It looks like Audi can't get enough of their brand new Q3 model. At the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, they brought out their Q3 Vail Concept followed up by the introduction of their RS Q3 Concept at April's Auto China 2012. Now, at the 2012 Worthersee show, Audi will be unveiling their new Q3 Red Track - a version of the compact crossover that focuses on drivers looking for more sport appeal out the Vail. Among the changes are LED daytime running lights and new lower body paint as well as the the company's 2.5 liter five-cylinder turbocharged engine, which pumps out a total output of 335 HP (or 25 HP more than the Vail concept). The car uses Audi's seven-speed S tronic transmission, which sends all its power to the Quattro all-wheel drive system allowing the Red Track to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds.

Paired with the Q3 Red Track, Audi will also present their e-bike concept, which arrives with a 48 volt lithium-ion battery that powers its 3 HP electric motor. Built on an ultra-light carbon-fiber frame (about 3.5 lbs) the bike can accelerate up to 50 mph with a  40-50 mile range after a 2.5 hour charge. Not to be satisfied with only function, Audi also tops off their e-bike with different modes that allow for different styles of riding, including a unique "Wheelie" function that lends a hand in helping you to pop a wheelie. Check out looks at both new rides after the jump. via: WorldCarFans
