아우디가 19일(현지시각), 미래 럭셔리 세그먼트에 대한 비전을 보여주는 새로운 컨셉트 차량 제품군의 세번째 모델인 아우디 어반스피어 콘셉트 (Audi unbansphere concept)에 대한 계획을 공개했다.

 

처음에 디자이너와 엔지니어들은 교통량이 많은 대도시의 교통 상황에 적합하도록 아우디 어반스피어를 설계했다. 이 콘셉트카는 역대 아우디 차량 중 가장 넓은 실내공간을 제공한다. 또한 오감을 만족시키는 기술 및 디지털 서비스들을 지능적으로 조합하여 새로운 차원의 경험을 선사한다.

 

아우디 AG CEO이자 중국 시장을 책임지고 있는 마커스 듀스만(Markus Duesmann)은 "중국 고객의 요구를 충족시키기 위해 베이징에 있는 아우디 디자인 스튜디오와 잉골슈타트가 긴밀하게 협력하여 아우디 어반스피어 콘셉트를 공동 개발했다“고 말했다. 이 콘셉트 카의 개발 과정에는 처음으로 중국의 잠재 고객들이 “공동 창작” 프로세스에 참여해 희망사항과 의견을 공유했다.

 

공동 창작의 결과는 아우디 어반스피어 콘셉트의 실내에서 확연히 드러난다. 넉넉한 실내 공간의 차량은 바퀴 달린 라운지와 모바일 오피스의 역할을 수행하며, 교통 정체 중에 제3의 생활 공간이 되어준다. 이를 위해 아우디 어반스피어에는 완벽한 사생활 보호와 광범위한 첨단 기능이 결합되었다. 자율 주행 기술 덕분에 스티어링 휠, 페달 또는 디스플레이가 사라진 실내는 포괄적인 디지털 에코시스템을 위한 개방된 모바일 인터랙티브 공간으로 변신했다.

 

아우디 스피어 – 3가지 퍼스트클래스 경험

 

아우디 스카이스피어, 아우디 그랜드스피어, 아우디 어반스피어는 아우디가 지향하는 미래의 프리미엄 모빌리티에 대한 비전을 보여주는 세 가지 콘셉트카다. 아우디는 출발지점에서 목적지까지 단순히 이동을 위해 자동차 안에서 시간을 보낸다는 기존 이동 수단의 개념을 뛰어넘는 차량 경험을 만들어 가고 있다.

 

그 첫번째로 2021년 8월, 아우디는 가변 휠베이스를 적용해 자율 주행 그랜드 투어러에서 자율 주행 스포츠카로 변신하는 전기 구동 로드스터 아우디 스카이스피어 콘셉트(Audi skysphere concept)를 선보였다. 몇 주 후, 아우디는 독일에서 열린 IAA 2021에서 스피어 시리즈의 두 번째 모델인 아우디 그랜드스피어 콘셉트(Audi grandsphere concept)를 공개했다. 이 4인승 대형 세단은 진보적인 럭셔리의 미래를 정의한다는 아우디 브랜드의 포부를 보여준다.

 

이 두 콘셉트카와 아우디 어반스피어의 공통점은 전체 콘셉트가 레벨 4 자율주행 기술을 기반으로 했다는 점이다. 이는 아우디가 폭스바겐 그룹의 소프트웨어 싱크탱크인 카리아드(CARIAD)와 함께 2020년대 후반 도입을 목표로 개발에 매진하고 있는 기술 중 하나이다.

 

빠른 충전, 긴 주행 범위

 

구동 시스템의 핵심은 800볼트 충전 기술이다. 급속 충전소에서 최단 시간에 최대 270kW까지 배터리를 충전할 수 있으며, 단 10분이면 배터리를 300km 이상 주행할 수 있는 수준까지 충전할 수 있다. 또한 120kWh 이상을 수용하는 배터리는 25분 이내에 5%에서 80%까지 충전될 수 있다. 이는 WLTP 기준 최대 750km 범위를 주행할 수 있음을 의미하며, 에너지 집약적인 도심 주행이나 단거리 여행에 사용하는 경우에도 충전을 위해 예기치 않게 충전소를 찾을 필요가 없다.​

Even more power, even more fun: the true meaning of “performance” at the Audi Sport GmbH. The new R8 V10 performance RWD is available as a Coupé or Spyder with 30 PS extra, a sporty complement to the R8 V10 performance quattro. This rear-wheel drive sports car, with its mid-mounted engine boasting 419 kW (570 PS)23 and new technological highlights such as bucket seats, dynamic steering, CFK stabilizers and ceramic disc brakes, is the embodiment of fun driving.

The Audi R8 V10 performance RWD (Rear Wheel Drive) is the sporty new cutting edge of serial rear-wheel drive sports cars from Audi. “The Audi R8 V10 RWD really struck a chord with customers right from the start with its rear-wheel drive derived from the R8 LMS racecar and its unfiltered dynamics. Now it has 30 PS and 10 newton meters more, taking the driving experience to a whole new level,” says Sebastian Grams, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH. The base versions of both models, the R8 V10 quattro67 and the R8 V10 RWD89 as a Coupé and Spyder, will be replaced by the new performance models. This puts the R8 model range more firmly in the top position.

Top speed of 329 km/h

This mid-mounted engine sports car leaves others in the dust, accelerating from zero to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds (3.8 seconds for the Spyder) with a top speed of 329 km/h (327 km/h for the Spyder). The crown jewel of the new R8 is the renowned naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 FSI motor with unparalleled sound, lightning-fast reaction and incredible liveliness. In the R8 V10 performance RWD, the aggregate has an output of 419 kW (570 PS)23 and brings up to 550 newton meters of torque, which it distributes to its rear wheels with its seven-gear S tronic. That’s 10 newton meters more torque than the Audi R8 V10 RWD. A mechanical limited slip differential distributes the torque ideally based on the driving situation, ensuring prime traction even when the roads are wet. As with all R8s, the body is built of aluminum using the Audi Space Frame (ASF) design, with large parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP). The Coupé version of the R8 V10 performance RWD thus weighs a mere 1590 kilograms, with the Spyder version weighing in at 1695 kilograms.

Controlled drifts are possible

The suspension and driving dynamics are specifically balanced for the rear-wheel drive. When Sport Mode is activated in the Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC), the suspension setup and control systems will allow controlled drifts. The electromechanical power steering provides close contact with the road. Dynamic steering, available for the first time for the rear-wheel drive R8, provides even more precise reaction and feedback. This makes driving more dynamic through more direct steering, for example on curvy country roads or when turning. It also increases comfort by making steering easier, such as when parking or maneuvering. The RWD sport suspension is adapted specifically for rear-wheel drive, has double wishbones and a passive differential lock. The axle distribution is 40:60. Extra-light 19 and 20-inch aluminum cast wheels ensure precise handling and lane control in quick turns. Cup wheels in 245/30 R20 up front and 305/30 R20 at the back, are available optionally and provide extra grip and dynamics. An 18-inch high-performance steel braking system with a wave design and an optional 19-inch high-performance ceramic braking system provide the necessary deceleration.

Recognizable design features of the Audi R8 V10 performance quattro

The overly sporty design is inspired by its GT4 siblings. Elements of this include the broad, flat Singleframe radiator grill in matte black with an R8 emblem flanked by large air intakes, the front splitter and rear air outlet grid as well as the oval tailpipes. The slit under the front hood is reminiscent of the legendary Audi Sport quattro. The new R8 is available in ten color options. One of them is Ascari Blue Metallic, a color that was previously only available for the R8 V10 performance quattro45. The “R8 performance” design package boasts an interior with black Alcantara leather, contrast stitching in Mercato Blue and decorative carbon inlays.

Racecar feelings inside

The tight lines of the design set the tone inside the car as well. Its most eye-catching element is the “Monoposto” – the large, heavily contoured arch that spans the area in front of the driver’s seat and is strongly reminiscent of a racecar cockpit. The “Monoposto” encloses the Audi virtual cockpit with a 12.3-inch screen, which is integrated into a freestanding casing. The R8 leather steering wheel with Multifunction plus offers two or, in the performance version, four control satellites, each for using Audi drive select, to start the engine, to activate Performance Mode and the engine sound as well as to control the Audi virtual cockpit. Drivers and passengers can enjoy the ride in their newly available R8 bucket or sports seats, upholstered in leather and Alcantara. A badge with the RWD emblem shimmers in front of the passenger seat.

Production largely by hand

The R8 V10 performance RWD is built – largely by hand – in the “Böllinger Höfe” plant at the Audi location in Neckarsulm, Germany. This is also the production site of the LMS GT4 racecar, which is derived from the series model and uses roughly 60 percent carryover parts. Approximately 40,000 square meters of production space are used, with up to 1,000 highly qualified employees working in sports car assembly. The rear-wheel drive Audi R8 V10 performance RWD23 can be ordered from October 21.

In Germany, the base price for the Coupé is €149,000. The Spyder starts at €162,000.

드리프트를 가장 잘 하는 사람은 아니지만 화려한 영상으로 드리프트의 인기를 높이는데 중요한 역할을 한물이 바로 캔블락(Ken Block)입니다. 그는 시리즈마다 다양한 드리프트 카를 선보이며 좋은 반응을 얻었죠.

 

이번 파트너는 전기차 시대를 맞아 아우디 e-트론입니다. 아우디 스포츠 S1 콰트로(Audi Sport quattro S1)에 대한 오마쥬이기도 하고요. 거의 그대로 복사해서 전기 파워트레인을 넣어 공개한 느낌까지 듭니다. 

 

힐 클라임을 위해 개발되었던 S1이기에 리어뿐만 아니라 프런트에도 초대형 윙이 달려있습니다. 이를 후니트론에도 그대로 적용해 영광을 새겼습니다.

포뮬러 E에서 발을 빼고 WEC와 함께 다카르 랠리에 도전하겠다고 밝힌 아우디가 첫 번째 프로토타입을 공개했습니다. '아우디 RS Q e-Tron'이라 이름붙인 랠리카로 2022년 1월에 중동 사막에서 열리는 다카르 랠리에 참가합니다.

 

 랠리이고 하루에 800km에 이르는 긴 거리를 달려야 하기 때문에 충전이 문제일텐데요. 이를 위해 배터리 충전용 엔진을 장착하고 있습니다. 구체적인 스펙은 공개되지 않았지만 DTM에 쓰는 2.0 TFSI라고 하네요. 즉, 가솔린 직분사 터보 엔진을 배터리 충전용으로 사용하는 익스텐디드 EV이에요. 쉐보레 초기 볼트(Volt)가 나왔을 때 이걸 전기차로 보느냐 하이브리드로 보느냐의 논란이 있었던 방식입니다. 최근에는 배터리 충전용으로만 엔진을 돌리기에 전기차 범주에 놓자는 의견이 많네요.

 

이번 프로토타입은 길이 4,500mm, 너비 2,300mm, 높이 1,950mm로 통상의 라이벌과 크게 다르지 않아요. 하지만 배터리 때문에 무게는 조금 더 나갈 것으로 보입니다. 대신 묵직한 토크를 덤으로 얻게 되죠.

 

아직 규정이 확정되지 않아 파워트레인의 스펙은 변경 가능성이 있습니다.  테스트 중인 걸 기준으로 보면 500kW의 시스템 출력을 낼 수 있고 제로백 4초 정도를 예상하고 있네요.

 

하지만 가혹한 랠리 환경을 볼 때 이런 성능보다는 내구성이 더 중요할 것으로 보이는데, 1차로 자갈밭 테스트는 합격점을 받았다고 합니다. 곧 2차 사막 주행 테스트를 거치고 최종 단계의 프로토타입 스펙이 공개될 전망입니다. 그때까지는 변수가 좀 있으니 멋진 사진보면서 더 지켜봐야할 거 같습니다.

아우디의 차세대 디자인을 엿볼 수 있는 스피어 시리즈의 두 번째 작품이 2021 IAA 모터쇼를 통해 공개되었습니다. 가장 먼저 선보인 모델이 럭셔리 오픈 모델을 지향한 스카이스피어였다면, 이번 모델은 초호화 세단을 연상케합니다.

 

길이가 자그마치 5.35미터에 달하는 큰 덩치의 슈퍼 세단입니다. 디자인은 아우디표의 커다란 그릴과 날렵한 헤드램프, 곡선과 직선이 어우러진 보디 라인으로 요약할 수 있습니다. 딱 봐도 아우디 차라는 걸 알 수 있지요.

 

기술적으로는 레벨 4 수준의 자율주행이 돋보이고 그 때문에 실내 디자인도 기존 세단과 다른 형태랍니다. 즉, 보통 때는 스티어링과 페달이 있지만 레벨 4로 운행할 때는 이들을 꼭꼭 숨겨 완벽한 거실로 변신합니다. 3.19미터에 달하는 긴 휠베이스 덕분에 공간도 아주 넓습니다. 덕분에 승객들은 운행 중에 아주 편안하게 잠을 청하거나 영화를 보기도 하고, 밀린 업무를 볼 수도 있지요.

아우디가 콤팩트한 차체에 고성능을 자랑하는 신형 RS3 세단형을 공개했습니다. 기본형보다 그릴의 영역이 크게 확장되어 공격적이며, 범퍼 하단부의 공기흡입구도 짱장하네요.

 

헤드램프는 풀 LED 매트릭스 타입이고, 앞뒤 펜더가 확장되어 전보다 다부집니다. 후면부에는 넓게 확장된 디퓨저가 눈에 들어오며, 트렁크 립 스포일러로 포인트를 주었네요. 

 

이번 모델에서 가장 행복한 건 파워트레인입니다. 마니아라면 하이브리드화 되지 않을까 노심조사했을텐데요. 다행히 5기통 2.5리터 터보 차저 엔진을 달고 나왔네요. 최고출력은 400마력(PS)으로 라이벌 AMG A45 S보다 조금 낮지만 배기량이 주는 넉넉한 특성을 고려하면 실제 달리기에서는 무시할 수 없는 수준일 듯하네요. 공식 발표된 제로백은 3.8초입니다.

From 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, up to 290 km/h top speed, RS Torque Splitter, semi slicks, and specific RS driving modes – the new Audi RS 32 offers driving dynamics of the highest caliber and the best numbers in its segment. Equipped with a 294 kW (400 PS) five-cylinder, the high-performance engine delivers rapid acceleration with a highly intoxicating sound. The power unit now delivers 500 Nm of torque and responds even faster. Visually, the RS 32 demonstrates its sporty DNA with a widened body, RS sports exhaust system, and cockpit displays like those found in race cars.

 

“With the third generation of the Audi RS 3 Sportback3 and the second generation of the Audi RS 3 Sedan4, we now offer premium sports cars that are suitable for everyday use and equally thrilling to drive on public roads and racetracks,” says Sebastian Grams, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH. “They represent the entry point into our RS world and, thanks to the torque splitter, the ultimate in outstanding performance in the compact segment.”

Unmatched acceleration and top speed: the 2.5 TFSI

With its five-cylinder, high-performance engine, the Audi RS 32 is one-of-a-kind in the segment. The 2.5 TFSI has won the “International Engine of the Year” award nine times in a row. In the latest generation of the compact sports car, the engine is now more powerful than ever before. The new RS 3 models2 sprint from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds. Their top speed is limited to 250 km/h, but 280 km/h is also available as an optional upgrade. With the RS Dynamic package and ceramic brakes, they can even reach a top speed of 290 km/h. This makes the Audi RS 32 the best in its class in terms of acceleration and top speed. This is primarily due to the 500 Nm increase in torque, which is available between 2,250 and 5,600 rpm. That is equal to 20 Nm more than its predecessor. As a result, the Audi RS 32 accelerates even faster from low rev ranges.

The engine's maximum power of 294 kW (400 PS) is available earlier than before at 5,600 rpm and extends over a broad plateau to 7,000 rpm. A new engine control unit also increases the speed at which all of the drive components communicate with each other.

A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is what puts the power of the five-cylinder engine to the pavement – with short shifting times and a sportier gear ratio spread. The engine’s unique 1‑2‑4‑5-3 ignition sequence and the incomparable sound that comes with it make the driving experience that much more exhilarating. For the first time, the exhaust system features a fully variable flap control system that supports intermediate positions, thus broadening the sound characteristics even further. It can be adjusted via the driving dynamics system Audi drive select. In the Dynamic and RS Performance modes, for example, the flaps open much earlier – the emotional elements of the sound are even more pronounced. In addition, the unmistakable sound of the five-cylinder engine is further enhanced by the optional RS sports exhaust system.

Maximum agility: RS Torque Splitter and specific RS 3 modes

The new Audi RS 32 is the first Audi model that comes standard-equipped with a torque splitter. It replaces the rear axle differential and the previous multiple disc clutch package on the rear axle. Instead, an electronically controlled multiple disc clutch is used on each of the drive shafts. This ensures that the right amount of torque is optimally distributed along the rear axle. During more dynamic driving, the torque splitter increases the drive torque to the outer rear wheel with the higher wheel load, which significantly reduces the tendency to understeer. In left-hand curves, it transmits the drive torque to the right rear wheel, in right-hand curves to the left rear wheel, and when driving straight ahead to both wheels.

The new technology also makes controlled drifts on closed-off tracks possible – in this case, the torque splitter directs all of the power to only one of the rear wheels, with up to 1,750 newton meters per wheel possible. Audi even developed a driving mode specifically for the RS 32 for this purpose – “RS Torque Rear” – as a drift mode with its own characteristic curve for the torque splitter. The RS Performance mode, created specifically for the racetrack, is another never-before-seen innovation. It uses a specific engine and transmission configuration and is precisely tailored to the semi-slick tires that are, for the very first time, available for the RS 32 as a factory option. In this case, the torque splitter delivers a particularly dynamic, sporty ride along the longitudinal axis with as little understeer and oversteer as possible. These modes can be selected via the Audi drive select driving dynamics system, which also offers the following profiles: comfort, auto, dynamic, RS Individual, and efficiency.

More dynamic ride with greater precision: RS sports suspension and larger wheel camber

The standard RS sports suspension features newly developed shock absorbers and a valve system both specific to the RS 32. The valves ensure that the shock absorbers exhibit a particularly sensitive response as part of the rebound and compression characteristics. This allows the suspension to respond to the respective driving situation even faster and more effectively. The RS sport suspension plus with adaptive damper control is available as an option. It continuously and individually adjusts each shock absorber to the road conditions, the driving situation, and the mode selected in Audi drive select. The three characteristic curves comfortable, balanced, and sporty provide a clearly perceptible spread of the shock absorber characteristics.

The larger wheel camber, i.e. the wheels are angled more toward the road, results in a more precise steering response and increased cornering force. Compared to the Audi A3, the wheels on the front axle of the new RS 32 have just under one degree of additional negative camber. To achieve this, the pivot bearings were modified and the lower wishbones were equipped with stiffer bearings, subframes, and stabilizers. A rear axle features a four-link design with separate spring/damper arrangement, subframe, and tubular stabilizer bar. The wheel carriers, which are stiffer than those of the Audi A3 and S35, absorb the increased lateral forces generated by the torque splitter. The negative wheel camber here is almost half a degree more compared to the A3. The RS‑specific progressive steering varies the gear ratio depending on the steering angle – as the steering angle increases, the gear ratio becomes smaller and steering more direct. It also assists based on speed and can be varied via Audi drive select. The setup of the springs and shock absorbers is markedly stiff, and the body is ten millimeters lower than on the S35 and 25 millimeters lower than on the A3.

Another new addition to the RS 32 is the modular vehicle dynamics controller (mVDC). This central system captures data from all the components relevant to lateral dynamics, thus ensuring that they interact more precisely and more quickly. The mVDC synchronizes the torque splitter, adaptive dampers, and wheel-selective torque control for precise steering and handling. All in all, it increases the vehicle’s agility, especially on winding roads.

Powerful deceleration: six-piston steel and ceramic brake system

The RS 32 comes standard-equipped with larger and newly developed six-piston steel brakes to keep the power of the five-cylinder engine in check. A ceramic brake system measuring 380 by 38 mm is optionally available on the front axle with a pedal characteristic curve specially adapted to the brake booster. The high-performance brake system weighs another ten kilograms less than the steel brake. Its internally ventilated and drilled discs measure 375 by 36 mm at the front and 310 by 22 mm at the rear. This makes them larger and more stable than in the previous model. Air control elements improve the brakes’ cooling time by 20 percent. This more quickly reduces peak temperatures during hard braking while pedal feel remains the same. In addition, it also reduces brake pad wear, which are 15 percent larger and copper-free. Those who opt for the ceramic brakes can choose between gray, red, or blue brake calipers. Those who prefer the steel version can order red calipers instead of the black ones.

Expressive and unmistakable: exterior and lighting

The design of the new Audi RS 32 is even more dynamic and powerful than that of its predecessor. In the front, the wide RS bumper, the redesigned Singleframe with its distinctive honeycomb grille, and the large air intakes give the compact sports car an expressive appearance. The RS 32 comes standard-equipped with flat, wedge-shaped LED headlights and LED taillights including dynamic turn signal lights. Matrix LED headlights are available as an option, with darkened bezels that feature digital daytime running lights around their outer downturned angles. With its pixel field of 3 x 5 LED segments, it provides an unmistakable look – a checkered flag appears in the left headlight as a dynamic leaving and coming home scene, and the RS 32 lettering appears on the driver’s side. When driving, the checkered flag lights up on both sides.

There is also a new design element behind the front wheel arches: an eye-catching additional air outlet. The rocker panels with black trim have also been redesigned and, in combination with the flared wheel arches, contribute to the expressive look of the new RS 32. The front axle track has been widened by 33 millimeters compared to the previous model. On the Sportback, the rear axle track has increased by ten millimeters. The RS 32 is standard-equipped with 19-inch cast wheels in a 10-Y spoke design. True racing design is embodied by the optionally available 5‑Y spokes with RS branding. Audi will also mount Pirelli P Zero “Trofeo R” performance semi-slick tires for the first time, if desired. The motorsports-inspired finishing touches include the redesigned RS-specific rear bumper with integrated diffuser and the RS exhaust system with two large oval tailpipes.

The new Audi RS 32 models can be ordered in two exclusive RS colors: Kyalami green and Kemora gray. The roof of the Sedan can also be ordered in the contrasting color Brilliant black for the first time. Individual exterior features, such as the honeycomb grille in the Singleframe, come standard in black – either in a matte or high-gloss finish. The Alu-Optic Trim package is available as an option and accentuates the front bumper, diffuser insert, and window trim. For an even sportier look, the rocker panel inlays are also available in carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer. The same applies to the mirror caps, the tailgate spoiler on the Sedan and the roof edge spoiler on the Sportback.

Genuine racing feeling: the interior

In the interior, too, many elements specific to the RS accentuate its sportiness. The displays appear in the 12.3-inch Audi virtual cockpit plus, which comes standard. It displays the rpms in the form of a bar graph and shows power and torque as percentages. The rpm display in the “RS Runway” design is new. Here, the values are displayed in the opposite direction in a manner that visually resembles an airplane runway – the highest speed in the foreground and the lowest speed in the background. In addition, the Audi virtual cockpit plus includes displays for g‑forces, lap times and acceleration from 0‑100 km/h, 0-200 km/h, quarter mile, and eighth of a mile.

The RS-specific blinking shift indicator in manual transmission mode changes the rpm display from green to yellow to red, blinking in a manner identical to that used in motorsports, to indicate the ideal time to change gears. The 10.1-inch touch display includes what is referred to as the “RS Monitor,” which displays the coolant, engine, and transmission oil temperatures as well as tire pressures. Also available for the first time for the Audi RS 32 is a head-up display that projects relevant information onto the windshield in the driver's direct line of sight in addition to the shift light indicator.

The genuine racing feeling is further enhanced by the carbon inlay in the instrument panel and RS sport seats with RS embossing and anthracite contrast stitching. The seat upholstery is optionally available in fine Nappa leather with RS honeycomb stitching and glossy black, red, or, for the first time, green contrast stitching. RS Design packages in red and green are available to match. They include special floor mats with contrast stitching and RS embroidery, as well as seatbelts with colored edges. The Design package plus includes seat corners in red or green and a colored accents on the air vents.

Everything under control: steering wheel with 12 o’clock stripe and RS Mode button

The RS 32 is standard-equipped with a three‑spoke RS Sport multifunctional leather steering wheel with a flattened bottom. It features built-in, high-quality die-cast zinc shift paddles. Those who opt for the Design package get, in addition to the RS badge, a 12 o’clock stripe for faster indication of the steering wheel position during dynamic driving. Alternatively, a round RS steering wheel is available with hands-on detection, i.e. capacitive grip recognition, for assisted steering functions. Both have the new RS Mode button on the right-hand steering wheel spoke in common. This button can be used to select the Audi drive select modes RS Performance, RS Individual, or the last mode used. In both RS modes, the display of the instruments and the head‑up display has an even sportier look with a blinking shift indicator.

Availability: market launch and pricing

The Audi RS 3 Sportback3 and RS 3 Sedan4 will be available to order in Europe starting in mid‑July 2021. The new RS 3 models2 will be launched in the fall of this year. The base price for the RS 3 Sportback3 is set at 60,000 euros, while the RS 3 Sedan4 is listed at 62,000 euros.
