2023 Audi RS Q3 Edition 10 Years Celebrates Potent SUV, Capped At 555 Units
This is the new Audi RS Q3 Edition 10 years, created to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the performance-focused SUV.
Alterations made to the car start with the exterior where a new finish dubbed metallic Chronos Gray adorns the SUV and is restricted to this limited-run model. Customers will be able to opt for Dew Silver matte should they prefer, although it is available on all standard RS Q3 models.
Audi has also developed new 21-inch alloy wheels for the car, complete with a double-spoke design, a black finish, and wrapped in 225/35 tires at all four corners. A set of 19-inch carbon ceramic brakes are also available, complete with polished Antracite Gray brake calipers as standard but also available in red or blue for an additional charge.
Various other dark elements are found across the SUV’s exterior. These include darkened matrix LED headlights with dynamic flashing light and wing mirror housings. Gloss black also adorns the roof frame, window slot rims, and door trims, as are the blades across the front bumper and the rear diffuser. The Audi badge on the large front grille is also bathed in gloss black just like the badge on the tailgate.
Further differentiating an RS Q3 Edition 10 Years from the standard model are exclusive bucket seats adorned in a combination of leather of Dinamica microfiber and with matte carbon fiber seatback covers. Copper-colored stitching is also found throughout, including on the center of the seat, center armrest, door armrest, steering wheel, and the black floor mats. A handful of carbon accents are also found throughout.
No changes have been made to the powertrain, meaning it remains a 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder that pumps out 395 hp and 354 lb-ft (480 Nm) of torque.
The Audi RS Q3 Edition 10 Years is limited at 555 examples worldwide and available as a package starting at €5,990 ($5,801).
