Unleashing Performance Audi Rs 3 Preproduction Model Sets Nurburgring Lap Record

Ingolstadt, June 21, 2024 – Audi’s relentless pursuit of performance has culminated in a spectacular achievement on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife, where Audi Sport driver Frank Stippler piloted a preproduction model of the upgraded RS 3 to a record-setting lap time of 7:33.123 minutes. This feat not only establishes a new benchmark in its class but also reaffirms the RS 3 as the epitome of dynamic prowess in the compact car segment.

Central to this achievement is the RS 3’s enhanced cornering capabilities, meticulously fine-tuned to optimize agility and control. According to Frank Stippler, “The key to our success lies in the RS 3’s improved responsiveness at corner entry, facilitated by enhancements like brake torque vectoring. This allows for precise positioning through corners, minimizing steering input and maximizing acceleration from apex to exit.”

Driving dynamics are further elevated by a sophisticated torque splitter that intelligently distributes power between the rear wheels, complemented by electronic stabilization control and wheel-selective torque management. The RS sports suspension, featuring optional adaptive dampers, seamlessly integrates with these systems, guided by an advanced vehicle dynamics controller that enhances lateral performance with heightened precision.

Underpinning these advancements is Audi’s revered 2.5 TFSI five-cylinder engine, delivering 400PS and 500Nm of torque. Coupled with Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires, a 19-inch ceramic brake system, and a meticulously optimized chassis setup, the RS 3 exhibits unparalleled agility and control, accompanied by its distinctive, sonorous exhaust note—a hallmark of Audi’s iconic firing sequence.

Enthusiasts and prospective buyers can anticipate the upgraded RS 3 entering production and available for order starting late August, promising to deliver an exhilarating driving experience that blends track-bred performance with everyday usability.
