The Audi RS3ís official debut has been confirmed for 2011 Geneva Motor Show and reports are that it will get a slightly boosted version of the same 2.5 liter inline 5-cylinder TFSI power plant that was first introduced in the TT RS model.

According to Auto Express, the upcoming RS3 will come with 350 PS, 10 more PS than the engine's configuration in the TT RS model. The engine will be mated to a new 7-speed S-tronic gearbox (PQ500 unit) as an option (also available on TT RS for ordering now).

The British magazine has published photos of some of the RS3's interior components, including a speedometer that is calibrated to 310 km/h and a steering wheel with aluminum paddle shifters. But the RS3 will likely come with an electronically set speed limiter that will put the car on hold at the 250 km/h mark.

Audi said there will be only 2,700 units built - the exact same production number as the BMW 1-Series M Coupe.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
