Secret out on Audi S3

Audi S3 to get 200 kW engine

Yellow doesn't quite work in the snow, and it was easy for our spy photographer to spot this new A3 model where it was undergoing winter testing.

The new S3 will probably be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in September.

It will come in three-door form only, but there according to our photos there will be a few subtle styling modifications such as a chrome grille.

Originally it was expected that the S3 will get the VW group's 3.2-litre V6 with a power output of more than 220kW.

However, now it seems more likely to get 2.0 TFSI engine, which is said to kick out 200 kW. The new S3 also comes with Audi's quattro all wheel drive system.
