To reaffirm its strategy in the Chinese market, the luxury auto maker is set to unveil its new RS Q3 concept at Auto China 2012 in Beijing next week. Quipped with a 2.5-liter turbo engine with direct-injected five cylinder, the same powerplant found on the Audi TT RS, the performance-grade Q3 is capable of 0 to 62 mph in just 5.2 seconds. An aggressive styling, coupled with carbon fiber finishes, black trims, tinted headlights and a fish mouth-like grille up front. A redesigned rear continues the aggressive stance while a new integrated bumper improves aerodynamic efficiency.
