Audi brought the pavement-scorching goodness of the RS3 sedan to its hatch sibling، showing off the RS3 Sportback at the Geneva motor show this week.

The Sportback version now packs a turbocharged 2.5-liter TFSI inline-five engine good for 400 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque -- the most powerful production five-cylinder، according to Audi (though there can't be too many left) -- with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission sending all those horses to all four wheels. The upgraded powertrain represents a gain of 38 hp and 11 lb-ft of torque over the outgoing version، which debuted just three years ago، so the Sportback will now be able to make sprints from 0-62 mph in just 4.1 seconds، on up to an electronically limited 155 mph.

Along with the RS3 sedan، the Sportback is meant to be an RS-range gateway drug serving up a revised suspension، a wider track and 19-inch wheels in addition to all those horses. The RS3 Sportback offers several driving modes، with options that include carbon-ceramic brakes، sport seats and adjustable dampers.
