfect base for even more gains in the future with the fitment of an aftermarket intercooler. To ensure all aftermarket modifications are running with a clean bill of health, this RS3 has undergone a recent major service and thorough check at VAG tuning specialists VRS Northampton, passing with flying colours.

But the tuning upgrades aren’t the only part of what makes this example so special, as it also benefits from an exceptional service history, just two previous enthusiast keepers and a low 33,600 miles on the clock from new – a figure which has been professionally verified via inspection of both the ECU and TCU mileage counters with audi dealer diagnostics to ensure they match to give an accurate and honest mileage representation that you can rely on.

Add in desirable factory extras such as Super Sports seats, Audi Virtual Cockpit and the Comfort & Sound pack with exceptional Bang & Olufsen sound system, and this is a super saloon that takes some beating. Whether it’s the daily commute, a cross country jaunt or tearing up your favourite B-roads, this RS3 can do it all.

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