The weight to power ratio plays a key role for any sports car, hence Audi has done the same thing. The front grille is made of a high gloss back element which is molded into a honey comb shape.

A sort of vertical divide bar is made by the front apron insert which ends into the air intakes. The side mirror housing is also tinted with a matt aluminum trim. The bumper is also very well defined. Huge exhaust outlets and RS3 badges on the rear hatch conclude the rear updates which just make the back look even sportier.
