So why have Audi built this 525bhp A3 monster?
And as per The Rules, Audi has built something special to rewards its fans. The MQB-platformed A3 saloon gets that 2.5-litre five-pot – the 2010 International Engine of the Year, no less – tuned to produce 525bhp and a whopping torque figure of 443lb ft.
It’s been upgraded with a bigger turbocharger capable of 1.5 bar of boost pressure, together with a modified intercooler and other unlisted ‘extensive modifications’ that, if they prevent this thing grenading itself at the redline, must be extensive indeed.
