Don't think I'd get one but looking forward to hopefully seeing an RS saloon again.

Yeah I'm contemplating one myself, really like the body styling on the current A3 and that video on the home page has made me want one even more, sounds excellent.

Hoping they do a saloon version Mike.

I love that Clubsport. If only it made it into production! I think the RS3 saloon (if there is one) will be nowehere near as nice as that. I reckon it'll look closer to the test mule.

Quote from the above TG article - "The RS3 is still undergoing final testing, so early part of next year is your best bet. It'll only be offered as a five-door, though Audi is considering the possibility of a four-door saloon RS3; a watered-down version of the delightfully bonkers Clubsport Quattro Concept we drove a while back."

Also - it's going to have launch control, definitely swaying more towards the idea of getting one!

Last one had LC also, unfortunately it had somewhat detrimental impact on a number of cars.

Ah ok, didn't realise, hopefully an improved system in the new car then.

Hard to tell from the camoflage paint job but it also looks like it will have wide arches this time as opposed to the previous one.

But I don't want a watered down version. I want identical styling but maybe consider watering the power down to about 400bhp for reliability.
