Audi's RS3 megahatch is here

AUDIíS TAKEN a stab at hot hatch glory with its new RS3. Stuffed with the brandís five-banger, itís not only now the most powerful hatch on sale, but grown the muscles to prove it. The front track is wider and the guards are bulged as a result. Itíll also use its 270kW to trample 100 clicks in 4.3 seconds.

Fast as it is, itíll have a challenge on its hands when Mercedes-AMG land its updated A45 on local soil. But until then, all hail the new king.
