MY21 AUDI RS 3 LMS
Patriot Race Engineering is pleased to announce the all new second generation Audi RS 3 LMS.
Audi Sport customer racing continues its model offensive. The second generation of the Audi RS 3 LMS follows in the footsteps of one of the brand’s successful touring cars. Improved in many areas, the new model for global TCR racing had its virtual premiere at Audi Sport in Neuburg an der Donau on February 5th.
Audi Sport customer racing is perfecting the new RS 3 LMS entry-level touring car in a demanding environment prior to delivery to the customer teams: the newcomer to Audi Sport’s model range, which was unveiled just a fortnight ago, competes in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup, the most high-profile and fiercely contested TCR racing series worldwide.
Just like the previous RS3 LMS, the new race car has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine under the hood. It’s an evolution of the EA888 engine family and in this application, it delivers an output of up to 340 horsepower (250 kilowatts) at 6,250 rpm and 332 pound-feet (420 Newton-meters) of torque at 2,500 rpm. A thoroughly updated six-speed sequential racing transmission channels the power to the front axle, which is equipped with a multi-plate limited-slip differential with adjustable preloading.
