Watch: You won't be able to run far if this 900hp Audi RS3 is chasing you
It has 900hp, and the owner daily drives it.
The Audi RS3 is a spectacularly quick car as is, powered by a 395hp (295kW) 2.5 litre turbocharged inline-5 which allows it to accelerate from 0-62mph in just 4.1 seconds. That however isn't enough for many owners of the hot hatch/saloon, who often take to tuning companies such as APR, ABT, MTM or Litchfield to name a few. These companies usually offer three stages of upgrade kits up to around 570hp (425kW) with a simple intake/intercooler and chip tune.
Even this however wasn't enough for one particular RS3 owner.

After $40,000 USD worth of upgrades, the owner of this RS3 has fitted a new turbocharger, clutches and a rebuilt engine that now displaces 2.6 litres. The end result is a whopping 900hp (671kW), which with all-wheel drive and launch control - the car manages a quarter mile sprint in just 9.8 seconds at 147mph (236km/h) making it faster than most production cars on the market. What's more impressive is that the exterior of the car remains almost completely standard - now that's what I call a sleeper.
The owner of the vehicle uses it as his daily driver, and it remains as practical as any other small saloon.
