Audi wants to spread the word about the new RS3 and has enlisted the help of our friends at PistonHeads to promote a series of videos about the ferocious new hot hatch.

The theme behind the six films is ‘born restless,’ and this first offering suggests why that might be the case.

Trading on the fact the RS3 has a 362bhp turbocharged five-cylinder engine under its bonnet, and the shared heritage with the similar engine that powered the legendary Quattro rally car, Audi has done the obvious thing and taken the two out to a forest together.

This is the first of three videos produced by Audi, while the team at PistonHeads has been given free rein to do something spectacular for its three. We’ll share them when they are available.

Watched it on another well known weekly car mag site,thought it was a bit of a stretch for what the Video implied,even i dare say a put down for the iconic Quattro.

"See what else it did, search RS3" Don't think I'll bother, I never search for adverts.
