2019 Audi RS3 9s Quarter-Mile 600HP Plus Release Date, Price, Redesign, & Spy Shots – The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon may supply sub-10-second quarter-mile runs from the factory, however, if you’re willing to go upgraded, even the most affordable Audi RS model comes near to complementing it. Case in point, this 600-wheel-horsepower Audi RS3.
Observed Audi and Volkswagen tuner APR introduced its RS3 development car to the drag strip last weekend break to test out some of the company’s most recent updates and maintained to set down a small number of remarkable instances. The quickest was a 9.83-second run at 144 mph. That’s just .18 seconds off the Dodge’s cited time for the Demon. Of course, to squeeze all that performance out of the RS3’s 2.5-liter inline-five, a lot of work required to be done.
With respect to the video explanation, APR’s RS3 features updates to the turbo internals, fuel system, and intercooler, plus a new intake, ECU tuning with E85 fuel, and straight-water pipe exhaust. Furthermore, the passenger seats happen to be eliminated, and the car sits on Hoosier drag radials.
Thinking of the cost of an RS3 plus all of all those mods, we’d guess costs for this installation would end up near the MSRP of a Demon (APR says these mods are a lot more prototypes and proof of concept stuff, however). Actually, it appears down to preference.
