Caveat, it's Autoexpress, so more than likely made up... a bit like the Daily Mail is most days. Though I could imagine the A3 taking styling q's from the new A1. They also reckon the new A3 will see the light this summer (German Motor Show?) with cars landing end of the year. 

 

As for the power sweepstake, I reckon the RS3 will be 425BHP, crazy if it is.

If they follow the previous pattern then it should get a 30+ PS hike.

Can’t see it being available until 2021 myself.

Yep 2021 would be my guess for an RS to appear... though in 2 years time what other cars will be crazy power wise, next Ford FOcus RS will most likely be 400 BHP too. It will be interesting to see what happens over the next 5-10 years. Performance of petrol cars will need to be quite wacky to tempt people from not looking at an electric kick for speed thrills.

 

Though nothing can beat the sound of a decent RS engine with some proper trumpets on the back to give it a sweet sound of burning gasoline.

On the topic of Ford. The new ST has a fair hike in power now using a 2.3L like the current RS. Wonder what the next focus RS will have?
