Audi RS Q3 edition 10 years confirmed for Australia

Audi Australia has confirmed the highly limited Audi RS Q3 Sportback Edition 10 Years will arrive down under in Q2 of this year. Building on the already impressive SUV, it adds a host of exterior and interior features and details.

Among them is a striking exterior design, a performance-focused interior, and an outstanding driving experience, the latter thanks to the 2.5-litire TFSI turbocharged five-cylinder engine, paired with a sonorous exhaust note.

The RS Q3 Sportback edition 10 Years also adds exclusive black 21-inch alloy wheels, Audi badging and brake callipers, and most notably – racing-inspired RS front bucket seats with contrasting copper honeycomb stitching.

The contrast stitching is carried over to the black Alcantara steering wheel and gear lever, and mimicked in RS floor mats with copper highlights. The door entry greets passengers with a lighting projection in a unique rhombus design.

Two expressive exterior paint colours; Dew Silver matte effect or metallic Chronos Grey feature, with the option to add the RS ceramic brake system with carbon-fibre reinforced front ceramic brake discs an optional add-on.

Numerous add-on parts in black or glossy black emphasize the exclusive look of the edition. These include darkened matrix LED headlights with dynamic flashing light and wing mirror housings.

The roof frame, window slot rims, and door trim are available in glossy black. The same applies to the blades on the front spoiler and the diffuser insert. The sporty look is rounded out with the four rings and model lettering in glossy black.

For the first time in an RS Q3, passengers take their seats in exclusive RS bucket seats, featuring matte carbon seat backs, and leather-Dinamica combination upholstery. Copper-coloured stitching, repeated throughout the entire interior, creates a special contrast.

The front seats feature 3-stage heating and are manually adjustable. The 10 year edition also boasts exclusive decorative inlays in a carbon matte-finish.

  1. Thank you for the write up and providing the vehicle details. With regards to the RS sports exhaust system, I am reasonably sure that this will be standard for the Australia vehicles – apart from that, the vehicle is impressive. Audi has always built vehicles that are are a bench mark for other manufacturers when it comes to quality of interior and exterior finish. Add to this an engine that has been voted worlds best 9 year running and an all wheel Quattro drive system that has not been matched or bettered – mind you some have come close.
    Based on the limited number being built (555) I suspected that there won’t be more than just a handful destined for Australia and will disappear quickly – will these edition 10 years become a collectors vehicle, quite possibly, especially if the 2.5 5 cylinder engine production stops.
