Audi Sport RS 3 LMS Makes U.S. Racing Debut At VIR In The Pirelli World  HERNDON, Virginia, April 26, 2017 – Audi Sport customer racing's Audi RS 3 LMS USA Clubsport is now available for purchase in the U.S. Four of the race cars will make their U.S. racing debut at Virginia International Raceway in the Pirelli World Challenge TC class this weekend in Alton, Virginia.

The Audi RS 3 LMS is a race-specific version of the RS 3 that made its world debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. Developed by Audi Sport customer racing for the new global TCR category, the Audi RS 3 LMS USA Clubsport version will also compete in the TC class of the 2017 Pirelli World Challenge.

'The entry-level Audi RS 3 LMS emulates the attention to detail associated with our production vehicles and is the perfect car for race competition or for amateur weekend track events.'

The Audi RS 3 LMS starts at $135,000 and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in about 4.5 seconds, achieving a top speed of about 240 km/h. In TCR trim, the proven four-cylinder two-liter TFSI engine delivers 243 kW (330 hp).
