How Audi RS Sports Cars Are Made - From Audi RS3 to Audi RS7
The Audi RS models from Audi Sport GmbH are the dynamic spearheads of their respective product lines. They have a strong character that consists of distinct design differentiation, full everyday usability, effortless top performance, and a thrilling driving experience. This results from a relentless focus on minute details by the designers and development and test engineers, and it is perfected over numerous test drives around the world. There is a behind-the-scenes look at development work.
Audi RS models are produced at four locations. The Audi RS3 Sportback, the Audi RS3 Sedan, the Audi RS4 Avant, the Audi RS5 Coupé, and the Audi RS5 Sportback roll off the line in the German plant in Ingolstadt.
The Audi RS6 Avant and the Audi RS7 Sportback are produced at the Neckarsulm site.
At the Hungarian plant in Győr, the Audi TT RS as a Coupé and Roadster, the RS Q3 and the RS Q3 Sportback are built.
The Audi RS Q8 is produced at the Slovakian plant in Bratislava.
All RS models are processed on shared systems with their sister models. The Audi press shops supply the specific sheet metal parts made of steel or, in many cases, aluminum that are then assembled in the body shop.
The marriage, that is the assembly station where the suspension and drivetrain are joined with the body, is very challenging in the case of the models with a V8 engine in particular.
RS-specific parts such as the exhaust system, bumpers, rear aprons, and wheels complete the RS models. A two-digit number of RS6 Avants and RS7 Sportbacks are built in Neckarsulm every working day. Each one of them is checked on a road course before being handed over to the customer.
The “Böllinger Höfe” factory is located close by the Neckarsulm plant, the headquarters of Audi Sport GmbH. This is where the sports and racing cars of the R8 family are built, in large part by hand, and the fully electric Audi e-tron GT will soon be built here, too.

    GREAT video! I'm an owner in the US and haven't hit 50,000mile/4 year warranty on my 2018 RS3 quite yet. Like many of my fellow RS3 owners around the globe I experienced many of the same annoying quirks/quality issues with the car. I complained about the exhaust noise (it was soooo embarrassing) OVER and OVER and OVER and FINALLY after 2 years the Audi service center (Silver Spring, MD USA) addressed the issue. While I'm not entirely sure what they did, the service tech explained that my entire exhaust system was replaced (and I have shinny new tail pipes to prove it). No more rattling (WIN). Keep in mind they also damaged my car during one of the service appointments and lied to my face about it (it was lifted improperly and it cracked the side skirt). They know what they did. Shortly after, they started video taping all service appointments for all vehicles in the service bay (fucking liars) as a new operational standard. Bitching aside, they also had to address a number of glitches with the cars computers because my Virtual cockpit would just black out for no reason whatsoever. In addition, my steering wheel mounted "wild card button" (as I like to call it) would have to be re-programed OVER AND OVER AND OVER (sometimes multiple times a day). I owned a 2015 S3 and that NEVER happened. They fixed it as well. Don't even get me started on the turbo lag....OMG. All in all...the ownership experience has left me feeling kinda meh, especially when considering its "limited" tech/creature-comfort offerings vs what you pay retail (OHhhhh, and they will make you pay...HAHAHAHAH). I think I'll give Porsche a try for my next automobile purchase because frankly, it doesn't look like Audi is going to be producing anything truly exciting (for us practical daily drivers) for another 10 to 15 years.

    Audi RS pitch meeting: So let's make a fast car with as much horsepower as an M car! Great! And the chassi, we'll make it as nice handling as an M car too? Chassi? Who cares?! Audi fans don't know enough about driving to tell the difference! Just put the engine in a shopping-cart and put som RS badges on it!

      You don´t know what youre talking about mate. I owned a M235i and yes that chassi is great but it was far from perfect. I drive an RS3 now and the chassi is very nice for the type of engine placement etc. The dampers are MEGA and they aren´t even magnetic. Ofc, the Bimmer was more fun on a windy road though less HP but the Audi is not boring at all. I tracked them both as well.

    Performance ? Not so much. The only Audi on the Nurburgring is the r8. Honda type R is there but not one Audi rs model is. That says enough. And prestige ? Using VW parts on what is supposed to be a luxury vehicle is not prestige it is infact the opposite, cheap.

    • Julien Thialon
      Julien Thialon

      you know that the RSQ8 is the faster SUV on the Nurb, but to compare to a sport car, it did the same time as a Lamborghini Gallardo superleggera?

  • dougo1807

    "We want to take Audi Sport to a whole new level".... Installs rev limiters...

    • JaNNeX1234

      @Julien Thialon Watch the new Lamborghini Huracan Evo. It's based and the 2020 R8. But it has no Rev Limiter and it is fucking loud.

    • Julien Thialon
      Julien Thialon

      @dougo1807 they don't care you are right, but they do care about polution, and raving your engine while you are not driving is considered has useless polution and also dB regulations

    • dougo1807

      @Julien Thialon I cant find that regulation any where and if there were a regulation by the EU, what is that supposed to protect? The Rev limiter is suppose to protect the engine from high rev damage. It does nothing for emissions. EU doesn't care about protecting your engine from rev damage.

    • Julien Thialon
      Julien Thialon

      @Sergio Casillas you guys know that it is for the EU regulation, other manufacturer or going. to do the same on their new models, mercedes and bow hasn't made a new model in 2020 only few facelift, their now gen will have the same rev limiter like the FAP and AdBlue, Audi were the first to put one already in 2017/18 on petrol model

    Bye Audi, you make beautiful cars but I’m going electric. No one has been able to keep up with Tesla as far as mileage range and having their supercharging network. I’m willing to potentially accept a slight lower quality of build but I’m tired of Audi and their maintenance.

    RS3 (400hp) changed the history of the HotHatch. the Previus 8P and Before FL 8V model was..... blunt.... the Last 8V made the change.... gave A45 and M2 a lesson, all day use, Value, Tunnig possibilities!! wish the new GEN one continues the strike.... 420+ hp and 0-100 front-rear power

    • Pheasant Pluckers son
      Pheasant Pluckers son

      Full of shit, the 1st 8P version changed the hot hatch market, the second generation improved it again, the face lift version was weakened and softened by the aluminium block engine and digital dash (Aluminium has two i and two U you will notice) and the engine sounds terrible in comparison The RS3 8V pre face lift 2015/2016 is raw, it’s a proper street car, and it sounds phenomenal, don’t be fooled and blinded by the claimed power figures either most of the early cars put out nearly 400bhp in real terms anyway

    🙄 Everyone keeps praising Audi. I am an Audi owner myself. Through experience of owning multiple Audis, each of them have had problems which needed to be rectified under manufacturer warranty, which is only 3 years. After that, you are literally screwed. I'm getting fed up of Audi's tactics of keeping everything to themselves. A person is forced to go to a dealership when there is a problem because third party mechanics are no longer able to fix the majority of problems on the newer models. Until Audi offer at least 5 years warranty, they won't be getting any praise from me.

    • Klopfer und Sid

      @Uyaze Antonio I currently have an S8 Plus D4. I previously owned an S8 V10 D3 and a 4.2 A8 D2. The older D2 model seemed to be more solidly built, than today's models and less complicated for maintenance.

    • Todd T

      My independent still gets it all done. I have a Stage 2 APR 3.0T and when I picked up my car he just finished working on a R8 V10 Spyder. I never go to the stealership. The cars cost about $1200 CAD per year average in repair/maintenance. Tires and brakes included. Seriously most stealerships just replace a broken part and anything near it. Just like Swiss watches, they are saying "We have the right to restore your car to it's factory level of performance". BTW, you can buy extended warranty or third party warranty. As a performance enthusiast, I just want the car so I can make it do exactly what I want, which typically isn't what Audi had in mind. I think they would lose their shit when they discover the fuel and timing table software has been deleted and replaced. Same with the software on the transmission. Before some asshat tells me about his Corolla not needing service, my car is a high performance car with 475-480hp and does a bit more work than the average car and I PUNISH IT. My lawnmower hasn't seen an oil change since 1993, which makes it more reliable than your Corolla.

    These are not really sports cars, they are just so well built and agile that you can drive your 5 door 7 seater diesel wagon as if it was a sports car. But take the TT or the R8 for a spin and you'll immediately understand the difference between a good wagon and a good _true_ sports car.
