The Audi S3 is a hot hatch version of the Audi A3 small family car, produced by German automaker Audi since 1999. S3 Variants of both the first- and second-generation Audi A3 have been produced. Like all Audi S models, it is only available with quattro four-wheel drive system. The first generation S3 is built on the same A platform of the Audi A3, Volkswagen Golf Mk4, Audi TT, SEAT LeA³n and Ankoda Octavia. The straight-4 20v 1.8 L turbocharged petrol engine comes in two versions of power output: 210 PS (154 kW; 207 hp) and 225 PS (165 kW; 222 hp). Early models (1999-2001) had 210 PS (154 kW; 207 hp) which is said to be a de-tuned Audi TT engine, and was said to be reduced to lessen brand competition with the more powerful TT. Later models (2001-2003) had variable valve timing and 225 PS (165 kW; 222 hp). The engine provides a maximum 280 N m (210 ft lbf) of torque, most of which is available from 2200 through to 5500 rpm.Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.
