Watch it take down some monsters!

At first glance, you'll notice its fearsome matte black exterior, but this RS 3's real magic lies beneath the hood. Gone is the brand's signature turbocharged inline-six. In its place? What appears to be a VR6. But this isn't just any engine. This powerhouse churns out an earth-shattering 1,400 horsepower, dwarfing the legendary Bugatti Veyron and nipping at the heels of the Chiron. And, to ensure this RS 3 maintains grip with such prodigious power, it's equipped with an all-wheel-drive system.
One might assume that with such unparalleled power, aesthetics would take a backseat. Not in this case. This Audi boasts a widebody kit, assertive fender enhancements, broad side skirts, reimagined front and rear bumpers, and a vented hood – making it as much a visual treat as it is a mechanical marvel. Safety hasn't been compromised either, with a roll cage installed, ensuring the driver remains shielded should things go awry. And to complete the look? Concave alloys encased in ultra-grippy tires for immediate, scorching takeoffs.
This hypersedan's prowess was on full display at Germany's Race 1000 half-mile event. And for those who weren't lucky enough to witness it in person, a YouTube video captures its awe-inspiring performance, clocking in at over four and a half minutes of pure adrenaline.
For perspective, the stock, previous-gen Audi RS 3 Sedan boasted 394 horsepower and could accelerate to 62 mph in just over four seconds, maxing out at 155 mph. And while the latest RS 3, retailing at $61,700 for the 2024 iteration, enjoys a modest bump in power to 401 hp and a 0-60 time of 3.6 seconds, it's clear that the modified behemoth, the 1,400-HP Audi RS 3, is in a league of its own.
In conclusion, whether you're an Audi aficionado, a supercar enthusiast, or just someone who appreciates raw power and finesse, this revamped RS 3 demands attention. It's not just a car; it's a statement, and its roar on the track will be echoing for a long time to come.
