Following the release of official RS3 info from Audi earlier this week comes this series of wallpapers sourced from the Audi.de website. Shown above is an RS3 fitted with the black optics package, which includes the gloss black grille; good, and the black wheel with red detailing; bad.
There are 17 pics in all from the gallery and you can check out the rest after the break, along with a promo video showing the RS3 in all its glory.
Further, here is a brief email exchange between AUSmotive and Audi AG:
Am: Is there any chance the RS3 will feature a manual gearbox in future?
Am: Is the production of the RS3 limited to 2700 units, or any other number?
Am: Is the quattro system exactly the same as found in the current model S3, or have there been some revisions?
Audi: The rear axle differential, prop shaft and drive shaft are reinforced.
