The Audi RS 3 Sportback is the hot hatch version of the Audi A3 compact luxury hatchback. It had a limited production between 2011 and 2012 and was available exclusively in 5 door hatchback form. In fact, the Audi RS 3 Sportback is one of the few 5 door hot hatches in the Asphalt series, not just Asphalt 8: Airborne.
The RS 3's turbocharged 2.5L inline-five engine was sourced from the Audi TT RS Coupé, which was priced higher than the RS 3. Unlike the TT RS Coupé, no manual option was provided with a 7-speed S-tronic twin-clutch automatic transmission being standard across the board. A total of 750 units were produced.
The Audi RS3 Sportback was featured in the free iOS app, Asphalt: Audi RS3. It was later released in the first update of the full game.
The Audi RS3 Sportback is a Tier 2 vehicle, and is a prize of Career Cup 2. It costs 68,000 Cash.
The Audi RS 3 Sportback is the first Class C car in the game. It has a starting rank of 877, a maximum rank of 1138, and a final rank of 1187. It is actually NOT the weakest non-electric Audi vehicle in the game, as when MAX+PRO it is faster than the Audi TTS and the Mercedes SLS AMG Electric Drive. This makes it the recommended car to buy first, even though it has a disappointing nitro duration, followed by the Lotus Exidge S and the Felino cb7. It has the lowest MAX+PRO rank in C class.
The Audi RS 3 Sportback, as a starter's Class C car, features decent acceleration. While having a mediocre top speed, it isn't the worst top speed of Class C. Despite being a four-door car, it actually handles relatively well. The nitro leaves much to be desired.
The Audi RS 3 Sportback costs 1,950' to purchase and 213,800' to max out. It is the only vehicle in the game (not counting vehicles with discounted prices) whose Credits price is not evenly divisible by 100.
