2016 Audi RS3 8v



Viewing by appointment only.

Here we are very pleased to offer for sale this Audi RS3 8v for a second time.

Having previously bought it from the original owner, we sold it to the delighted second owner earlier this year. Due to a change in circumstances we have purchased the car back & are pleased to offer it for sale again. With a great factory specification, two owners from new & a few subtle upgrades, this looks great value especially given the condition & low miles. A very nicely looked after & well presented example.

The RS3 8v appeared in 2015, at the time it was the most powerful production hatchback with 362bhp & 343lb ft!
We have known this car from new & this example has been cherished from new as is clear to see by the condition.

Body & Paintwork

Finished in Nardo grey, this RS3 looks fantastic.

Benefitting from the Black pack option & black mirror option, plus the privacy glass & gloss black 19″ Rotor alloy wheels, this really helps set the car off.
The calliper’s have been done in orange with RS3 logos & the RS3 badges have orange highlights, also a Maxton spoiler lip has been fitted… subtle touches which we think looks great, setting it apart from others in a sensible manner.

Very subtle lowering springs & spacers have also been fitted to give the car a slightly more aggressive look.

The bodywork itself is in excellent condition throughout, no damage or marks.
Previously machine polished & ceramic coated it still looks extremely fresh.

All lights, glass & badges are in good condition as well.

A really nice example of an RS3 8V.

Interior & Trim

Just like the rest of the car, the interior is in lovely well cared for condition.

Benefitting from various factory options, such as the Comfort & Sound Package (Bang & Olufsen audio, auto dimming rear mirror, cruise control, interior lights), the Extended Mono.Pur pack, the aluminium ‘Race Design’ Interior Inlays & of course the stunning Super Sports Seats with RS3 Embossing.

This RS3 also has the Reversing Camera & the Through Load Facility.

Seats are all in fantastic condition, as are the carpets, mats, peddles, steering wheel (which has had the airbag trimmed to match the alacantara section on the steering wheel), all trims & switches.

Everything works just as it should do, no worn switches/buttons like you sometimes find.
Just a beautiful example, a really nice place to be.


The RS3 8V was quite a force to be reckoned with when released, in fact at the time it was the most powerful production hatchback available.

This example has been the pride & joy of the only owner, with regular servicing being carried out. All of which at the Audi supplying dealer other than the most recent which was carried out at a very well respected specialist.

In terms of modification’s, this car has a very gentle remap which is substantiated with before & after dyno print outs.
368bhp/368lb ft before to 393bhp/421lb ft after. Also fitted is a 3.5″ intake pipe.
So extremely subtle upgrades.

The car starts, idles & drives exactly as you would hope.
No smoking, either on cold/warm idle, on boost or on overrun.

The performance is fantastic, with no hesitations through the rev range.
As you can see, the engine bay itself presents very nicely indeed, clearly having been a loved car.

Running Gear

All running gear is in good condition & driving on the road the car is fantastic.

Drives totally straight, braking is impressive & again brakes totally straight, the addition of DS2500 front pads & two piece front discs have helped improve over standard braking capabilities significantly.
The gearbox operates very nicely & performance is very good throughout.

Tyres are recently fitted Michelin Pilot Sport 4’s, & wheels are in unmarked condition.
