2012 Audi RS3 Live Photos: 2011 Geneva Motor Show

Follow Nelson

Full details on the 2012 Audi RS3 have been out for months now, including its brawny yet compact 340-horsepower turbocharged 2.5-liter inline five-cylinder engine, but today in Geneva, we got a good look at the car in person.

It looks, well, hot, as a true hot hatch--even super-hatch--should. At a sturdy 3,472 pounds, it's no lightweight, but the quattro all-wheel drive and potent powerplant still rocket the car to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds and on to an electronically-limited 155 mph top speed.

Aggressive body treatments, including two gaping maws flanking a mesh grille, give the RS3 the look it deserves. Is it coming to the U.S.? We don't know for sure, but if it does, it'll be pricey: the European version starts from 49,900 euros.
