21,500 MILES





Service History









If you’re a performance junkie looking for the ultimate white-knuckle ride, but still need to crush the daily commute or school run in comfort and style, then this retina-searing Catalunya red Audi RS3 Sportback won’t fail to impress. As one of the last non-OPF DAZA-engined variants of Audi’s storming hot hatch, it left the factory with £9,500 worth of Factory Optional Extras, but that represents merely the tip of the iceberg for this professionally tuned example.

Featuring over £18,400 worth of modifications from renowned VAG tuning house APR, including a conversion to stage 3 specification, it now outputs an astronomical 617PS on 99RON super-unleaded petrol, endowing this practical hatch with the ability to complete the 0-60mph dash in under three-seconds. However, fill up with a high-octane race fuel or methanol, and this figure leaps to over 700PS!

This ballistic shove comes courtesy of a TTE-700 turbocharger complete with supporting modifications of an uprated Wagner intercooler, enlarged throttle body intake and injectors and a APR carbon-fibre induction kit with an open cone-style filter. This latter upgrade combines with the fully de-catted RS Sports exhaust system to not only release the maximum power potential of the motor, but also endow it with a suitably steroidal soundtrack to match, which can be heard on our walkaround video.

This lust-worthy list of aftermarket upgrades comes on top of a similarly impressive catalogue of factory fitted options too, including the ‘holy trinity’ of panoramic sunroof, Matrix LED headlights and the ultra-rare RS interior design package. These exclusive options are rarely found together on an RS3, making this particular example even more desirable as a result.

Combined with other must-have options such as the SuperSport seats clad in black Nappa leather with red diamond quilting, the Comfort & Sound pack with high fidelity Bang & Olufsen sound system, as well as Audi’s excellent Virtual Cockpit with 12.3in screen and navigation, the factory options alone add up to nearly £10,000.

As a car that is well known to Automotive Addiction, having been supplied to its last two owners through us, we can assure you this car lives up to its incredible specification, and is in simply sublime condition to boot with only 21,500 Audi-Diagnostic verified miles from new.

As with all car’s sold by us, this impressive machine has received an additional 40 hours of meticulous preparation from our in-house professional detailers including multi-stage paint correction to ensure an unparalleled finish. Add to this the comprehensive and pedantic service history from the three previous RS enthusiast owners, underpinned by Automotive Addiction’s own hassle-free three-month warranty, and you can rest assured that not only the car itself, but all £18k worth of modifications, are running at peak performance and will offer a faultless driving and ownership experience for many years to come.

Our painstaking inspection process has revealed no instances of non-factory paintwork, so you can buy in confidence that this most searing of hot-hatches has led a life free of damage and is in simply impeccable condition both inside and out.

Please watch our walkaround video, which includes more information on this RS3’s highlight features including how it sounds. Contact us without delay if you wish to discuss this vehicle or secure it with a deposit.
