2015 Audi RS 3 Sportback spied for the first time

Here we the very first spy shots of the new Audi RS 3 Sportback, testing in Germany with a white and black camouflage.

We can see the new sportier front bumper with a new design and bigger air intakes, new rear bumper with signature RS exhaust tips, side skirts, rear spoiler, bigger brakes and huge alloy wheels.

The suspension is lower and the wheelbase clearly looks wider, compared to the standard model.

The outgoing RS 3 uses a turbocharged 335bhp 2.5-litre five-cylinder TFSI engine, and the new model could use an updated version of it or an uprated 4-cylinder 2.0-litre TFSI engine that in the TT quattro sport concept produced an impressive 414bhp and 331 lb-ft of torque, linked to a quick S tronic dual gearbox and quattro all-wheel drive.

The new RS 3 Sportback is expected to debut in the second half of 2014.
