Hey, hey, hatchback! World Car Fans posted some clear shots of what is likely the new Audi S3, set to launch at the end of this year for 2007. The shots indicate a close-to-showroom version engaged in Arctic Circle testing, with the only telltale sign of S-ness being an S3 badge on the steering wheel. WCF reports the S3 will get a juiced version of the A3's 2.0-liter TFSI engine reportedly producing 272hp, as well as all wheel drive.
