The new Audi RS Q3 performance model has been revealed, but it won’t be coming to the U.S.

Audi says that the 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbocharged engine has been bumped up by 27 horsepower for a total output of 367, while torque has been pushed up to 343 pound-feet available between 1,625 rpm and 5,550 rpm. The sprint from 0 to 62 mph will take 4.4 seconds now while the crossover will hit a top speed of 167 mph.

The engine is matched to a seven-speed S tronic automatic transmission with power sent through Audi’s quattro permanent all-wheel drive setup. The RS sport suspension plus package outfits the crossover with damper control with a variety of settings.

To make sure the RS Q3 performance looks different than its counterpart, it gets matte titanium accents along with a new exclusive paint finish known as Ascari blue metallic. The 20-inch wheels are also finished in matte titanium with standard red brake calipers underneath.

Inside, Audi sport seats finished in black and blue are fitted, while an RS sport steering wheel, carbon twill blue carbon inlays and plenty of leather are also used.

Audi’s new performance crossover will make its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in early March of this year. Deliveries will begin the second quarter of 2016 with the Audi RS Q3 performance starting at 61,000 Euros.

Seeing as the standard Audi RS Q3 model is not offered in the U.S., this more powerful version won’t likely be making the trip to North America either.

Just make an SQ3 please! Put in the same engine as the S3 and Golf R. We will buy it!

0-62 in 4.4 is quite impressive. The peak torque hits especially early too which is great !

I'm hoping that the joint holder of the purse strings might consider letting me replace my current car with one of these between now and August 2017 when the PCP on the current car finishes.

I like quirkly cars that behave unexpectedly and have a hooligan aspect on demand. The Audi RS2 I was lucky enough to own and and run for 5 years did just that.
