The Audi RS3 is now available in the German online configurator. Go and build!
Did we learn anything during our own quick buildout? Interestingly yes. First, the car is only available in four colors – white, grey, black and red. Second, those believed color-matched wheels found in initial shots of the black optics package aren’t color-matched at all. If you opt for them they’re Audi’s 5-spoke rotor wheels with red painted accents no matter the exterior color. It appears from our test mockup provided by the configurator (above) that they’re available with both the black and silver optics options. It would also appear that those intake accents shown in all press photos are optional and not simply deleted with black optics as we’d originally believed. Those are some pretty aggressively styled configurations for a factory option and it’s interesting to see Audi taking such leaps with color accenting.
