AutoExpress has published a collection of photos of a believed RS 3 test mule doing its rounds at the Nurburgring. The shots are significant because this isn't the same Sprint Blue RS 3 test mule we're used to seeing. The chin shows differences and the front wheels at least are a new design.
With a name like RS 3 and knowledge of Audi's hardware you can bet this'll be an A3 with the TTRS' 2.5T 5-cylinder engine. If AutoExpress is right, the RS 3 will get the new 7-speed S-tronic DSG unit as one of or perhaps the only transmission choice. AutoExpress says the 2.5T FSI will be at a lower 330hp as well.
