MY17 AUDI RS 3 LMS

The Audi RS 3 LMS was developed by Audi Sport customer racing for the relatively new TCR category. In addition to an international TCR series, with some of its races being held as part of FIA Formula One World Championship supporting programs, more and more national racing series for TCR touring cars are being founded. Even major endurance events like the Nürburgring 24 Hours are now including TCR classes.

The Audi RS 3 LMS accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in about 4.5 seconds and achieves a top speed of about 240 km/h. In TCR trim, the proven four-cylinder two-liter TFSI engine delivers 243 kW (330 HP).

In terms of safety, Audi Sport customer racing is not making any compromises. The extensive safety package includes an FIA-conformant safety fuel tank, a racing safety cell, the PS3 safety seat, FIA safety nets on both sides of the seat and a rescue hatch in the roof like the one used in the Audi R8 LMS.
