Here’s a few pictures of the new Audi S3 in all its glory.

Audi’s top-of-the-range version of the A3 boasts 265 bhp and quattro permanent four-wheel drive.

The sprint to 62 mph is accomplished in 5.7 seconds while top speed is governed by the mean Germans to 155 mph. Aggressively hard-hitting, free-revving and with a sonorous acoustic profile, the powerful two-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder unit with FSI petrol direct injection proves to be a smooth, high-performance engine.

This power is transmitted by the six-speed gearbox and quattro permanent four-wheel drive to large alloy wheels with an 18-inch diameter. The new S sports suspension system on the S3 enables an extremely drops the car 25 mm closer to the autobahn.

The single-frame grille sports chrome trim, the front skirt has a spoiler with large air-intakes and the side sills have been restyled. There is a contrasting platinum grey diffuser built into the rear skirt, along with two S-style oval chrome tailpipes.
