At Audi, before the final transition to electricity, they decided to sit on the throne once more.

When it comes to compact hot-hatch cars, the title of the strongest and fastest has been held by the Mercedes A-class for some time. Audi doesn't like it too much, so we could easily see another special version soon.

So far (in Europe), the Audi RS3 has not exceeded 407 hp, and as the British Autocar has learned, the RS3 could soon reach new heights.

The jubilee celebration, the 40th anniversary of Audi Sport, is being prepared, and on this occasion, the 2.5-liter five-cylinder could get a more powerful edition, the head of the department, Sebastian Grams, confirmed for the British magazine.

"Honestly, we're very happy that customers are clamoring for that car, and we're not done with it, so to speak... We have five cylinders and we'll certainly increase them in the next step. We'll improve that."

At the moment, the Audi RS3 Performance Edition with 407 HP is the farthest, while the upper hot-hatch limit is currently held by Mercedes with a 2.0 turbo-petrol engine and 421 HP.

By comparison, the same Audi engine in the Donkervoort D8 GTO F22 produces over 500 hp.

The deadline is also known, which is the year 2026, when Audi will present the last model powered by an internal combustion engine.

When all is said and done, the swan song of the RS3 with an additional boosted engine will most likely appear in parallel with the facelift of the current generation Audi A3.
