The automobile brand Audi has started deliveries of their Audi RS 3 LMS and the first two models were handed over to their respective buyers at Neuburg.
The performance driven Sport GmbH division is planning to expand deliveries to other regions in the first half of 2017.
The Audi RS 3 LMS is a special edition car exclusively developed by the Sport division. It belongs to the Touring car category and is further expanding its presence in different parts of the world, including the Middle East. The TCR edition designed for the 24-hour run to take place in Dubai will be unveiled during the event. The event takes places on January 12th next year.
Creating customer sport cars has always been a matter of importance for Audi. The company continues to experiment in creating models that has the potential to reach their buyer base. While none of these cars can be considered inexpensive, the idea is to deliver sport car like performance for the average buyer. They can experience the best the auto brand has to offer.
At the moment, there are two different customer sport car models being offered by Audi. The Audi RS 3 LMS edition is powered by a 2-liter four-cylinder TFSI engine which is capable of delivering up to 330 horsepower. The car can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 4.5 seconds, standing true to the claim that it belongs to the sports car category.
The TCR variant of the RS 3 LMS base model is powered by a six speed racing transmission system. The model is priced at 129,000 euros which doesn’t include delivery charges and local taxes. The car is about to start deliveries in Europe before it finds its way to other parts of the globe, where eager buyers have already reserved their own edition. A cheaper variant of the car, the TCR version with S tronic direct shift transmission is available. The pricing for the model is confirmed to be 109,000 euros.
Buyers also have the option to go with an Audi RS 3 LMS club sport edition priced at 99,000 euros. With three different sporty models to choose from, buyers have the choice to pick what they like at varying price points. Official photos of the company executives handing over the first two cars were posted on the company website. Chris Reinke, head of Audi Sport said that he’s delighted to see such great support from buyers even though their ambitious initiative is still in its nascent stage.
