    • New Audi S3 (Typ 8V) with 276 horses set to go head to head with the BMW M135i and Mercedes A25 AMG

      The new Audi S3 is coming and is said to be getting the new 2.0 motor the EA888. Horsepower figures are said to be at the 276 mark which is a bit less than what the M135i and A25 AMG will be packing. It will likely take an RS3 to match up or supersede those models. Still, the car offers good power and great looks. Despite the model being 22mm longer, 21mm taller, and 201mm wider it is expected to weigh 176 pounds less than the outgoing model. Now that is progress! Expect the official reveal shortly.
