Do you like odd cars? If so, the Audi RS 3 is for you.
It’s the only five-cylinder four-door left in America. Powered by the same 400 hp 2.5-liter turbo featured in the TT RS coupe, it’s also one of the quickest sport sedans you can buy.
It’ll do 0-60 mph in under four seconds, and can be outfitted to hit 174 mph. The subcompact family car is equipped with Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system, of course, and front tires that are wider than the rears to make the best use of it.
Few cars handle with the precision the RS 3 exhibits. Some people will find it too perfect, but there is a breed of driver who would have nothing else. For them, $55,450 is a small price to pay, and so is the seventy grand that a fully-optioned RS 3 sells for.
