Nardo Grey Audi RS3 Saloon 8,000mls! | APR Stage 1+ 540HP | Eventuri Carbon Intake | MSS Springs
Audi’s RS3 saloon is one of the most impressive and desirable compact cars on the road, and the non-OPF 8V models are arguably some of the most sought-after examples of these iconic machines. However, trying to find one in immaculate condition, low mileage, the most collectable colourway and with just one fastidious owner from new, is like finding a needle in a haystack. Luckily, we’ve sourced that particular haystack with a high-powered magnet and are proud to offer this unique example of this pin-sharp performance car.
Nardo grey is often considered the definitive colour for a high-performance Audi. The cultured battleship grey pigment complementing the aggressive lines of the bodywork to produce a truly striking machine. A prime example of this most-perfect of palettes can be seen clothing this immaculately presented RS3 8V saloon. Offered with just 8,000 miles from new and only one highly-meticulous enthusiast keeper, this pristine specimen complete with panoramic roof and Matrix LED headlights represents an unrepeatable opportunity to acquire this truly unicorn-specification example.
Being a DAZA-engined variant, it leaves the factory with a power output of 400PS from its turbocharged five-cylinder powerplant, but through painstaking professional tuning, this figure has risen to a volcanic 540PS and 694NM of torque. This impressive increase in power has been unleashed by a APR Motorsport Stage 1+ engine calibration combined with an Eventuri stage 3 carbon-fibre air intake system and turbo inlet elbow, plus a Wagner EVO3 competition front mounted intercooler kit. In fact, the only modification preventing this setup from enjoying the full Stage 2 performance is the lack of a de-cat downpipe, which is a simple upgrade for any owners who want additional torque and a more bombastic soundtrack from the RS sports exhaust.
Adding to its impressive condition and performance is over £8k of highly desirable factory optional extras including the Gloss Black styling package, Magnetic Ride Control, the Comfort & Sound pack and SuperSport seats clad in black fine Nappa leather with diamond quilting.
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 never been used, with ZERO showing 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.
