Pre-Facelift Audi RS3 8V Sportback | £10,000 of Factory Extras | MRC Stage 1 Tuned Modified: 421PS
Eight years since its launch, finding a high specification, low mileage cherished example of Audi’s barnstorming pre-facelift 8V RS3, complete with the now legendary iron-block engine, is becoming an increasingly difficult task. Fortunately, Automotive Addiction has scoured the UK and sought out one of the very best, so you don’t have to.
This stunning example, resplendent in a unblemished coat of Glacier White paint and loaded with over £10,300 of ‘must-have’ factory options, has covered less than 32,000 miles from new and is offered with just three previous enthusiast keepers. This extraordinary specification commanded a price of £52,000 from the factory, meaning this pedantically maintained pre-loved example is simply incredible value.
Highly desirable options such as the Dynamic pack, Technology pack, Driver Assistance pack, and Comfort and Sound pack with sonically superior Bang & Olufsen sound system, are joined by Advanced Key and supportive Super Sports seats in fine black Nappa leather with rock-grey diamond stitching.
On top of this smorgasbord of factory spec is over £5,000 of modifications and paint protection including an MRC Tuning Stage 1 engine calibration (complete with switchable maps up to 421PS), and an MRC Tuning DQ500 gearbox calibration. These bespoke performance improvements have been accompanied by the application of XPEL self-healing paint protection film to the front-end impact zones, which has shielded the original Glacier White paintwork underneath from stone chips and scratches, preserving the originality and immaculate condition of the vehicle.
Complete with a comprehensive Audi main dealer and specialist service history, including a recent overhaul of all major service items, plus a launch counter of just four (a figure that has been verified by our Audi dealer-level software), this flawlessly presented example, represents an unique opportunity to acquire a pristine example of these highly-prized pre-facelift models.
