The new Audi RS3 takes the phrase ‘hot hatch’ to another level entirely. It’s got an astonishing 394bhp to play with, using the 2.5 litre turbo from the TT-RS. The result is a gorgeous, and practical, sportback that will outrun a lot of far more pricey and far more flashy supercars. You’ll get to 62mph in a frankly ridiculous 4.1 seconds.
