The RS3 LMS 2021 makes its official debut with many mechanical and technological updates, which will undergo relevant tests and evaluations over the next few months before sales begin later this year.

Finished off with a showy Audi Sport livery and the new generation features a giant grille, a rear-mounted center exhaust and a massive fixed rear spoiler mounted on the tailgate of the three-volume sedan unit.
Like the previous RS3 LMS, the new generation mounts a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine under the hood. It is a evolution of the EA888 engine family and now offers 250 kW of power (340 hp) at 6,250 rpm and 420 Nm of torque at 2,500 rpm. The mechanics are paired with a fully upgraded six-speed sequential racing transmission that transfers power to the front axle, which is equipped with a limited-slip differential.
The new generation of the model now has new features in the suspension and in the safety systems, among which the roll cage made of steel tubes, a six-point seat belt, competition seats, a fire extinguishing system and much more.
